Wolves 4/7 to beat Hull City in Tuesday Championship clash

Competition: Championship

Market: Wolves to beat Hull City

Odds: 4/7 @ Bet365

Two sides that are involved in battles at different ends of the Championship table, on Tuesday night, high-flying Wolves will be looking to move one step closer to the Premier League when they welcome Hull City to Molineux.

For the hosts on Tuesday night, after failing to secure a top-half finish last season, Nuno Espírito Santo’s Wolves side have transformed into the Championship’s runaway league leaders. Leading since the turn of the New Year, the Midlands side already hold a six-point advantage over Cardiff and one more win will see them book their return to the Premier League. It has been their attacking form that has caught the eye this season, scoring 71 times in 39 games, Wolves hold the best-attacking stats in the division and that can be put down to playmakers Barry Douglas and Ivan Cavaleiro, the pair already have 25 assists between them. As for their recent form, since losing to playoff hopefuls Aston Villa, Wolves have won their last three on the bounce and are unbeaten at home since the start of January.

As for the Tigers, former Southampton manager Nigel Adkins will know that his Hull City side are far from out of the woods just yet. After being relegated from the Premier League last year, Hull are sat down in 18th position and currently hold a six-point buffer over the Championship’s bottom three. While their attention will be primarily taking points off the teams around them, the Tigers travel to Molineux with an awful record against the league leaders. Adkins side have won just one of their last seven league trips to Molineux, losing three and drawing three. If Hull are intent on avoiding back to back relegations they will also need to improve on their defensive issues no team outside of the relegation zone boasts a worse defensive record than Hull.
