Hull City's season just got better earlier in the week when it was announced that boss Liam Rosenior had signed a new three-year contract at the MKM Stadium, as the Tigers continue on their play-off push in the Championship.

Rosenior's side are currently sixth in the table, three points clear of Sunderland in seventh. They will be looking to strengthen their position inside the play-off places on Friday night (19:45) as they travel to face Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

The hosts, however, come into this game on the back of an impressive 1-0 victory over Sunderland on home soil, so this will be an interesting test for the Tigers.

Bristol City vs Hull City Betting Tips

  • Hull to win - 7/4
  • Both teams to score - 4/5

Match Odds

Before beating the Black Cats, Bristol City had failed to win in their previous four league outings. They are 8/5 to win on Friday. A draw can be backed at 11/5, while the Tigers are 7/4 to win their third Championship match on the bounce.

Both teams to score is priced at 4/5. Over 2.5 goals is on offer at 11/10.

Team News 

The Robins have no fresh injury concerns heading into Friday but manager Liam Manning could stick with the 4-4-2 formation that snatched them their victory against Sunderland once again. And while Nakhi Wells returned to the squad from injury last week, he was an unused substitute and will likely settle for a place on the bench once again.

Hull also have no fresh worries ahead of this fixture, and Rosenior is unlikely to make any changes to his side that comfortably defeated Cardiff City last time out. They will, however, have to continue without star man Jaden Philogene, who is sidelined until the New Year.

Hull to win at 7/4

This campaign is going brilliantly for the visitors as they are making themselves comfortable in the top six. Many expected their bright start to fade but they continue to warrant their place in the promotion picture. With two wins on the bounce, followed by the news of Rosenior's new contract, it is very hard to see their bubble bursting this side of Christmas.

Hull are well-drilled and they have shown time and again that they have the quality to keep up momentum in the race for the play-offs. The Robins may have enjoyed a huge victory last weekend, but consistency is still an issue for them and they are facing a side who are one of the most consistent sides in the division.

So to be able to get 7/4 on Hull to collect the three points offers excellent value.

Both teams to score @ 4/5

This market stood out to us for a couple of reasons. Firstly, for how impressed we have been with how Hull are playing this year, clean sheets have been an issue. Out of their 22 games in the second tier in 2023-24, the Tigers have shut out their opponents on just six occasions. And while they did keep out Cardiff last time out, Bristol City should offer more of an attacking threat than the Bluebirds.

This leads us on to the second reason. Both teams to score has landed in four of the Robins' last six matches, and they will of course be buoyant after beating Sunderland. As the home side, they will have the backing of the crowd and this could have an impact on the pitch, and thus lead to Bristol City starting on the front foot. You get the sense that getting the first goal is vital for them against Hull.
