Hull City vs Swansea City

The Championship season is almost halfway through with 22 games played and matchday 23 for Hull City will see them welcome Swansea City to their KCOM Stadium. The hosts have dominated this meeting between the sides over the last few years with them taking the last four consecutive victories. However, this season has not been kind to the Tigers so we may see the Swans take the victory.

Hull City have had a tough first half of the season and now 22 games deep they find themselves down in 17th – with 24 points just five clear of the bottom three sides. However, things have taken a turn for the better for Nigel Adkins and his side with them losing just one of their last eight fixtures. Over the course of these eight games, the Tigers have secured 15 points, which include an impressive 1-0 win against West Brom and a 0-0 draw against Norwich City. This spur of good form alongside playing at home means Hull City arrive as the favourites to take the three points and can be backed with SkyBet at 6/4.

At the beginning of the season, Hull’s defence had been incredibly leaky and they had managed to keep just one clean sheet in their first 14 games. However, in their last eight games, they have been much stronger defensively, keeping four clean sheets. The Tigers have found their form in front of goal recently too, with them bagging seven goals in their last three fixtures. Fraizer Campbell has eight goals this season and has scored six in his last eight games, you can back the forward to score anytime against Swansea at 7/4 with SkyBet.

Graham Potter’s Swansea City side finds themselves up in ninth place after 22 games, with 32 points on their record, even with the lack of consistency in their performances this season. The Swans had been struggling throughout the end of November where they had suffered three consecutive losses against sides Norwich City, West Brom and Derby County. However, a change in form has seen them now win their last two games against Brentford and most recently Sheffield Wednesday – who they beat 2-1. You can back the Welsh side to secure their third consecutive win at Bet365 at the price of 9/5.

The Swans are the second-lowest scoring side amongst the top 12 sides in the league with just 27 goals on their record, but a defence that has conceded just 24 goals has helped them secure the needed points. With that said, the last clean sheet Swansea kept was six games ago and since then have conceded eleven goals in five games. Over the last five games, Swansea have scored and been scored against in each fixture and you can back both teams to score on Saturday at Bet365 at 8/11.
