Blackpool vs Hull City Tips and Prediction
Michael Appleton could have been worried that he might have lost his job, as many others previously have at this level of football, at one point this season after putting together a run of only one victory in eight games in the Championship.
That isn’t the case anymore as the Seasiders have recovered to their previous form with five points from three games, avoiding losses to Sunderland, Watford, and Sheffield United.
After the unexpected victory over Watford, the team put forth an inspired performance against league-leading Sheffield United, overcoming a two-goal deficit to lead as the game approached its conclusion at Bramall Lane.
Oliver Norwood’s last-second goal gives the Blades a share of the victory, but Blackpool would have been content with a draw after going down to nine men with nine minutes still to play and eight minutes of added time.
Prior to home matches against Hull and neighborhood rival Preston North End, Blackpool is currently three points above the relegation zone. Appleton believes there is still time for Blackpool to climb the standings.
From Hull’s standpoint, the preseason optimism has completely vanished as a result of a manager change and just earning three out of a potential 21 points.
The Tigers leadership has to put an end to the ambiguity and define a clear strategy moving forward after firing Shota Arveladze, although it is unknown at this time whether caretaker boss Andy Dawson will continue in that role for this game.
Following consecutive losses to Huddersfield Town and Birmingham City, Hull now has the lowest goal differential in the Championship and is only one point above the bottom three teams.
Hull has only scored in one of their previous seven games and hasn’t kept a clean sheet since the second weekend of the season, when they defeated a Preston team that was then goal-shy.
We anticipate a competitive match in the North-West despite the fact that these two clubs seem to be going in separate directions.
But we can only support the home team to win all three games and keep a distance between themselves and the bottom three.
