Recent respective form guides

Hull City's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While The Tigers have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Cardiff City's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the Bluebirds have hit 5 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Hull City are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola Championship with a return of just 17 points from their 22 games thus far. Cardiff City are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 39 points from 22 games.
