West Brom vs Hull City (By: Joey)
West Brom take on Hull City at the Hawthorns hoping to profit from any slipups by Sheffield United in the third place. At the same time, West Brom also have to be aware of the threat from Aston Villa for the fourth place. The Baggies only hold a four-point advantage over Villa, who have better momentum coming into the last four games. Hull City still have hope of qualifying for the play-offs with the team now just five points behind the top six.
West Brom were able to come up with a strong 4-1 success over Preston to overcome sequence of back-to-back losses in away matches. This big win was the first for West Brom since April began.
Hull City’s four-game unbeaten sequence and three-game winning sequence all came crashing following a 1-0 loss against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium. The defeat is a major blow to hopes of finishing the play-offs.
The previous meeting between Hull and West Brom produced a 1-0 win for the Tigers at the KCOM Stadium. Hull, though, have a very poor record at the Hawthorns, where they lost 3-1 in the recent visit. My betting tips and predictions would go with a victory for West Brom.
West Brom were quite imperious in the recent win over Preston and they have a great opportunity to repeat the same in the upcoming game against Hull. Hull City’s last victory at the Hawthorns was in 2008 when both teams were in the Premier League. In recent times, West Brom have been able to pick up three successive wins over Hull City. There is also a strong need for West Brom to maintain momentum with the play-offs fast approaching. Meanwhile, Hull City need to get three points in order to retain any hope of promotion, but away form continues to remain as their Achilles heel. My preview would pick a victory for West Brom.
