Hull City face Leeds United at Elland Road on Tuesday evening, with the visitors looking to make it back-to-back victories.

The Tigers defeated Stoke City 2-1 on Saturday at the KCOM Stadium, turning around a 1-0 half-time deficit.

A quickfire double after the break from Jarrod Bowen secured three points for Hull, making it consecutive home wins for Grant McCann’s side.

The Tigers are currently three points behind the play-off places, and a victory on Tuesday evening would be a huge boost to their promotion hopes.

Leeds will prove stern opponents though, with Hull going into their trip to Elland Road as the outsiders on Tuesday evening.

A boost to the visitors has been their lack of fresh injury concerns though, with McCann likely to stick with a similar line-up to the side that defeated Stoke.

Hull have striker Josh Magennis available following suspension, as confirmed by BBC Sport, with the forward in contention for the clash with Leeds.

The Northern Ireland international has four goals to his name so far this season, however the 29-year-old has been dismissed on two occasions.

Hull defeated Leeds in their last meeting back in December 2018, and could secure back-to-back wins in this fixture for the first time since 2012.

Bowen scored a brace in the 2-0 victory, and following his two goals at the weekend the forward will be hoping to continue his fine run of form.

The Hull striker has been instrumental for the club this season, currently sat as the second top scorer in the division with 14 goals to his name.

Bowen has also made four assists this campaign, firing home five times in his last four outings.

Hull may be outsiders for their trip to Leeds in midweek, however only their opponents and league leaders West Brom have picked up more points in the last eight fixtures.

McCann’s men are in impressive form, and could cause a huge upset by bringing their opponents’ six-game winning run to an end on Tuesday night.
