Stoke City vs Hull City
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 25th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Bet365 Stadium (Stoke on Trent).
Last years relegated Stoke City looks to be having similar faith with their current opponents from Hull City. The Tigers struggled following their relegation form the Premier League and now it looks as though the Potters are having the same faith.
Stoke despite the decent squad and the ambitions is still winless in the league. They have a strong side in terms of quality of this level but somehow they fail to bring the required results. Rowett’s boys need to wake up before it gets too late. They are already looking like they need a miracle to challenge for promotion which does not match their stature.
The Potters will want to forget Wednesday’s game. They got beaten at home with 0-3 by a side that was 2 division below them last year. This result has probably hurt both their fans and the player’s confidence.
Hull like last year are nowhere near the top side of the table. The team shows some familiar weaknesses from last season. Easy conceding of goals and inability to keep their opposition away from their goal.
Midweek The Tigers got their first victory of the season. It came in a dramatic fashion against Rotherham. Hull made a complete turnaround from 1-0 down to 1-3 just to concede again and shiver until the end.
Stoke City vs Hull City: Head-to-head
- Hull have won all their points this season away from home

Stoke City vs Hull City: Predictions
These sides are both being involved in some entertaining fixtures so far. We have a promise for goals and lets home the sides keep it. Otherwise in terms of final outcome this game is tricky. Both sides are out of form but may burst at any given time and get a victory. Stoke have shown more weaknesses and home so we are going for the upset here.
