Swansea City News and Form – Swans to push for promotion this season?

Swansea had an indifferent first year back in the Championship last season. The Swans finished in tenth place on 65 points, nine points behind the play-off spots. Despite their low finish, the Welsh outfit lost just one of their last nine (five wins, three draws).

City were tough to beat on home soil last term, with only Bristol City, Ipswich Town, Norwich City, West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa winning in South Wales in the Championship. Meanwhile, they won six and drew two of their last eight home league games.

The Swans may have lost Potter in the summer, but they had a very successful pre-season campaign. Swansea won all six of their friendly matches, beating Mansfield Town, Crawley Town, Yeovil Town, Exeter City, Bristol Rovers and Atalanta respectively.

Swansea could lose striker Oli McBurnie to Sheffield United before the window shuts. The Premier League new boys have bid £20m for the Scotland international, which seems too good to turn down. The likes of Jordan Ayew, Wilfried Bony, Leroy Fer, Daniel James, Luciano Narsingh, Martin Olsson and Wayne Routledge have left the club. Meanwhile, Jake Bidwell and Ben Wilmot have come in.

City never really got going in the race for the top six last season, but reaching the play-offs will be number one priority this time around.

Hull City News and Form – Tough opening game for McCann?

Nigel Adkins took Hull City as far as he could last season, as the club finished in 13th place. Former Peterborough United and Doncaster Rovers boss Grant McCann took over at the KCOM Stadium in the summer. McCann guided Doncaster to the EFL League One play-offs last term, but will he be a hit at Hull?

The Tigers were decent on their own patch last season, winning 11 times. On the road, though, City secured just six league wins, losing 12 away games along the way. Overall, Hull won 17, drew 11 and lost 18 of their 46 Championship encounters.

Hull had a difficult pre-season, winning only one of their five friendlies. However, three of their other four ended in draws. Last time out, City drew 2-2 with McCann’s former club Doncaster at the Keepmoat Stadium.

After finishing in the bottom half of the table last term, can Hull improve and get themselves in the top six mix this season?

Swansea City v Hull City Predictions

Swansea City win: With this one taking place at the Liberty Stadium, the home team will be targeting all three points. I can see Cooper getting off to a winning start on Saturday, and there’s good value in bet365’s 5/2 for Swansea to win -1. Also, take a punt on the tempting odds of 11/5 for the Swans to be winning at half time and full time.
