FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the Tigers at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Bluebirds come away with an easy victory. Away win

Hull City Failed to win in previous 2 home matches.
Drawn each of their last 2 games.
Not won in the 6 most recent games.
