Hull City vs Leeds United Prediction 30 January 2018

Match date: 

On January 31 2018 at 19:45 in the upcoming game of the 29th game week of the English Football League Championship at the KCOM Stadium in Hull the local Hull City are playing against Leeds United.

The Tigers are obviously failing in the current season. They are now almost in the relegation zone and they only outpace the black Cats due to a better goal difference. There are a few reasons why their results were this horrible in the first half of the season. Their players had a lot of players injured for various reasons. There were times when they were missing nine main squad footballers and this couldn’t help influencing the results of the team. Hull City had their managed replaced not long ago and they have already played eight games with the new one on the head. In those matches they won once, drew three times and lost four times. We must admit that they lost only in their away matches for some reason. Besides, Hull City won their two matches in the national cup where they will be going to play the next stage matches against Wigan Athletic.

As for Leeds, they have spent most of the first half of the season in the promotion play-offs zone and yet their horrible results they showed in January made them go far down below the top six. At the moment Leeds are on the 8th position in the standings 5 points below the promotion zone. In their latest five official matches Leeds lost four times and drew once. They actually have a lot of problems with discipline, as it seems to us. They had their players sent-off in three latest games in a row.

Both teams have some problems with the squads because of injuries or disqualifications. Anyway, it seems to us that Hull City will be more motivated as they will probably go down to the relegation zone in case they lose this time. We think that the hosts will manage to win this time.
