Match Preview

Bogdanovic back for the Blades Sheffield United's caretaker manager John Carver will be boosted by the return of striker Daniel Bogdanovic for the home clash with Hull. Bogdanovic has completed a three-game ban and will be in contention for a return to the starting line-up. Otherwise, Carver and assistant Sam Ellis will be selecting from an unchanged squad and are unlikely to make any unforced changes following last week's home win over Swansea. Midfielder Lee Williamson returned to the bench last week following a back injury and provides another option, while goalkeeper Richard Wright missed out against Swansea due to a thigh problem. Jamie Ward has shaken off a virus and is pushing for a starting place after stepping off the bench last week, but fellow forward Richard Cresswell sits out the last game of his three-match suspension and defender Chris Morgan (knee) has been ruled out for the rest of the season. Jimmy Bullard is hoping to return to Hull's squad. The Tigers midfielder has been sidelined since early October with knee ligament damage, but manager Nigel Pearson revealed earlier this week that the 32-year-old was expected to be in contention. Pearson could also be boosted by the return of midfielder Nick Barmby (leg infection), winger Richard Garcia (knee) and striker Mark Cullen (ankle), who all missed out last week but have since rejoined the first-team squad for training. But the Tigers will definitely be without left-back Andy Dawson, an ever-present this season, who will sit out a one-game ban after reaching five yellow cards. Kevin Kilbane could step in for Dawson as Hull look to extend their unbeaten league run to seven matches.

Match Report

Bullard blunts Blades Jimmy Bullard stepped off the substitutes' bench to fire a stoppage-time winner in his first appearance in 12 weeks as Hull heaped more misery on managerless Sheffield United with a 3-2 win at Bramall Lane. Bullard, sidelined since early October with knee ligament damage, was introduced in the second half with his side leading 2-0 thanks to a first-half double from striker Jay Simpson. Blades forward Ched Evans then scored twice as the Blades, booed off by sections of their home support at half-time, staged a brave second-half fightback. Simpson, who ended his season-long goal drought last week with both goals in Hull's 2-0 home win over Bristol City, opened the scoring in the third minute and converted a penalty in first-half stoppage time. Evans pulled one back for United in the 62nd minute and fired an equaliser 11 minutes later, but Bullard, in only his fifth appearance of the season, converted another cross from on-loan Manchester United midfielder Cameron Stewart, who also set up both Simpson's goals, in the 93rd minute. United caretaker-manager John Carver named the same side that started in the 1-0 win over Swansea in his first game in charge last Saturday. Kevin Kilbane was recalled at left-back for Hull in place of the suspended Andy Dawson. Simpson gave Hull a flying start when he clinically despatched Stewart's fine cutback from 12 yards in the third minute after a flowing move down the right involving Robert Koren and Liam Rosenior. The Blades were dealt another early blow when defender Andy Taylor was forced off with what looked like a serious injury and replaced by Matt Lowton in the 12th minute. Hull winger Jamie Devitt clipped a free-kick over the crossbar soon after, following Evans' high tackle on Kilbane, which led to the visiting defender hobbling off several minutes later due to a gashed head. Fellow Irishman Paul McShane was sent on in his place. The Blades were forced into another change late in the first period when injured midfielder Stephen Quinn was replaced by Jamie Ward. Neither side created a clear goalscoring chance after Simpson's opener until Hull doubled their lead deep in time added on at the end of the first half. Blades centre-half Nyron Nosworthy tripped the impressive Simpson in the area and the former Arsenal striker picked himself up and confidently sent home goalkeeper Steve Simonsen the wrong way with the subsequent penalty. Lowton's header from Andy Reid's corner six minutes into the second half prompted Hull goalkeeper Vito Mannone into his first meaningful save and Blades winger Mark Yeates fired over the crossbar soon after. Bullard replaced Koren in the 62nd minute, but the Blades cut the deficit moments later when Evans lashed the ball into the bottom corner following Reid's ball into the box. Reid set Evans up for his second and the Blades' equaliser nine minutes later. The Irish midfielder, on loan from Sunderland, crossed again from the right and the Wales international finished in similar fashion from inside the area. But United were dealt a late knockout blow when Bullard swept home Stewart's cross in the third minute of time added on to extend the Tigers' unbeaten run to seven matches.
