Hull City Prediction

Hull City will be keen to return to winning ways following last weekend’s FA Cup exit to fellow Championship outfit Millwall, and they return to their KCOM Stadium looking to extend their unbeaten run in the Championship to nine league matches.

It’s been a dramatic and excellent turnaround in fortunes for The Tigers under manager Nigel Adkins who has guided his side to five wins on the trot prior to Saturday afternoon’s clash against Sheffield Wednesday with wins against Brentford, Swansea City, Preston North End, league leaders Leeds United and a 6-0 demolition of Bolton Wanderers.

This welcome eight match sequence without defeat have seen Hull lift themselves out of the relegation zone and up into 13th place where they are now separated by just seven points from the play-off pack.

Hull’s home record now stands at an improved 5-3-5 8/13 which includes winning their last three on the trot as well as recording 5 clean sheets from their 13 home matches to date. At the other end, midfielder Irvine (5 goals) along with forwards Bowen (11 goals), Campbell (8 goals) and Grosicki (4 goals) have provided the firepower for The Tigers.

Sheffield Wednesday Prediction

Sheffield Wednesday have also re-discovered some long-lost form in recent matches following the departure of former Dutch manager Jos Luhukay after a dismal period which saw The Owls register just one win from 10 matches in all competitions.

Following Luhukay’s departure, caretaker-manager Lee Bullen guided Sheffield Wednesday to wins over Preston North End and Middlesbrough as well as picking up valuable points against west midlands clubs, West Brom and Birmingham City.

Bullen has since been replaced at the helm by the recent full-time appointment of Steve Agnew and his first game in charge ended in a 0-0 draw at home with League One side Luton Town in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.

This trip to face in-form Hull City will therefore be Agnew’s first test in the Championship with his new side, and the visitors have registered just one away win from their last seven matches amidst an overall away record of 4-2-7 15/23.

In addition, The Owls have kept just two clean sheets on their travels so far this season so this could open the door for Hull to further add to their points tally in this one.

Betting Tips Verdict

Hull have been in blistering form but Sheffield Wednesday have also staged a mini revival after Luhukay’s departure – I’ll back the hosts with the draw no bet option here.
