Sheffield United head to Hull with the keys to the Premier League in their hands.

A dramatic Good Friday allowed the Blades to leapfrog Leeds back in to second and they know if they win their last three games they are all but certain to be back in the top flight.

Striker and talisman Billy Sharp and midfielder Chris Basham (both hamstring) remain out, but John Egan returns from a one-match ban for Chris Wilder’s men.

United know that barring Leeds overturning a goal difference of six, all they need to do is match their Yorkshire rivals’ results.

Hull saw their outside hopes of making the play-offs fade in a thrilling loss to West Brom.

Manager Nigel Adkins is set to be without Markus Henriksen (back) and Reece Burke (ankle).

City are seven points outside the top six with three games remaining.
