West Bromwich Albion will be targeting an instant response to Saturday’s defeat at Fulham when Hull City come to town on Wednesday night (ko 8pm).

Visitors Hull are back in the second tier following promotion from League One last season, coming up as champions having finished two points above Peterborough United.
This week’s guests have had a difficult start to life back in the Championship, picking up 9 points from their 15 matches, form which will see them arrive at The Hawthorns occupying one of the bottom three spots in the division.

Hull City will be hoping to halt a run of four consecutive Sky Bet Championship defeats at The Hawthorns on Wednesday.
The Tigers have lost out by one-goal margins in their last three games, losing to Coventry, Luton and Peterborough, leaving them on nine points from their first 15 games.
Last season’s Sky Bet League One champions finished bottom of the Championship in 2019/20 and boss Grant McCann will be desperate to keep his side in the second tier this term.
The former Northern Ireland international, who played with Chris Brunt and Gareth McAuley at Windsor Park, was appointed in June 2019 and has been both relegated and promoted in his two years at the club.
McCann featured heavily for Cheltenham Town, Scunthorpe United and Peterborough United during his playing days, before switching to the dugout in 2015. He managed both Posh and Doncaster Rovers previous to his role at Hull, with whom he has won 47, drawn 27 and lost 49 of his 123 matches in charge.
Gareth McAuley, Chris Brunt and James Morrison were all on target for Albion in a 3-1 win over Hull City in January, 2017.
The Tigers went ahead in the first half thanks to a Robert Snodgrass goal, but the Baggies fought back to claim three Premier League points at The Hawthorns.
