          Hull City vs Leicester Preview, Tips & Stats

          Leicester make the trip to the MKM Stadium to take on Hull this Saturday in the Championship. Hull look to retain their spot in the Play-offs whereas Leicester aim to regain their healthy lead at the top of the table.

          Hull currently sit sixth in the Championship after 36 games. The Tigers have 16 wins, nine draws and 11 losses, leaving them on 57 points, two points above seventh-place Norwich.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Hull have two wins and three draws.

          Jacob Greaves opened the scoring for Hull in the seventh minute but Jack Rudoni equalised for Huddersfield in the 92nd minute. However, Greaves popped up with another goal in the 94th minute to give Hull the 2 - 1 win. It was another 2 - 1 win for Hull the next time out, this time against Southampton. Anass Zaroury and Fabio Carvalho both scored to give Hull the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. Joe Aribo did score late on for The Saints, but Hull held on for the 2 - 1 win.

          Carvalho was on the scoresheet again for Hull, this time giving Hull the lead against West Brom. Darnell Furlong equalised for West Brom before halftime and neither team could find another goal and had to settle for a 1 - 1 draw. The Tigers picked up another draw against Preston. Hull only had four shots on target in 15 shots and failed to convert any of them in the 0 - 0 draw.

          The last time out for Hull was against Birmingham. Ozan Tufan gave Hull the lead in the first half but a late 82nd minute goal from Lukas Jutkiewicz grabbed a 1 - 1 draw for Birmingham.

          Leicester, on the other hand, currently sit top of the Championship. In 36 games, The Foxes have 26 wins, three draws and seven losses which leaves them on 81 points, three points above Ipswich Town.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Leicester have one win and four losses.

          Despite having 72% of the possession and 24 shots, Finn Isaac Azaz and Samuel Silvera gave Middlesbrough the 2 - 1 win over Leicester, with Jamie Vardy on the scoresheet late for The Foxes. It was another loss for Leicester in the Championship, this time against Leeds. Wout Faes opened the scoring for Leicester, but a wild last 15 minutes saw goals from Connor Roberts and Patrick Bamford and an own goal from Faes gave Leeds the 3 - 1 win.

          In the Fifth Round of the FA Cup, Leicester took on Premier League Bournemouth. After a goalless 90 minutes, the tie was sent to extra time, but a goal from Abdul Fatawu gave Leicester the 1 - 0 win. Back in the Championship, however, it was another loss for The Foxes. Following goals from Ilias Chair and Sinclair Armstrong, Ben Nelson did get Leicester into the game with 30 minutes to go. However, Leicester couldn’t convert any of their 18 shots and slumped to a 2 - 1 loss.

          The most recent outing for Leicester was against Sunderland. Vardy scored the only goal of the game in the 13th minute to give Leicester the 1 - 0 win over Sunderland.

          Hull and Leicester have met 82 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming all the way back in 1905. The Tigers have the better record in the fixture with 31 wins in comparison to Leicester’s 27 wins, the other 24 games ending in a share of the points.
