Sheffield United will be aiming to pick up their fifth win on the trot over Hull City when they go head-to-head at the Bramall Lane Stadium on Wednesday.

The hosts head into the game on a four-game winning streak, while the visitors are without a win in any of their last three outings.

Sheffield United continued their fine string of performances as they claimed a narrow 1-0 win over Fulham last Monday.

Paul Heckingbottom’s men have now won each of their last most recent games on the spin, while they are unbeaten in their last five.

The resurgence has seen the Blades rise to 11th place in the EFL Championship table, four points behind the playoff places, after claiming 32 points from 22 games.

Meanwhile, Hull City's blistering run of results took a slight halt as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at Nottingham Forest last time out.

Prior to that, Grant McCann’s men were on a six-game unbeaten run, claiming four wins and two draws in that time.

With 23 points from 23 games, Hull City are currently 19th on the log, four points above Peterborough United in the final relegation spot.
