Tip Reasoning

  • Hull have scored just 6 goals in 9 away games this season, while Cardiff have only netted 7 in 9 in front of their own fans.
  • Both teams have scored in just 4 of Hull’s 18 Championship matches, and in none of their last 5.
  • Only 1 of the sides’ last 7 head-to-head meetings have seen both teams net.

Bluebirds’ Much-Needed New Manager Bounce

Steve Morison was given a permanent deal as Cardiff City manager during the international break, after overseeing a much-needed turnaround during his 3 games as caretaker boss. Morison has now claimed 2 wins and a draw in his 4 matches in the dugout, prior to which the Bluebirds had been in freefall. A dismal run of 8 consecutive losses, in which Cardiff only scored once, ended Mick McCarthy’s tenure, but Morrison has stopped the rot for the time being.

Their visitors on Wednesday, Hull City, are witnessing a miniature revival of their own after claiming successive 2-0 wins over Barnsley and Birmingham. The Tigers had lost 5 on the spin beforehand, only finding the net once during that run, in a 2-1 loss to fellow strugglers Peterborough.

Dull Affair Likely in Wales?

If its entertainment you’re after on Wednesday night, the Welsh capital probably shouldn’t be your first port of call; Cardiff rank amongst the league’s worst attacking outfits at home, scoring just 7 in 9, while Hull have only managed 6 in 9 away trips. Remarkably, before they won their last away match, at Barnsley, Hull had not scored an away goal since the opening day, a run comprising 7 games.

With both teams sitting in the Championship’s bottom seven in terms of both their points tallies and their attacking records, one shouldn’t expect a host of goalmouth action in this meeting; opposing both teams to score looks a good bet on Wednesday night.

1-0 to the hosts looks a solid correct score prediction for this match; Hull rank third bottom of the division for shots on target, but allow their opponents more than all bar two teams. If pushed, I’d back Morison to continue his solid start at the expense of the goal-shy Tigers.
