Hull City v Sheffield United 0-2: Oli McBurnie and Sander Berge send the Blades back to the top

Sheffield United claimed top spot in the Championship with an environmentally friendly win at the MKM Stadium to complete Hull City’s excellent home record.

Oli McBurnie put the energetic Blades ahead when his 20th-minute drive wriggled through the fingers of Tigers keeper Matt Ingram at close range to submit for his third goal in as many video games.

In-form Oscar Estupinan was twice denied by Wes Foderingham after being sent free earlier on as Ozan Turfan hit the roof of the internet as Hull failed to make the most of their opportunities to graduate.

The Blades gave positive results in a largely scrappy second half when Sander Berge’s deflected shot 16 minutes from time beat a helpless Ingram.

Their unusual away win – just the visitors’ second in their last 11 league games on the highway – moved them back above Norwich at the top of the table with a sixth win in their last 9 trips to Hull.

After failing to secure a fourth straight home three-factor for the first time since the 1983-84 season, the Tigers dropped to twelfth after a second straight loss.

More to respect.
