Hull City’s search for their first Championship win since New Year’s will continue on Friday when they face Swansea City at the KCOM Stadium. Hull suffered a 3-0 defeat at Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday, whilst Swansea come from a goalless draw at home to QPR.
The Tigers have now lost five of their last six in the Championship which has pushed them down to 15th in the table. They also have promotion hopefuls Preston North End and Leeds United in two of their next three matches which will be somewhat concerning to their supporters. However Hull City have won five of their last seven matches against Swansea in all competitions.
Swansea’s hopes hope a top six finish took a hit following a four game winless run in the Championship. Their last victory was against Wigan Athletic back on January 18th.
Hull City Championship form: LLLLDL
Swansea Championship form: DWLDLD
Hull’s injury list is pretty substantial as James Scott, Josh Bowler, Martin Samuelson, Matthew Pennington, Jordy de Wijs, Kevin Stewart, Eric Lichaj, Herbie Kane and Jon Toral are all unavailable to play.
Whilst Swansea have George Byers out for the rest of the season after an ankle injury was picked up against Derby County last week.
