History of the Hull City v Blackpool fixture

Hull City are ready to welcome Blackpool to The KC Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Tigers are clearly on top, having won 25 and lost only 11 of the 47 games.

The previous match played between the two in Hull was more than three years back, in January 2001, with Blackpool inflicting a narrow 0-1 defeat upon the Tigers in a League Division Three match.

Hull City have been playing quite well at home, winning 3, drawing 2, and losing just 1. A total of 8 goals have been scored by the Tigers in those games, with 3 conceded.

The away form of Blackpool is pretty dire, managing a paltry 2 draws from the last six matches. Seasiders have conceded 10 goals in these games, and only hit 3 in reply.

Hull City's total of 12 points from their 7 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola League One. Blackpool find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 6 games have yielded only 2 points.
