Hull City will end their six-game goal drought this weekend, but the Tigers’ winless run will be extended to six matches when they face Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United.
That’s according to Sky Sports’ Hull-born EFL presenter David Prutton, who believes the Blades will back up a thumping win over Peterborough and draw with Preston, by winning 2-1 at the MKM Stadium in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.
Tuesday night’s defeat at Blackburn Rovers was City’s fourth of the campaign, though even more alarmingly for the Tigers was their inability to score a goal.
It’s now more than nine hours since City hit the net, with their only four goals in the campaign coming on the opening day at Preston North End and concern growing at their struggles up top.

For their part, Slavisa Jokanovic’s Blades are yet to find the net away from Bramall Lane this term and sit just one point and two places above City.
United are hardly prolific themselves away from home having netted just seven in total in their last 20 games, albeit a large chunk of those coming in the Premier League.
“It’s been a bumpy return to the Championship for Hull, Prutton said of his hometown club in his latest round of predictions.
“They thumped four in on opening day but have not managed a goal since, which is of real concern.
“Sheffield United have had a decent week despite that late disappointment against Preston in midweek, but at least the goals are coming now for Slavisa Jokanovic’s side.
“I think Hull could score, but I do not think they will get anything from the game.”
