Hull City have really got into their stride right now and they head into their weekend clash with Sheffield Wednesday on the back of a five-game winning run in the Championship, a far cry from earlier in the campaign when the Tigers looked set to become embroiled in a relegation battle in the latter stages of the campaign. Nigel Adkins’ men have hauled themselves away from the drop zone and up to 13th in the league table thanks to an excellent run which has seen them win six and draw two of their last eight Championship matches, this streak including fine wins over QPR (2-3), Leeds United (0-2) and Bolton Wanderers (6-0). Indeed the Tigers have now taken points off three of the top-four sides in the division and we don’t envisage them having too many problems keeping their winning league run going when they clash with Sheffield Wednesday at the KCOM Stadium this weekend, the bookmakers giving away free bets on Hull City v Sheffield Wednesday.
As for the visiting Owls, they were unable to build upon their 1-0 wins over both Preston North End and Middlesbrough and they head into this match on the back of three consecutive draws, the latest being against League One high-flyers Luton Town in the FA Cup last weekend. The South Yorkshire outfit remain firmly in the bottom half of the Championship table as things stand and given that weekend opponents Hull City appear tp have found top-gear in recent weeks, we’ll be siding with the home side to edge their way to three points thus extending their unbeaten run to nine league games, William Hill Bookmakers going 21/20 on Hull City to win.
