Hull City Preview – Can the Tigers roar to a much-needed three points?

Hull City made a blistering start to their season, walloping Preston North End away from home in game one. The League One champions were quick out of the blocks, with goals from Keane Lewis-Potter, Richard Smallwood, Josh Magennis and Andy Cannon giving the Tigers a handsome 4-1 victory at Deepdale.

However, to say things have gone downhill from then on would be an understatement. No team in the Championship have picked up fewer points since, as the Tigers have amassed just three from a possible 27. City have lost six and drawn three of their past nine in the league.

Our betting prediction:
Draw at half time & full time

(odds taken 1222 GMT, Friday 1 October)

After a trio of poor defeats, Hull at least stopped the rot in their last fixture, drawing 1-1 at home with Blackpool. The East Yorkshire club could certainly do with maximum points from this one.

Middlesbrough Preview – Can Boro make it back-to-back wins?

Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough have made a steady enough start to their Championship season. After ten games played, Boro have picked up three wins, drawn three times and suffered four losses. Along the way, they have scored 11 and shipped 11.

After disappointing defeats to Blackpool and Reading, Middlesbrough bounced back with an important three points in midweek. Against his former club Sheffield United, Warnock guided Boro to a 2-0 home win, with Duncan Watmore and Paddy McNair getting the goals.
