Albion v Hull City match preview

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.
• 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.
• 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.
