Result: Abel Hernandez salvages draw for Hull City against Sheffield United

Abel Hernandez nets late in the match to cancel out Jamie Murphy's opener to earn Hull City a draw in their pre-season friendly match against Sheffield United.

Abel Hernandez scored a late equaliser to earn Hull City a 1-1 draw against Sheffield United in their final match of pre-season.

The Blades threatened when Che Adams turned Alex Bruce with ease and raided into the box, but his low effort was saved by Allan McGregor.

Callum McFadzean collected the ball outside the box and then drove into the area for the home side before firing at goal, but McGregor made the stop, while Billy Sharp's strike on the rebound went wide of the target.

Stefan Scougall was the next United player to give the Hull backline problems as he weaved his way past a defender before shooting from a tight angle, but Michael Dawson was there to make an important block.

Hull's first opening came when Sone Aluko found space to drill a left-footed strike at goal, but Mark Howard was able to make the stop.

The Blades took the lead when Jamie Murphy raided into the box from the right and his strike was too powerful for McGregor to hold as the keeper just failed to keep the ball out.

The Tigers pushed for a leveller in the second half when they won a free kick just outside the box, but Aluko curled his effort over the bar.

Steve Bruce's men got an equaliser in the 79th minute as Matty Dixon released the run of Hernandez, and the forward unleashed a half-volley which beat George Long to find the net.

The Blades attempted to regain their lead late in the game through Martyn Woolford, but his shot was blocked. From the resulting corner, a header was cleared off the line as Hull managed to hold out for the draw.
