John Egan was the surprising match-winner for Sheffield United in one of the expected football scores of the Championship. Sheffield beat Hull 3-1 as they hope to catch up after a disappointing start to the season. Billy Sharp scored the opener for the visitors on his 300th appearance for the club. He missed the chance to score his second of the game from the penalty spot. John Egan made sure that the penalty miss would not prove costly when he scored his goals in the 50th and 61st minutes respectively. Keane Lewis-Porter scored a consolation goal for the home side to break a six-game streak without a goal.
Hull’s Grant McCann: “We came up against a very good team who will only get better and better. But, for us, we’re disappointed. We need to do better, it’s as simple as that. We’ve got to grow up as staff and players. Teams are aggressive but we need to be aggressive – especially with set-pieces. Things aren’t going our way and we’re all not at this level yet.”
Sheffield United’s Slavisa Jokanovic: “I am satisfied with the performance and the three points, but it’s not enough. We have scored 11 goals (in three games), but we need to improve on a lot of things. I was missing a little bit of our killing spirit. A lot of times we had space and we were in the situations to try to be a bit more dangerous.”
