Vital Reading Season Preview – Hull
Club – Hull City
Founded – 1904
Nickname – The Tigers
Ground – KC Stadium (Capacity: 25,586)
Manager – Nigel Pearson
When we face each other? – Sat 27th August (A) Sat 21st January (H)
Last Season Finish – 11th – Championship
Season Preview – Similarly to Doncaster, Hull have had a fantastic surge in the past 10 years, coming from League Two and got promoted to the Championship in 2005.
They then got promoted to the Premier League in the 2008 play-off final beating Bristol City and despite favourites to go down, survived and finished in 17th. They did however get relegated the following season.
Despite having attacking flair with the likes of Matty Fryatt, Aaron McLean and Jay Simpson, I believe they do not have enough defensive ability to help them have a play-off push.
My Prediction – 13th
