West Bromwich Albion head to Hull City on Saturday lunchtime where they'll be hoping to record another big away win (ko 12.30pm).

The Baggies brushed Plymouth Argyle aside in midweek down in Devon thanks to second-half goals from Cedric Kipre, Mikey Johnston and Tom Fellows.

Hull City also boosted their top-six hopes on Tuesday, claiming an eye-catching triumph at Southampton. Strikes from Anass Zaroury and Fabio Carvalho earned the Tigers a third successive 2-1 victory.

Carlos Corberán's men, who sit one point above this weekend's hosts, claimed a 3-1 win in the reverse fixture back at The Hawthorns in early November, with Jed Wallace, Matty Phillips and Semi Ajayi all on target.

The opponents

The Tigers are enjoying a terrific season in the Sky Bet Championship and are on the hunt for a top-six finish.

Saturday's hosts have collected 54 points from their 33 matches played, winning five of the last six.

Tuesday's impressive 2-1 triumph against high-flying Southampton at St Mary's Stadium highlighted just how capable they are of achieving success this term, with the club targeting a return to the top flight after spending the last six years outside of the Premier League.

Hull made a number of important signings in the January transfer window, adding seven new faces to their squad including Premier League players Fabio Carvalho, Ryan Giles and Anass Zaroury on loan.

Former Tiger Liam Rosenior is the man leading their play-off charge. The 39-year-old was appointed in November 2022 and has turned the men from the MKM Stadium into one of the strongest outfits in the division.

He has a record of 24 wins, 21 draws and 20 defeats from his 65 games at the helm.

One to remember

Albion earned a 3-1 win at Hull City back in a Championship clash in January 2008.

Kevin Phillips opened the scoring as early as the second minute, before James Morrison went on to make it 2-0 half-an-hour later.

Richard Garcia pulled one back for the hosts with less than 20 minutes remaining and the Baggies then had Paul Robinson sent off.

However, despite their numerical disadvantage, Albion scored again to make sure of the points through Roman Bednar.

Did you know?

Albion have won seven of their last eight meetings with the Tigers, losing the other at the MKM Stadium last season.

Two of those seven victories have come away from The Hawthorns, with the Baggies' last triumph at Hull's home stadium arriving in March 2022 when Karlan Grant bagged a brace in a 2-0 win.

On the flip side, the away team has won this particular fixture just twice in the last 17 encounters.

Of those last 17 matches, the home team has been successful on 11 different occasions, with four draws also being played out.
