On Saturday 2nd March 2019, Hull City will be hosting Birmingham at the KCOM Stadium. The action will kick-off from 15.00GMT. The two teams are almost level on points. Hull City has 47 points while Birmingham has 50.
The Tigers experienced a heavy toll of goals at Brentford where they lost 1-5 over the past weekend. However, they managed to overcome their loss in their mid-week fixture to defeat Millwall 2-1. Hull City is known to produce better results in front of their home fans and we don’t expect this match to be any none lesser. At number 11, they hope to keep their hopes of playoffs for Premier League running next season if they win this fixture. A loss for them will diminish their hopes completely. Therefore, they are going to give their all towards this fixture.
The Blues at number 8 is also eyeing the playoffs for the Premier League. This makes them a ferocious force as they travel. With their midweek win over Bristol City, they feel confident for the Saturday fixture. However, a win for them at KCOM Stadium is easier said than done. Their hopes for top 6 slot in the Championship is very high but that also depends on the outcome of their fixture against Hull City.
Both teams are under pressure to make it to the top six in championship table for a chance to enter the playoffs for elevation to Premier League side. With Hull City playing at home, they are confident of collecting at least a point. The travelers also know what the fixture has in store for them and hence are not going to go home empty-handed. We believe each team to defend their goalpost with all their might. We place our bet for the match to end in a draw.
