Sunderland vs Hull City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture will have important implications at the bottom end of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Sunderland suffered their second successive league defeat as they went down 4-0 in Wales to Cardiff last time out. They were in the game at half-time but a nightmare ten minutes followed as they conceded twice and had a player sent-off in Dider Ndong.

Hull were at home in their last league game as they battled out a goalless draw with Reading in front of their own fans. The Tigers can consider themselves unlucky when looking at the expected goals data.

The reverse fixture came in mid-September at the KC Stadium and it ended in a 1-1 draw on that occasion. James Vaughan gave the Wearsiders the lead but eight minutes from time David Meyler levelled to secure a point for the Humberside outfit.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Sunderland are a mess but then Hull are only marginally better and given they home advantage I am surprised to see them as outsiders. I would use the cover of the game ending all-square in the draw no bet to side with the hosts.

Given the Black Cats have scored just one in their last four while five of the last six for the Tigers have gone under 1.5 goals then this market looks worth a small interest.

Sunderland Preview

It is three defeats in four league games for the Black Cats and just four points from their last five fixtures. Their next two are against sides in the bottom five (the other is Birmingham away) and these matches are vital to getting themselves off the bottom of the table.

At the Stadium of Light, they have won just once all season though this came in the last six along with three draws. Their last three at their own ground have been low scoring with just four netted in total.

A lack of goals is a real issue for Sunderland with just one netted in their last four and three in their last seven. They are struggling to keep them out at the other end with nine conceded in their last four.

Sunderland Team News

Didier Ndong will miss the game through suspension while Aiden McGeady (unknown) and Paddy McNair (groin) are doubts. Jonny Williams (shoulder), Darron Gibson (groin) and Laime Kone (knee) are a few weeks away from a return while Duncan Watmore (knee) is out for the season.

Hull City Preview

It is now six league games without a victory for the Tigers who have picked up just three points in these ties. They sit in 20th place just three points above their opponents here and one above the relegation zone.

Away from the KC Stadium, they are six without a win and have lost each of their last three by the same 1-0 scoreline. They have scored just nine goals on the road this season and just two in the last five.

Just one of the last six Hull have played have gone over 1.5 goals. The Humberside outfit would be as high as ninth if the league was decided on scores after 45 minutes.

Hull City Team News

Will Keane (cruciate), Kami Grosicki (ankle), Stephen Kingsley (groin), Abel Hernandez (Achilles) and Ondrej Mazuch (hamstring) are doubts. Ryan Mason (skull fracture), Moses Odubajo and James Weir (both knee) are long-term absentees.
