Recent respective form guides

Hull City's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While The Tigers have scored 5, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

Middlesbrough's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The Boro's have scored 6 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.

Hull City find themselves in a respectable 6th position, courtesy of the 23 points they have accumulated from 15 games. Middlesbrough see themselves just below half way in the Barclays Premier League, showing a record of 19 points from their 15 games played so far,
