Match preview: Sheffield United vs Nottingham Forest

Sheffield United sealed their place in the top six with an emphatic win over Fulham.

The Blades thrashed the champions 4-0 at Bramall Lane.

Gibbs-White, Ndiaye, Berge and Stevens scored the goals for the hosts.

Wins in each of their final three matches was enough to see them remain in the top six following a slight wobble.

Paul Heckingbottom’s side finished the season in 5th place.

Nottingham Forest edged out of 3rd place

Nottingham Forest just missed out on 3rd place on the final day of the season.

Steve Cooper’s side also had the chance to secure automatic promotion but a defeat to Bournemouth in their penultimate match saw them miss out.

They then were held to a draw away with Hull City which saw Huddersfield Town climb above them.

The Reds drew 1-1 with Hull with Keane Lewis-Potter scoring a 94th-minute equaliser to deny them three points.

However, their journey from the bottom of the table to 4th under Cooper has still been hugely impressive and they have another shot at promotion.

Forest are looking to return to the top flight for the first time since 1999.
