History of the Hull City v Torquay United fixture

Hull City prepare to entertain Torquay United at The KC Stadium on Saturday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Tigers are clearly on top, having won 7 and lost only 2 of the 12 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at The KC Stadium was less than a year ago, in March 2003, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a League Division Three match.
