History of the Sunderland v Hull City fixture

Hull City face a trip to Sunderland at The Stadium of Light on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The The Tigers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 11 and win only 4 of the 17 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2009, the The Black Cats carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Premier League match.

Recent respective form guides

Sunderland's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Black Cats have scored 7, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Hull City is pretty dire, managing a paltry 2 draws from the last six matches. While the The Tigers have hit 4 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Sunderland's 6 points from 4 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 9th position. Hull City find themselves struggling down in 14th position in the league having picked up 4 points from their 4 matches.
