Hull City take on Sheffield United in the semi-final of the FA Cup at Wembley on Sunday, with both sides eyeing a place in the final on 17 May.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 4:07pm BST. Live coverage is on BT Sport 1. Radio commentary of the game will be on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Hull's preparations for the semi-final got a necessary boost after they registered a 1-0 victory against Swansea City in the Premier League at the KC Stadium last Saturday. George Boyd netted the game's only goal, helping the Tigers climb to 13th place in the league table with 36 points after playing 33 matches.

Steve Bruce's side brushed aside Sunderland, 3-0, in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup at home last month with the help of goals from Curtis Davies, David Meyler and Matty Fryatt in the second half.

Hull have never made it to the final of the FA Cup and Bruce will be hoping to guide his side into Wembley once again aspiring to lift the trophy just like he did thrice during his playing days.

Meanwhile, Sheffield ended their three match winless run in League One by registering a 1-0 victory against Rotherham United at Bramall Lane last Tuesday. Ben Davies netted the winner in the 90th mintue from the penalty spot.

They sit 11th in the table with 56 points having played 41 matches with very little chance of making it into the last play-off spot for promotion into the Championship.

Nigel Clough's side defeated Championship side Charlton Athletic 2-0 at home to secure their place in the last four of the FA Cup last month. Two quick-fire goals in the second half from Ryan Flynn and John Brayford were enough for Sheffield to book their tickets to Wembley.

Clough will be hoping to add another scalp from the top-flight having seen off Aston Villa and Fulham in the third and fourth rounds of this competition respectively.

The winner of this semi-final will face Arsenal in the final on 17 May. The Gunners emerged victorious 4-2 after a penalty shootout against holders Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

What Managers Say

Steve Bruce: "I've always said that this cup run has given us a huge lift. Just when we've needed a result, we've got one in the FA Cup and that has kicked everybody on again. We had a bad league run in January, got a good cup win and that lifted everybody. The FA Cup has worked fantastically for us and I hope that it can give us an end of season boost too."

Nigel Clough: "Steve (Bruce) changes his formation at times, like we do, so we'll all be second guessing each other in the next day or two. He is settled at the KC Stadium and looks to have secured Hull another season in the top-flight. Let's be honest, our chances are slim and that is because we are playing a team that is two divisions higher than us. They have Premier League quality and I don't think anyone would argue that we are massive underdogs."
