After his side’s defeat at the weekend, Adkins said: “We had three close games,” said Adkins. “Middlesbrough who we drew with, Leeds United on Tuesday, and Sheffield United.
“They are three teams who I think will get promoted this season. Three good sides.
“Why those three? The three teams all play different ways and it shows there’s different ways to play football and win games.
“Middlesbrough are well equipped in what they go and do.
“Leeds, whether they can keep everyone fit is the other side of it, but some of the football they play is really good.
“And Sheffield United are now well equipped. They have an excellent manager, an excellent group of players and are going to be able to deal with injuries.
“They have got a real passionate support who will get behind them.”
“Sheffield United have suffered over the past few years, but they are on the up now and it’s only a matter of time before they are back in the Premier League,” he said.
“If you flip it the other way, Hull City, having been in the Premier League, are now going through that transitional period where you have to get all your finances right, the stability of ownership right, and a group of players and team with a way of playing. That takes time and we are going through that transition now.
“Sheffield United have come through that and I think there’s only positive things going to come for the club in the future.”
Adkins’ side Hull City currently sit bottom of the Championship table with just 8 points after 12 games.
