25/01/2014 - Hull City (H)


We've Tamed The Lions, Now For The Tigers!

This weekend sees Blues take on Premier League side Hull City in the FA Cup 4th Round. We haven't played The Tigers since the 2009/2010 season in the Carling Cup, when they beat us 3-1 at the KC Stadium. (Moussa scored for us). We first played them in 1959, when we lost 3-2. Hull currently sit 11th in the Premier League, 5 points from safety and 28 points off top.

Saturday's game is a sellout, so lets hope everyone gets behind the Blues in what is our first 4th round appearance since 06/07 when we lost 3-1 to Spurs.

Hull's Last 5 Results:

Norwich City (A) - L 1-0
Chelsea (H) - L 0-2
Middlesbrough (A) - W 2-0 - McLean, Proschwitz
Liverpool (A) - L 0-2
Fulham (H) - W 6-0 - Elmohamedy, Koren (2), Boyd, Huddlestone, Fryatt

Out of 11 away games they have played this season, Hull have:

Won: 1
Drawn: 2
Lost: 8

Fact

Hull are yet to score a league goal this year, with the only goals being scored so far i 2014 coming in their FA Cup 3rd round triumph at Middlesbrough, where they won 2-0.
