Recent respective form guides

Hull City's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Tigers have scored 7, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Birmingham C.'s away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Blues's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 6 goals for and 5 against.

Hull City are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 4 points from 5 matches. Birmingham C. find themselves struggling down in 15th position in the league having picked up 4 points from their 5 matches.
