Goals from Jose Baxter and Stefan Scougall had helped the Blades into a 2-1 half-time lead, with Yannick Sagbo briefly equalising for City.

However, Steve Bruce's men emerged reinvigorated from the break and struck twice within the opening ten minutes through Matty Fryatt and Tom Huddlestone to overhaul the deficit.

Stephen Quinn came off the bench to add a fourth for City, heading home a Jake Livermore cross within two minutes of being introduced.

The pendulum swung the way of the League One outfit once more in the closing stages, as Jamie Murphy scored on 89 minutes to set up a tense finale to the clash.

However, with United pressing for a dramatic equaliser to force extra time, Hull broke in numbers and killed off the encounter once and for all through David Meyler as the Tigers booked a date with the Gunners on May 17.
