Match Preview | Hull City v Albion

Albion's red shirts hanging up in the dressing room

West Bromwich Albion head to Hull City on Friday night for their first Sky Bet Championship fixture in March (ko 8pm).

Carlos Corberán's men earned an impressive victory over high-flying Middlesbrough last weekend, their eighth victory in nine in all competitions at The Hawthorns.

The boss will be demanding his side improve away from home though, having seen them fall to four straight defeats on the road.

Hosts Hull City are 16th in the table and come into Friday's clash on a run of four games without a win. The Tigers were beaten 1-0 at Bristol City on Saturday afternoon in their most recent match. 

The MKM Stadium is the venue for Friday's encounter

Our opponents

The Tigers will want to earn their first win in five Sky Bet Championship matches when the Albion come to town this weekend.

City have drawn two and lost two in recent weeks, last claiming three points in a game at the beginning of February against Cardiff City at the MKM Stadium. 

Hull have been very strong at home though since the last few weeks of December and head into the clash with the Baggies unbeaten in six league fixtures in front of their own supporters (W2, D4).

Liam Rosenior, a man who played over 150 games for the club between 2010 and 2015, is the man in charge. The former defender was appointed in early November and has a record of five wins, five defeats and seven draws from his 17 matches in all competitions. 

The Tigers are currently 11 points clear of danger and will be keen to hunt down a spot in the top half of the table come the end of the campaign. 

The Tigers are 16th in the standings

From the Albion Archive 

Albion claimed three Sky Bet Championship points at Hull City last season courtesy of Karlan Grant's double.

The striker's neat finish gave the Baggies a 1-0 lead at the break before a confident spot-kick early in the second 45 sealed the victory.

You can watch the highlights below.

One for the stattos

The Baggies will be on the prowl for a sixth successive victory over the Tigers on Friday night. 

Albion won the reverse fixture 5-2 back at The Hawthorns on a thoroughly enjoyable August afternoon. 

Callum Elder's own goal kicked things off before efforts from John Swift, Darnell Furlong, Karlan Grant (p) and Dara O'Shea secured three comfortable points.

Colours for the road

The Baggies will wear their red third kit at the MKM Stadium on Friday night. 

The last time Albion donned their third kit was at Coventry City four days before Christmas.
