Hull – West Brom Prediction and Preview

  • After an impressive 2-1 midweek win at automatic promotion-chasing Southampton, Hull boss Liam Rosenior refused to be drawn into any talk over what his side could achieve. While it remains to be seen where his surprise promotion charges will end up, there’s no doubting that those three points on the South Coast have seen them take back control in their own quest to make the cut for the Championship play-offs.
  • That was the third consecutive match in which the Tigers were 2-1 victors, making it eight games in a row they’ve seen settled by a one-goal margin (W5, L3 across all competitions). Consistency is always key in the play-off race, and City could certainly do with a bit more on home soil, having alternated between wins and defeats in their last eight home league matches, though that’s a pattern Roseior will want to see continue for at least one more week after they lost to Swansea last time out at the MKM Stadium.
  • Positively, Hull have never lost consecutive home games under Rosenior, but that record comes under serious threat against West Brom, who have won seven of the last eight league H2Hs (L1) between the pair. Added to that, Baggies boss Carlos Corberán has won three of his four personal H2Hs against City (L1), only averaging more points per game against two other English sides where he’s faced a club more than once.
  • Albion begin this round of games above the Tigers, a point and a place better off despite having scored a goal less. Notably, it’s been the Baggies’ defensive efforts which have put them in pole position for a play-off place, as they’ve conceded the fewest of any side outside the current top two, and expect a strong second-half showing from them, given 14 of their 21 away league goals this term have arrived after the break.
  • Key battle: Veteran Hull striker Billy Sharp has never drawn a game against the Baggies (W6, L4), with three goals to his name against them, though he still hasn’t opened his Tigers account yet. Alex Palmer’s 15 clean sheets for West Brom are a joint-league high, and in four career games, he’s never conceded more than once against Hull.
  • Hot stat: Hull haven’t won consecutive home games against West Brom since a run of four between 1974 and 1987, but could break that duck this weekend.
