SUMMARY: Sheffield United 4-1 Hull City

Hull City's defensive frailties and poor recent form came back to bite hard at Bramall Lane, despite being involved in a game they were leading at the interval. When matters off the field are ridiculously unsettled and severe differences of long standing remain unresolved over an inexorable amount of time between the owners and the fans, eventually, a toll will come. Right now, it feels like that day has come to pass. And the payment is heavy.

Pirates. Blades. Misery.



The hosts looked lively early on, but it was the visitors who surprisingly drew first blood, when Grosicki picked up the ball in the Sheffield United half and ran unchecked to smash in a long range effort that beat home keeper Moore on 29 minutes. The Tigers were attempting to remain compact and operate on the counter - a tactic that served the Tigers well to maintain their advantage to the interval.

Unfortunately for Hull City, their half time lead subsided within seven minutes of the restart when Clark side-footed into the roof of the net. The bad form City are in came home to roost when Clarke again was tormentor-in-chief to turn the match completely around for Sheffield United. Firstly putting the hosts in front on 76 minutes, before completing his hat-trick to make it 3-1 just four minutes later. To add insult to injury, Clarke netted his and the Blades' fourth, two minutes from time.

Without exaggeration, the death knell is sounding, on Allam rule at Hull City.
