Sat in eighth spot in the Championship standings ahead of the weekend's action, Hull City are in pursuit of a play-off place this season. 

They have had a tough time of it since the turn of the year, but will be hoping for an improvement when they host Millwall, who are lingering in the lower echelons of the second tier.

  • Over 2.5 goals @ EVS

Team News 

Hull will be missing Jean-Michael Seri and Adama Traore, who are both away at the Africa Cup of Nations, while Jaden Philogene, Liam Delap and Aaron Connolly are all out injured. 

However, Noah Ohio recently joined from Standard Liege on loan and could feature for the Tigers. 

The visitors will be without Shaun Hutchinson, Tom Bradshaw, Ryan Leonard and Aidomo Emakhu, while Ryan Longman cannot play against his parent club. 

Match Odds 

Hull are expected to make the most of home advantage and are EVS to defeat their visitors, with the draw priced at 12/5 and a Millwall victory available at 3/1. 

Both teams to score is a 5/6 option, with Town EVS to score over 2.5 goals in the game. 

Hull City to win @ EVS

Hull head into Saturday's clash with Millwall at the MKM Stadium having not played in two weeks and the rest could do them the world of good. 

The Tigers started the year with five matches in just under three weeks as a result of an FA Cup replay with Birmingham and Liam Rosenior has therefore had plenty of time to work with his side since they were last in action in the Championship. 

It has not been a brilliant year so far for Hull, with City having slipped out of the play-off positions, but they dug deep to win their most recent game away at Sunderland. 

That should have boosted their confidence and they are worth backing to follow up with a win against the Lions, who have also struggled for form this year. 

The capital club have not won any of their last four matches in all competitions, losing to Leicester, Middlesbrough and QPR as part of that run. 

Eight points separate Millwall from the relegation positions, but they cannot be complacent and their tally of only 30 goals in 29 league is pretty underwhelming. 

Hull to win at EVS

Over 2.5 goals @ EVS 

Goals may have been in short supply for Millwall this season, but punters should expect a high-scoring game when they visit Hull. 

Both teams have scored in three of Millwall's last four matches and the goals should flow again at the MKM Stadium. 

Hull's league games have featured an average of 2.86 goals per game this term, with four of their last six assignments featuring over 2.5 goals, including their most recent home game in the Championship against Norwich. 

The reverse fixture between these sides was an intriguing 2-2 draw at The Den and punters should expect at least three goals when teams reconvene in the second tier.
