Hull City face a trip to Middlesbrough at Riverside Stadium on Monday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 16 out of 24 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in November 2010, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Championship match.
