Two sides gunning for a place in the play-offs meet in the EFL Championship this weekend as Hull City face Preston North End.
Hull City currently sit 8th in the EFL Championship with five wins, five draws and three losses from thirteen games so far this season.
The Tigers have delivered a solid showing in their first few months of the campaign as they look both well placed and well equipped to mount a serious push for the play-offs.
They're coming into this game in poor form overall having won one, drawn two and lost two of their last five games, but having claimed three points in their most recent outing they'll be hoping they've now turned a corner.
Hull claimed a big three points in midweek as they travelled to the Midlands to face Birmingham City and Liam Rosenior's men walked away with all three points as Liam Delap and Jaden Philogene sealed a 2-0 win.
The win was more than welcome for Rosenior's side who will now be hoping to build on that and embark upon a sustained run of form, and similarly striker Liam Delap will be hoping he can continue to progress in his personal development after netting his fourth goal of the season at Birmingham as he looks to finally be settling in senior football.
All in all there are still question marks surrounding the Tigers but as they come into this game off the back of three points they'll feel confident of registering consecutive victories.
Preston North End currently sit 4th in the EFL Championship with six wins, four draws and three losses from thirteen games so far this season.
Few people expected Preston to be sitting so high in the league standings after thirteen games but a frankly outstanding start to the campaign had them top of the league for the first few weeks of the season.
However, they've since dropped off notably and they enter this game winless in their last six league games having drawn three and lost three of those.
Their most recent outing saw them held to a 2-2 draw at home to Southampton, a result that would have stung significantly given they were mere seconds away from sealing a sorely-needed 2-1 before a Chad Evans own goal in the 96th minute forced them to settle for just a point.
It still wasn't a bad result, mind, but the disappointment will be tough to shake off given the run of form they're currently on and given the difficulty of this fixture they could extend their winless run to seven on Saturday afternoon.
For our Hull vs. Preston prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
