Footymad preview History of the Hull City v Blackpool fixture

Hull City are ready to welcome Blackpool to The KC Stadium on Friday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Tigers are clearly on top, having won 26 and lost only 12 of the 50 games.

The previous match played between the two at The KC Stadium was more than three years back, in February 2008, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Championship match.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Hull City at home in recent games, and, though we cannot see a run starting here, we do think the The Tigers will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
