Hull City vs Swansea Prediction
Hull City made a swift return to losing ways earlier this week after Blackburn slotted three unanswered goals past them on the road. The defeat was their fifth in six games, while their only other clash ended in a frustrating 1-1 draw.
To be frank, the hosts are yet to show any signs of conviction in their campaign. With just forty points in the bag, the home team are currently sitting fifteen on the ladder, seven points adrift of ninth-placed Swansea.
Meanwhile, the visitors have been erratic in their clashes as of late too. Their last game at home saw them held to a less than entertaining stalemate alongside QPR, prior to which, Derby took them down with a narrow 3-2 scorecard.
Be that as it may, the visitors have looked sharp in their outings this season. Impressively, they have salvaged at least a point in twelve of their previous fifteen trips on the road.
In sharp contrast, Hull have been at the losing end in each of their past four games here. Taking into account that they failed to get the better of this foe in the reverse fixture as well, Swansea are the front runners to come away with all three points in this one.
However, the guests have not secured the bragging rights in any of their last four visits to this stadium. Given that the visitors have also shared the spoils in seven of their outings so far, it will be safer to back a Draw no bet this week.
Furthermore, Swansea have not looked organized in their own defensive third, especially on the road. In fact, they have conceded a goal or more in eight of their previous ten outings in all competitions.
On the other hand, despite losing out on the win, Hull have consistently found the back of the net in each of their past two games here. Considering that their last two h2h meetings at this venue have also witnessed both teams get their names on the scoresheet together, expect neither side to keep a clean sheet intact come Friday.
