League One newcomers Hull City got off to the perfect start in their quest for redemption following their relegation from the second tier of English football last season. Goals at the beginning and the end of the game against Gillingham last weekend earned Grant McCann’s side their first league victory on the road since New Year’s Day.
With some level of confidence restored, the Tigers also managed to sweep aside last season’s Championship winners Leeds in the EFL Cup in midweek, eventually knocking Marcelo Bielsa’s side out on penalties.
After coronavirus forced the National League to finish the League Two season early, Hull City’s opponents Crewe gained promotion to League One after a four-year absence, but a 2-0 defeat on the opening day to Charlton Athletic was a bitter pill to swallow having missed several big chances.
Although we don’t expect this to be a goal-fest, Hull do possess more quality than Crewe and two wins in a row is likely to have given them a huge boost going into Saturday’s fixture. Therefore, we’ve gone for Hull to win 1-0, 2-0, or 2-1 at 9/4 - click here to claim this one.
