      Tip Reasoning

      Steve Bruce’s side have responded well to the bitter disappointment of Premier League relegation last season. They went unbeaten in pre-season so came into the start of the campaign with renewed confidence while also doing some decent business in the transfer market, receiving good money for the likes of James Chester and Robbie Brady.

      Moses Odubajo arrived in after a successful season for Brentford last term while the arrival of Chuba Akpom and Isaac Hayden on loan from Arsenal added some youthful energy into the squad. All three started at fellow promotion hopefuls Wolves on Sunday as the Tigers drew 1-1 after an Allan Mcgregor error gifted the home side a point.

      They were comfortable 2-0 winners at home to Huddersfield on the opening day and this one could go down a similar route. Fulham were on the wrong end of a 6-0 thrashing the last time they visited the KC Stadium, a result which sent them firmly in the direction of the Premier League trap-door two seasons ago.

      Unlike Hull who look the best equipped of the sides relegated last season to bounce straight back, Fulham weren’t far off successive relegations last term as they ended up in 17th place with just 51 points.

      Kit Symons has seen his side pick up just 1 point from their opening 2 games this time around. They drew 1-1 at Cardiff on the opening day but slumped to a 2-1 defeat at home to Brighton at the weekend. It could have been a different story had they not conceded late goals in both matches but that will be little consolation for Symons as he looks to avoid another season of struggle at Craven Cottage.

      This will be a very tough game for them though. Steve Bruce knows this league well and Hull look to have already put Premier League relegation to the back of their minds. They are one of the favourites for promotion and should be too strong for Fulham on home soil on Wednesday night.

      This looks like a home banker and the Tigers are available at 4/6 to win the game. A repeat of their opening day 2-0 win can be backed at a tempting 6/1 and is worth a punt given Hull still look strong at the back with Curtis Davies and Michael Dawson providing solid foundations at the heart of the defence.
