Hull City vs Brentford Prediction
Hull miserably admitted a third straight defeat in their most recent clash with Huddersfield after the latter posted a 2-1 scorecard at the end of the ninety minutes. Despite trailing by a goal, at the break, in that matchup, the hosts found an equalizing goal six minutes past the hour mark and looked almost certain to salvage a point.
However, the home team were punished by their counterparts who bagged the winning goal in the dying minutes of stoppage time. With just one win from their past four fixtures in the Championship, Hull have slipped to the thirteenth spot on the ladder.
Meanwhile, Brentford have been coping a lot better in their respective campaign. The visitors are currently one of the top five sides in the cluster and have been at the losing end just once in their past four matchups.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests are unbeaten in their past two outings on the trot. In sharp contrast, Hull have not had a taste of success at home since their 3-0 win over Birmingham back in December.
Moreover, four of the last seven defeats for Hull here have come against sides presently residing in the top ten. As such, the tag of favorites most certainly goes to Brentford in this one.
However, the visitors have not picked up a win against this foe on the road for well over a decade. Taking into account that both teams also shared the spoils in the reverse fixture of this matchup, it will be safer to back a draw no bet this weekend.
Furthermore, twenty-two of the forty-one goals that Hull have scored so far have come from their clashes on home soil. On the other hand, Brentford have not been shy in getting their names on the scoresheet either. Impressively, they have netted fifteen times from their last nine outings alone.
Considering that four of the past six games at this stadium have also featured a total of three goals or more on the final scorecards, a high scoring affair is certainly in the reckoning come Saturday.
