Hull City have gone bottom of the Championship after losing 1-0 to Sheffield United yesterday at Bramall Lane.
It has been a disastrous start to the 2018/19 season for Nigel Adkins and his side and they look set for a tough year trying to avoid relegation to League One.
Hull played alright yesterday against a strong Sheffield United side and dealt with them well. The Tigers could have easily taken the lead in the second-half but an impressive save from Dean Henderson denied Markus Henriksen in front of the travelling away fans.
The Blades then went up the other end and won a penalty after Tommy Elphick pulled Jack O’Connell down in the area. David McGoldrick then sent David Marshall the wrong way from the spot and that was enough to earn Chris Wilder’s side a valuable three points and send them top of the league.
Hull have had a difficult week having played Middlesbrough, Leeds United and Sheffield United in the space of seven days and only managed to gain a point. They have not won in five games and it is looking very bleak for the Yorkshire side.
Next up for Adkins’ side is an important home tie against fellow strugglers Preston North End at the KCOM Stadium after the international break.
Here is how Hull fans on Twitter reacted to going bottom of the Championship yesterday-

Bottom of the league, a clueless manager, players who just are not good enough & don’t have any desire & owners who have ripped the heart & soul out of the club. But still some delusional morons still back the Allams?? #hcafc @bbcburnsy
