Hull City Preview – Can the Tigers keep up 100% record at home?

Shota Arveladze’s Hull City have made a solid enough start to their Championship campaign. They have beaten Bristol City and Norwich City at the MKM Stadium and have picked up good away draws at Preston North End and Burnley.

However, the Tigers were brought back down to earth with a humbling loss at West Bromwich Albion last time out. Arveladze’s troops were second best throughout and were easily beaten 5-2 at The Hawthorns.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1218 GMT, Friday 26 August)

After impressive home wins over Bristol City and Norwich, can Hull keep up their 100% record at the MKM Stadium by seeing off the Sky Blues this Saturday? The hosts will fancy their chances on their own patch.

Coventry City Preview – Can the Sky Blues return with a positive result?

It has been a frustrating start to the season for Mark Robins and his Coventry City side. Problems with the Coventry Building Society Arena pitch has halted their momentum, as their three scheduled home matches have been called off for safety reasons.

Therefore, Coventry have played just two Championship games this season, both away from home. On matchday one, the Sky Blues drew 1-1 with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, with Viktor Gyokeres rescuing a late point. Then two weeks ago, City lost 3-2 to Millwall in a thriller at The Den.

When these two sides last met back in March last season, Hull picked up a 2-0 win at CBS Arena. First-half goals from Richard Smallwood and Ryan Longman did the damage in that one. The reverse game at the MKM Stadium in October 2021 went Coventry’s way, with an early Matt Godden goal giving the Sky Blues a narrow 1-0 win.


Key Facts – Hull City vs Coventry City Betting Tip

  • Hull have suffered just one league loss so far
  • This will only be Coventry’s third league game of the season

On paper, Hull and Coventry seem pretty evenly matched. The bookies are having a tough time splitting the two, and we can see the duo cancelling each other out at the MKM Stadium. The draw and under 2.5 goals at 3/1 has caught the eye.

Viktor Gyokeres scored Coventry’s first goal of the season with a stunning equaliser at the Stadium of Light on the opening weekend. The Swedish striker is priced at 7/4 to net anytime in this one.
