Billy Sharp scored his 114th goal for Sheffield United to give them the lead against Hull City

Billy Sharp scored on his 300th appearance for Sheffield United and missed a penalty as struggling Hull were easily beaten at the MKM Stadium.

Sharp finished off a sweet move by heading in Morgan Gibbs-White’s perfect right-wing cross to put the Blades in front.

Although Hull goalkeeper Matt Ingram superbly saved Sharp’s spot-kick just before half-time, the visitors took control after the break.

Two John Egan headers – both from corners – killed off any hope of a Hull comeback despite Keane Lewis-Potter’s consolation, their first goal in more than 10 hours.

The win extends Slavisa Jokanovic’s side’s unbeaten run to five games, while the Tigers slipped into the relegation zone.
