Match Previews

Albion v Hull City match preview

19 April 2019

Albion will take on Hull City at The Hawthorns in their penultimate Sky Bet Championship home fixture of the season (ko 3pm).

The opposition 
 
Hull City are managed by Nigel Adkins, and under his guidance they are currently in 9th place in the table and have won 17, drawn 9 and lost 16 of their 42 games this season.
 
The top goalscorer for the Tigers is Jarrod Bowen, who has bagged 21 goals this season.
 
The Tigers signed former Albion defender Liam Ridgewell in January after he left Portland Timbers.
 
Last time out
 
Our last meeting with Hull ended in defeat for the Baggies, as the Tigers came out as 1-0 winners back in November, with Fraizer Campbell scoring the only goal of the game for the hosts in the first half.
 
The last time that the Tigers visited The Hawthorns, Albion ran out 3-1 winners. Hull had taken the lead through Robert Snodgrass, but Chris Brunt, Gareth McAuley and James Morrison all scored for the Baggies to secure a fourth consecutive home victory against Hull for Albion.
 
 
Stats
 
Albion
 
• The Baggies have won their last three home games in the Sky Bet Championship under Jimmy Shan, scoring 10 times.
• Albion's attacking duo of Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez have scored 42 goals - the best record of an attacking pairing in the league between them, scoring 21 times each.
• Of the last six games between Albion and the Tigers, the Throstles have won three times, drawn twice and lost once.
 
Opposition
 
• The Tigers have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven games.
• Hull City have won just one of their last nine games away from home.
• Jarrod Bowen scored in eight consecutive home games for the Tigers earlier this season, breaking a club record set by Bill Bradbury in the 1958-59 season.
 
From the archive
 
Here are the highlights from Albion’s 2-0 win against Hull in August 2006, courtesy of a John Hartson double.
 
Hartson’s first came just before the hour mark and he completed his brace at the death to secure the points.
 
 
Head to head 
 
Albion narrowly beat Hull in the head-to-head record.
 
Of the 55 matches that have been played, the Baggies have won 20 times, there have been 16 draws and Hull have won on 19 occasions.
 
Man in the middle 
 
The referee for Saturday’s match is Peter Bankes, and he’ll be assisted by Timothy Wood and Dean Treleaven - with Lee Collins as the fourth official.
 
Peter Bankes has refereed Albion once this season, officiating for the Baggies' 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace in the league cup last September.

Match Reports

Albion 3 Hull City 2

19 April 2019

Dwight Gayle took his tally for the season to 23 goals with a brace as Albion came from behind to see off Hull City 3-2 on Good Friday.

The in-form frontman converted an 85th-minute winner from substitute Jacob Murphy's cross to seal the spoils and make it seven goals in five games, coming hot on the heels of last weekend's hat-trick against Preston North End.

Gayle had earlier headed home Chris Brunt's corner just after the hour mark to level matters, with Tigers right-back Todd Kane having bagged a brace following the interval to put the visitors ahead.

Kieran Gibbs had sent the Baggies into a half-time lead with a superb volley from sub Tosin Adarabioyo's deep swinging cross, registering his fourth of the campaign. 

The victory extends Albion's winning home sequence to four matches under caretaker Head Coach Jimmy Shan, who takes his side to Reading on Easter Monday.

Rekeem Harper and Hal Robson-Kanu were both introduced to the starting XI from the 4-1 victory over Preston, with Jake Livermore and Jay Rodriguez rested.

And it was the hosts who largely dominated the opening quarter, although Jarrod Bowen went closest when he saw his early volley from distance fly narrowly off target.

With Ahmed Hegazi replaced by Adarabioyo after 18 minutes, it was the Tigers who threatened again as Kamil Grosicki's 20-yard strike flashed wide.

After a lull in proceedings, Stefan Johansen tested David Marshall with a low effort before the Baggies took the lead with half-time approaching.

Adarabioyo sent a sweeping first-time cross from the right channel towards the far side of the penalty area, where Gibbs was on hand to volley home an excellent finish into the bottom corner from 12 yards out.

Yet the visitors were level within three minutes of the restart courtesy of a stinging long-range angled drive from Kane which flew into the net.

Sam Johnstone got down well to deny Bowen in the 57th minute, but he was beaten just shortly afterwards as Kane claimed his second with a cross-come-shot which nestled in the top corner. 

However, City's lead lasted just a matter of minutes as Gayle was unmarked at the back post to head home Brunt's corner.

And, with an inspired Baggies pushing for a winner, Gayle was on hand to pounce from close range and convert Murphy's right-wing cross - securing all three points and all but sealing the club's Play-Off place.

Albion: Johnstone, Dawson, Bartley, Hegazi (Adarabioyo 18), Holgate, Johansen, Brunt (c), Harper (Phillips 62), Gibbs, Robson-Kanu (Murphy 71), Gayle.

Subs: Bond, Townsend, Livermore, Edwards.
