Hull City Preview – Can the Tigers roar back from Forest frustration?

Hull City have had a tough time on their Championship return after winning EFL League One last season. Grant McCann’s men are in 19th spot with 23 points after six wins, five draws and 12 defeats.

They are beginning to show signs of life. In November, City went on a four-game winning streak in the Championship, beating Barnsley, Birmingham City, Cardiff City and Millwall. They then drew with Reading and Bristol City before suffering a narrow loss at Nottingham Forest last time out.

Our betting prediction:
Ben Brereton to score first

(odds taken 1020 GMT, Friday 24 December)

Hull have looked good at the MKM Stadium in recent games, beating Birmingham and Millwall and drawing with Bristol City in the last three. Can they upset the league’s form side on Boxing Day?

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Mowbray’s Blue and Whites to secure sixth straight win?

Blackburn Rovers have caught many people by surprise with their stunning form. Rovers have gone from the cusp of the play-offs to genuine automatic promotion candidates in just two months.

Since losing 1-0 to Queens Park Rangers at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, Blackburn have gone on to win eight of the following ten. They crashed to a humbling 7-0 home defeat to Fulham in November but have taken 19 points from a possible 21 since.

Hull City vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Advice

When these two met in the reverse fixture at Ewood Park just a few months back, Blackburn picked up a comfortable 2-0 home win. Daniel Ayala’s goal on the hour mark put Rovers in front, with the prolific Ben Brereton doubling their advantage just minutes later.

The last five meetings have ended in wins for Blackburn, with Hull not beating the Lancashire side in league action since February 2016.


Key Facts – Hull City vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Tip

  • Hull have lost just one of their last seven
  • Blackburn have picked up eight wins from their past ten
  • Rovers have won five in a row against the Tigers


Hull have improved drastically of late, but last weekend’s 2-1 loss at Nottingham Forest was certainly a setback for McCann and his men.

Blackburn are on fire at the moment and are just three points behind leaders Fulham at the halfway stage. We fancy Rovers to make it six victories on the bounce with three points at the MKM Stadium on Sunday.

Blackburn have kept five clean sheets during their winning streak, and the bookies are offering 3/1 for the visitors to win to nil on Sunday. We also like the look of 11/4 for the away side to be winning at half time and full time.
