QPR head to Hull City on Saturday in the Sky Bet Championship, we take a look at the Tigers season to date.
Best Day Out: Leeds United 0, Hull City 2 - 29th December 2018
Not many sides have beaten Leeds in their own backyard this season so for Hull to go to their local rivals and claim a 2-0 victory was an impressive result. A double from Jarrod Bowen sealed victory in an eight-match unbeaten run.
One To Forget: Reading 3, Hull City 0 - 22nd September 2018
Hull’s form since the start of the season has improved dramatically with the Tigers now comfortably in mid-table. However, things were very different when a 3-0 defeat at early relegation rivals Reading condemned them to just seven points from a possible 27 after just nine matches.
Top Goalscorer: Jarrod Bowen - with 19 goals to his name this season the highly rated youngster has been linked with a move to the Premier League.
Number of clean sheets: 9
Points picked up at home: 31 - Hull are unbeaten in their last nine matches at the KC Stadium
Points picked up on the road: 19 - Hull haven’t won away from home in their last six league games
Key Player: Kamil Grosicki - The Hull midfielder is leading the charts for assists for the Tigers with nine to his name this campaign. The Polish winger has also bagged five goals in 35 appearances this term.
Emerging young talent: Reece Burke - Jarrod Bowen has obviously grabbed the headlines with his goals but Reece Burke’s performances at centre-half haven’t gone unnoticed. The former West Ham youngster moved to Humberside in July last year and has made 28 appearances this term.
Previous Result: Norwich City 3, Hull City 2 - 13th March 2019
No disgrace to lose at promotion favourites Norwich City, Hull gave a good account of themselves at Carrow Road. The Canaries raced into an early 2-0 lead before Marc Pugh levelled on the stroke of half-time. Norwich did add a third after the restart and when Chris Martin scored three minutes from time for the Tigers they nearly grabbed a point.
Last time out against the R’s: QPR 2, Hull City 3 - 1st December 2019
A poor R’s display saw them suffer defeat at Loftus Road earlier this season. Jarrod Bowen put the visitors ahead after six minutes before Marcus Henriksen doubled their advantage. Pawel Wszolek pulled one back soon after before Bowen’s second after half-time put the Tigers in cruise control. Luke Freeman did pull a goal back in stoppage time but it was too little, too late for Steve McClaren’s side.
