Hull City vs Sheffield Wednesday
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 14 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: KCOM Stadium (Hull).
The Tigers are on fire! Hull City bagged as many as nine goals in back-to-back demolishing victories over Queens Park Rangers and Burton Albion. These wins helped Nigel Adkins’ side avoid the relegation scrap climbing up ten points adrift of the drop zone line. They are now lock on points with Sheffield Wednesday ahead of Saturday’s clash with the Owls at KCOM Stadium.
Hull City went unbeaten in four consecutive league affairs. The streak includes draws with the likes of Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Jos Luhukay’s Sheffield will thus have a very challenging task to avoid a defeat against the in-form opposition here. To make things worse for the visitors, they have been on a poor run of form lately.
The Owls made it two defeats on the trot on Tuesday when they fell 4-2 to QPR away at Loftus Road Stadium.-Before this loss, they fell 0-1 at home to Fulham at home in a match which did not see them produce a single shot on goal at their Hillsborough. Luhukay will have to keep an eye on Kamil Grosicki who has been in good touch for Hull City recently. The Polish midfielder notched three goals in last two victories and he should be in position to take his league tally to double digits with a goal here.
Hull City vs Sheffield Wednesday: Head-to-head
The first clash between these opponents in this term of the Championship offered a four-goal thriller ending in a 2-2 draw.
Four of last five H2H encounters ended in a draw.
The Owls only won 3 of 16 head to head games against the Tigers.
Hull City vs Sheffield Wednesday: Prediction
Hull City are thriving in the final third these days and they are definitely huge form favourites to ease past Sheffield Wednesday here.
The home win should thus be a banker, while braver tipsters can even try with handicap bets. You can also try with Kamil Grosicki to score anytime at the odds of 2.90.
