Table-toppers Hull City host Shrewsbury Town at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday, as Grant McCann’s side continue their quest for an instant return to the Championship.
After some patchy form in October, Hull have found form again, and a win over struggling Shrewsbury this weekend would be a great help, as they also have a game in hand on many of their nearest challengers. The Tigers have taken 13 points from their last five matches, and scored 11 in that time, so Hull are expected to show their attacking prowess once again here, with three of their players (Josh Magennis, Mallik Wilks and Keane Lewis-Potter) all sitting in the top ten of League One’s scoring charts.
Shrewsbury come into the weekend level on points with bottom-placed Wigan Athletic, and are in a rotten run of form, with the team winless in ten league games, picking up just five points from a possible 30 over that period. The sacking of Sam Ricketts has caused no upturn in results, as they were heavily beaten 4-1 at home to Lincoln City in the week.
