Hull City boss Nigel Adkins heaps praise on his players following their 1-0 win over Sheffield United.

Hull City manager Nigel Adkins has heaped praise on his players following their 1-0 victory over Sheffield United in the Championship Yorkshire derby.

The former Southampton boss expressed his delight at his team's work-rate during the match, singling out goalscorer Nouha Dicko for plaudits.

"I'm pleased for the players because they've put in another good performance," Adkins told Sky Sports News.

"That's seven undefeated at home and they've given everything.

"It was nice for Nouha Dicko to score. It was a nice finish and it will do his confidence the world of good."

The win moves Hull up to 20th place in the Championship table, three points clear of the dropzone ahead of the weekend's fixtures.
