Sheffield United will look to return to winning ways this weekend as they travel to Hull City.
The Blades were unable to record back-to-back wins in midweek, conceding in stoppage time in a 2-2 draw with Preston North End.
But Slavisa Jokanovic’s side cannot dwell on that late frustration, and they will now look to put another three points on the board this weekend.
Hull, meanwhile, haven’t won since the opening day of the season, and haven’t even scored a goal since their 4-1 win at Preston that day.
The odds are stacked against the Tigers this weekend, with United’s squad on paper much better than the side who sit 21st in the table on five points.

Does Sky Sports’ David Prutton predict an upset? He gave his prediction, and picked a 2-1 away win for the Blades.
He then went on to say: “It’s been a bumpy return to the Championship for Hull. They thumped four in on opening day but have not managed a goal since, which is of real concern.
“Sheffield United have had a decent week despite that late disappointment against Preston in midweek, but at least the goals are coming now for Slavisa Jokanovic’s side. I think Hull could score, but I do not think they will get anything from the game.”
I think United will win this one.
I just think that the Blades have more quality than Hull at the moment, and it looks as if they are starting to gel.
They should have picked up maximum points from their last two games, but it didn’t happen and they need to move on.
Morgan Gibbs-White looks like a really smart addition, and going forward, I just think they will have too much for their Yorkshire rivals.
Hull have struggled to score goals this season, meanwhile, so it is hard to see where they will hurt United this weekend or cause problems.
