Relegation threatened Hull City travel to the Luton Town Football club to face off against fellow relegation candidates Luton Town in a bottom of the table Championship clash on Saturday afternoon.
Both sides are in level on points with 45 from 44 games and victory for either side could be sufficient to take them out of the relegation zone. If the Tigers win the game, they will bolster their chances of remaining in the Championship next season. If they lose, it will be very likely that they will be playing League One football next season.
Grant McCann’s men might have lost their last game 8-0 against Wigan Athletic and even though they have lost 14 out of their last 18 games, they will need to approach the game with positivity. On paper, they are certainly capable of beating Luton.
Hull have no fresh injury concerns heading into the game, according to the Hull Daily Mail. The report added that on-loan midfielder Herbie Kane is the only definite absentee for the Tigers due to a hamstring injury. There could be heavy changes to the side and a change of formation following the defeat to Wigan. Tom Eaves, Kevin Stewart, Ryan Tafazolli and Keane Lewis-Potter were all players who were substituted in during that game and a few of them could be set to start against Luton.
The reverse fixture which was played in September ended in a convincing 3-0 victory for Hull following a goal from Kamil Grosicki and a brace from Kevin Stewart.
