Hull City v Albion match preview

3 November 2018

ALBION travel up to the KCOM Stadium this Saturday to take on Hull City (ko 3pm).

The opposition 

Hull currently sit 23rd in the Sky Bet Championship on 12 points, having won three, drawn three and lost nine of their opening 15 fixtures.

They are managed by former Southampton, Reading and Sheffield United boss Nigel Adkins, who took over in December 2017 following the departure of Leonid Slutsky and guided the Club to an 18th placed finish last season.

The Tigers had a busy summer, bringing in the likes of Eric Lichaj, David Milinkovic, Reece Burke, Jordy de Wijs and George Long. They did, however, also see a number of players leave - such as Michael Dawson, Abel Hernandez, Seb Larsson, Allan McGregor and David Meyler.

Last time out

The most recent meeting between the sides was a 3-1 Premier League win for Albion at The Hawthorns back in January 2017.

Second-half goals from Chris Brunt, Gareth McAuley and James Morrison overturned Robert Snodgrass’ early strike to hand the Baggies all three points.
