Market: Hull win
Odds: 1/2 @ Pribet
Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the Championship table, Hull will welcome Rotherham to the MKM Stadium on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, mounting a stellar second-half comeback away at Swansea over the weekend as they eventually snatched a 2-2 draw, Hull have continued to gain a string of plaudits from across the Championship this season. Already cementing their spot as one of the surprise packages, the mood in Liam Rosenior’s camp appears to be at a red-hot high. With some around the MKM Stadium now dreaming of the chance to mount a genuine play-off charge in 2024, the former Derby coach should be smelling a golden opportunity here. Signing off October with a stellar 1-0 victory against Preston, the Tigers have lost just one of their previous five showdowns against Championship opposition. Likewise, securing back-to-back 1-0 wins in front of their own supporters, Hull should also be excited by their continued success on home soil. In fact, Rosenior’s men have lost just a single contest at the MKM Stadium since opening up the new campaign.
As for the visitors, while Rotherham might have marked their return from November’s international break with a gritty 1-1 stalemate at home against Leeds, it is no secret that the Millers find themselves at the heart of another Championship relegation scrap. Heading into the fortnight interval with a nightmare performance as they slumped to a 5-0 drumming at the hands of Watford, interim boss Wayne Carlisle will be more than aware that he has a real uphill struggle on his hands. Opening Tuesday’s showdown sat four points adrift in the drop zone and tipped as a leading relegation contender, Rotherham have recorded just a single win from any of their previous 12 appearances across all formats – a run that stems all the way back to September 2nd. With their glaring issues highlighted by a 2-0 defeat against Sheffield Wednesday last month, we are backing a home victory in midweek.
