Opposing View - Hull City
Vital Hull editor Matt gives us the lowdown on his side...



What were your hopes and fears for the season?


The season started slowly but there had been a summer expectation that the side should at least be competing for a Play-Off place. Despite the tight nature of the Championship, it is starting to look like this should happen.

What do you make of your start to the campaign?

A seven game unbeaten run had seen us move into the Play-Offs. Although we're 12th, we're only three points behind 2nd which shows how tight the league is. We have a game in hand and have progressed well after a stuttering start,

You've got a number of ex-Manchester youngsters, how have they done?

They have played with each other before and have settled into the team very well. James Chester appears to be the standout performer, closely followed by the impressive Robbie Brady. We'll soon have Cameron Stewart back in contention too which will further strengthen the team.

Nigel Pearson added two real experienced campaigners to the squad this summer in Dele Adebola and Paul McKenna, how important are they in a young squad?

McKenna has provided important experience to a young midfield. Adebola started the opening game of the season but appears to have fallen out of favour and is now a common substitute to be called upon if City need to change their style of play.

Are you worried by the lack of goals?

I would be more worried if we weren't creating the chances. While 9 goals in 11 games wont get us anywhere near promotion, we are creating plenty of chances each match and I am sure the goals will come. If we can find a 'fox in the box' in the January transfer market, we could be a team to be reckoned with,

Who's the key man we should be watching out for on Saturday?

Robert Koren has impressed when played in a central role recently. Additionally, Robbie Brady will provide our attacking threat from out wide and should be closely watched.

Match Prediction?

3-0 City

An optimistic prediction for a side who's only scored three times as many goals as that all season...
