Another televised game is on the horizon for Hull City Football Club, which is the reason why this fixture is being forwarded to Friday evening. With City potentially facing two former Tigers in the process, it is time to assess the chances of Nigel Pearson’s side getting something at a ground that has been less than rewarding for the East Yorkshire side over recent times in this particular Roses battle…
When all is said and done, a worthwhile point was gleaned from Elland Road on Tuesday night. There can be no argument Hull City have struggled with form recently and have slowly slipped down the Championship table as a consequence. But, with some spirit and battling qualities on display at Leeds in midweek, to rescue a point with 10 men on the pitch, shows some character to give the club hope.
Indeed, a little more consistency in this department does suggest Hull City Football Club are more than capable of turning our fortunes around. The two previous matches before Leeds have seen battling qualities on show against Barnsley (a) and Scunthorpe (h) but we have to demonstrate the same desire for 90 minutes as opposed to just 45. This is what is hurting the club and prevents City getting a victory. Tuesday’s match with the aforementioned Leeds at least we did remain dogged.
That said, the injury front is still worrying from a Hull City point of view. Key members of the squad remain sidelined with Jimmy Bullard, Caleb Folan, Paul McShane all missing and affecting selection across all areas of the pitch. Yet, with skipper Ian Ashbee returning to the side at Elland Road and the form of Liam Rosenior continuing on an upward curve, the potential to take something from a Preston side under real pressure is a genuine possibility.
On to the hosts – Preston North End. Word on the street on the wrong side of the Penninesยูฟ่าเบท suggests that Preston boss Darren Ferguson is flirting with the boot, after a damaging last gasp home defeat to Barnsley. With one of the worst defences in the league, the Deepdale club have a penchant for leaking goals. But as we all know, with two ex-Tigers in Jon Parkin and Wayne Brown in their ranks, one them is bound to score against Hull City Football Club. It always happens! This is the unwritten law in the Football League rule book that you won’t see… but you surely know exists.
