Form and Tactical Analysis

Hull City

Hull’s season so far is marked with inconsistency. The long term injury of Abel Hernandez hit them hard and they netted some bad results. They found their game again in recent weeks with 2 victories and a draw. Scored 6 against Birmingham which showed they are improving up front. The team still needs more stability at the back with a single clean sheet in 8 games.

Hull plays in a 4-2-3-1 formation in recent weeks with Nouha Dicko leading the line. The team tries to control the flow of the game and create scoring chances.

Nottingham Forest

Nottingham are performing better than last season. The team has a decent home record but poorer away. 2 victories and 4 defeats away from home show that Forest will be relying mainly on home games. Despite that the team has failed to find the net in just a single game on the road. The team hasn’t yet finished in a draw having 6 victories and 7 defeats.

Nottingham usually plays with a lone striker formations. Still when at home against certain teams Nottingham plays with second striker next to Daryl Murphy.

Hull vs Nottingham: Predictions

Most stats and form point towards a scoring game. Both teams to score looks like a likely option. Nottingham are scoring on the road while Hull have kept just a single clean sheets at home since the start of the season.
