West Bromwich Albion will be targeting a third win on the bounce when Hull City visit The Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon (ko 3pm).

Carlos Corberán's side have picked up consecutive 2-0 triumphs over QPR and Coventry City, results which mean they head into the weekend's encounter sat inside the top six of the Sky Bet Championship.

Visitors Hull City aren't far behind the Baggies. Only goal difference keeps them outside the play-off positions having collected the same number of points as Albion from their first 14 games (23).

The Tigers have also won their last two matches, keeping clean sheets in the process against Birmingham City and Preston North End.

The Baggies secured three points against QPR last time out in B71

The opponents

The Tigers have made an eye-catching start to the 2023/24 campaign and are sat just outside the play-off positions on goal difference going into matchweek 15 in the Sky Bet Championship.

Hull have collected 23 points from 14 their games, winning six, drawing five and losing just three.

They head to The Hawthorns having claimed consecutive victories and consecutive clean sheets in fixtures away at Birmingham City (2-0) and at home to Bristol City (1-0).

Saturday's guests have earned a number of really impressive results so far this term, most notably a 1-0 triumph at runaway leaders Leicester City.

Former player Liam Rosenior is the boss. He'll celebrate his one-year anniversary the day before the Tigers come to town and boasts a strong record of just 11 defeats from his 44 matches in charge. 

Rosenior, who also represented Fulham, Reading, Ipswich and Brighton, made over 150 appearances for Hull between 2010 and 2015. The 39-year-old is a popular figure at the MKM Stadium and has made the locals dream of a return to the top flight for the first time since 2017. 

Hull City will be hoping to secure a spot in the top six this season

One to remember

The Baggies beat Saturday's visitors 5-2 at The Hawthorns last season in the middle of August. 

Callum Elder (OG), John Swift, Darnell Furlong, Karlan Grant and Dara O'Shea were all on target for the hosts, with Colombian striker Oscar Estupinan bagging a brace for the Tigers.

Supporters can watch all seven goals from that afternoon below.
