Hull manager Steve Bruce, would be brimming with confidence as his side gets ready to take on Sheffield Wednesday at home later this evening.
The former Manchester United player has a filly-fit squad to choose from following Tuesday night’s 1-0 win over Ipswich Town. However, the Englishman might consider making a few changes to the squad.
The Tigers are set to play their fifth game in less than a fortnight and Bruce knows that in the shape of Tom Huddlestone, Ahmed Elmohamady, Shaun Maloney, Chuba Akpom and Nick Powell, he has plenty of good options to choose from.
As things stand, Hull City are on top of the league standings and have won six of their last six league games with just one loss.
However, Sheffield Wednesday would be no pushovers and will be looking to showcase their skills away from home. Star striker, Fernando Forestieri, who sat out Tuesday’s 1-1 draw against QPR following his dismissal in last week’s defeat at Preston North End, returns to the starting XI.
Sam Hutchinson has also been included by Carlos Carvalhal after the midfielder missed the previous three games due to knee trouble.
The likes of Glenn Loovens, Lewis McGugan, Alex Lopez and Lucas Joao are also likely to be given a chance to feature against Steve Bruce’s side.
Hull City XI (probable): McGregor; Odubajo, Dawson, Davies, Robertson; Snodgrass, Livermore, Meyler, Clucas; Diame, Hernandez
Sheffield Wednesday XI (probable): Westwood; Hunt, Lees, Loovens, Pudil; Wallace, Lee, Hutchinson, Bannan; Forestieri, Hooper.
There are plenty of punters who will be piling into the price on the home win at 8/11, with Steve Bruce’s side now unbeaten in their last six at home and with Burnley breathing down their necks, another three points is vital tonight.
Sheffield Wednesday do pose plenty of threats however and should not be underestimated. Carlos Carvalhal’s side still hold the final playoff place in the Championship and would welcome taking any sort of result at the KC Stadium tonight.
The away win offers value at 5/1, however its a certainty that Steve Bruce and Hull will want to win their remaining home games.
Back them to take one step closer to the Premier League tonight.
