Hull City Preview – Can the Tigers avoid a fourth straight league loss?

Hull City started life back in the Championship with a stunning victory at Preston North End on the opening weekend. The Tigers caught the Lilywhites cold at Deepdale, with Keane Lewis-Potter, Richard Smallwood, Josh Magennis and Andy Cannon getting the goals in the 4-1 romp.

Since that superb win at Preston, though, Hull have crashed to four league and cup losses on the spin. They were beaten at home by Wigan Athletic in the EFL Cup on 10th August. Hull then lost successive Championship matches to Queens Park Rangers, Derby County and Fulham, scoring none and conceding six.

Staying in the Championship will be priority for the Tigers, but the last three games have proved just how difficult that will be. Can they bounce back with a big three points this weekend?

Bournemouth Preview – Cherries to return to winning ways?

Bournemouth are unbeaten in four in the Championship under new boss Scott Parker. However, the Cherries did fall to humbling 6-0 loss to Premier League new noys Norwich City in the second round of the EFL Cup in midweek.

Last time out in the Championship, Bournemouth let a 2-0 lead slip to draw 2-2 at home with Blackpool. They took their eye off the ball for three minutes in the second half and were punished by last season’s League One play-off winners.
