Hull City vs Stoke City Prediction
The hosts have lost just once in their last four matches on the road. Furthermore, their only loss to teams in the bottom six of the league table was against Derby County.
Whereas their opponents’ only win against a team within the top ten positions in the league came in October.
Considering the above the hosts are unlikely to gain anything out of this fixture.
None of the visitor’s previous four fixtures on the road had witnessed over two goals.
Furthermore, the hosts are not providing much threat while going forward as they have just scored 1.20 goals per game on average this season. Additionally, with the away defense conceding just about a goal per game a high scoring affair is unlikely.
