Hull – Bristol City Predictions and Preview
- For the second game running, Aaron Connolly made an impact coming off the bench, as his brace led Hull to a 2-1 win over Blackburn last Saturday. Boss Liam Rosenior hailed “two absolutely top goals” and labelled his side a “group who don’t give up” after they battled from behind to leave Ewood park victorious. The Tigers will again need that resilience in search of just a second win over Bristol City since 2017 (D3, L6) as they seek a third consecutive Championship triumph for the first time since January 2022.
- That sole H2H victory came at the MKM Stadium last July when Hull also came back from a goal down to win 2-1, with the decisive strike coming deep into stoppage time. It was part of three straight wins to open their home league account last season, and the fans may not mind waiting for a late winner if there’s a repeat of that trio of victories this campaign!
- Bristol City are also making a habit of late goals themselves, with three of their four competitive matches this season witnessing the last goal arrive beyond the 80th minute. They were on the receiving end of one of those goals last Saturday in a 2-0 defeat to Birmingham City which left manager Nigel Pearson bemoaning his team’s “decision making”, as he insisted the Robins had “nobody to blame but themselves.”
- Defeat reminded Pearson’s side of the stark realities of the Championship following a last-gasp winner that led them to a 1-0 win at Millwall in their last away game, as they now aim for two consecutive away league wins – a feat they failed to achieve in the entirety of the last Championship campaign!
- Players to watch: Ozan Tufan scored a hat-trick in Hull’s last home league game and opened their scoring in the 2-1 H2H win here last season. Nahki Wells scored in the other H2H last season, notching Bristol City’s winner from the penalty spot in February. Yet that forms part of a fairly poor record of just five converted Championship penalties from 11 taken.
- Hot stat: Five of the last six Championship games featuring either of these sides stood level at the break.
