Sheffield United vs Hull City in the Championship on Feb 15. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Sheffield United vs Hull City in the Championship on Feb 15. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Sheffield United are one of the form sides in the Championship and midweek action in the second tier sees the visit of Hull to Bramall Lane.

It’s been a period of change for the Tigers, who have seen new owners take over the club in recent weeks. That spelt the end for former manager Grant McCann, who was swiftly removed from his position and replaced by former Rangers striker Shota Averladze.

The Georgian has had a mixed start to life in the Championship and he faces an uphill task if his side are to get anything from the Steel City.

Sheffield United To Score Firsth

When you look at the form of the two sides, there’s surely only one winner in this one.

The Blades are displaying some real cutting edge, winning all of their last four games (prior to their weekend clash with Huddersfield and they’ve only tasted defeat twice in their last dozen outings.

Hull, meanwhile, have lost back-to-back games in the space of a few days and they’re unlikely to get much change out of table-topping Fulham when they meet at the weekend. The Tigers were particularly poor in defeat to Derby last Tuesday, showing a distinct lack of confidence and bite in all departments.

A man in form for Sheffield United is Billy Sharp, who has found the net in five consecutive Championship games, including his side’s first goal in their four victories. We fancy the hosts to start quickly, so our selection here is for Sheffield United to score first at 2/5 with Sportnation.

Sheffield United Form, squad news, opinion

Plenty was expected of Sheffield United when they were relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season.

But a poor start to the campaign saw manager Slavisa Jokanovic get the boot, and while new boss Paul Heckingbottom hasn’t had everything his own way as far as form is concerned, he is slowly starting to build some momentum. At the time of writing, the Blades sit 10th in the Championship, just one point off the play-offs, but with a couple of games in hand over several sides above them in the table, their destiny remains in their own hands.

And they come into this one in very good home form, winning their last three home matches 2-0, against Bristol City, Luton and West Brom.

Jack O’Connell (knee) was joined on the sidelines by striker Rhian Brewster after pulling up with a hamstring injury against Peterborough a couple of weeks ago and the former Liverpool man looks set to miss the rest of the season.

Hull City Form, squad news, opinion

The newly promoted visitors have had a season of ups and downs, but new ownership means better days are surely on the horizon.

Like their hosts, the Tigers had a poor start to the season and were in serious relegation danger during the festive period.

But three straight wins in January gave them some breathing space and they’re now comfortably clear of the likes of Peterborough and Derby.

But they still can’t afford to take their foot off the gas. They’ve picked up some handy results away from home in recent months, but only a handful of sides have lost more than their nine defeats on the road this season. Goalscoring is also a major issue, with their haul of 26 goals meaning they average less than a goal per game.

Finally, Hull will have to contend with a poor recent record against the red half of Sheffield, who they’ve lost their last three games against and haven’t beaten away from home in more than a decade.

Averladze has no fresh injury or suspension concerns, although midfielder Greg Docherty is just one yellow card away from a one-game ban.

History

These two have plenty of history, having met a total of 71 times since their first joust more than a century ago. Despite both having spells in the Premier League, they have never faced each other in the top flight.

Sheffield United have a significant edge when it comes to victories, with 32, while Hull are trailing way behind on 20. 19 of the meetings have ended in a draw.

About the Venue

Bramall Lane is one of the oldest stadiums in the country, having opened all the way back in 1855.

It’s had several renovations in that time and the capacity has fluctuated somewhat, but it now stands at just over 32,000.

Conclusion

These sides are in contrasting form and both appear to be heading in opposite directions at the moment.

Sheffield United are on the crest of a wave and look a great bet to make the end-of-season play-offs. Hull, on the other hand, know that they’re likely to be safe from relegation and, right now, are playing like it.

Expect the Blades to come out all guns blazing and take all three points.
