History of the Hull City v Oldham Athletic fixture

Hull City are ready to welcome Oldham Athletic to The KC Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Tigers are clearly on top, having won 22 and lost only 9 of the 38 games.

The previous match played between the two in Hull was within the last three years, in December 2001, with Oldham Ath. inflicting a narrow 2-3 defeat upon the Tigers in a F.A. Cup match at Boothferry Park.
