Match Summary

2 We fancy:

Both teams to score. Whereas Hull are the second=lowest scorers in the division, Preston have seen over four goals scored in their last five games. If North End attack as they did away at Aston Villa they should be among the goals once more but possibly at the expense of their defensive organisation.

4/6 Both teams to score

One to Watch: Evandro

After the January signing started this season with a goal and three assists, his injury was a major blow to Adkins’ side, with the fans and manager alike eagerly anticipating his return. Given that the Tigers have scored just once in the attacking midfielder’s absence, their number of points has similarly taken a knock. Whether Evandro is able to start from the outset remains to be seen but with Fraizer Campbell suffering through a dry spell. the Brazilian will be under a lot of pressure to perform.

Nigel Adkins is under increasing pressure to recall summer signings Jon Toral and David Milinkovic to the squad, with Hull City desperately in need of creative inspiration. The manager will hope to solve that issue by introducing Evandro following his Brazilian’s return to fitness.

With Callum Robinson, Alan Browne and Sean Maguire all busy during Tuesday’s international clash between Northern Ireland and Wales, Alex Neil must weigh up the threat of fatigue. As Robinson and Browne are amongst the club’s top scorers, it would come as a surprise is neither were to start. 

Hull City vs Preston North End Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Evandro lead Hull to a much-needed win this weekend?

Two of the Championship’s bottom three face off on Saturday as Preston North End travel to Hull City, The Tigers could escape the relegation zone with a victory, but Preston would achieve the same outcome with just a draw. 

Hull are 8/5 to win, despite having failed to do so in their last five games. With the club now rooted to the bottom of the table, Nigel Adkins doesn’t have long to save his job and thus will be hoping that the returning Evandro can be his side’s catalyst. 

Preston are 17/10 to take all three points and overcame their own poor spell with a thumping victory over Wigan Athletic in their last match. The international break could not have come at a worse time for the Lilywhites, whose boss Alex Neil will be desperate to keep their positive momentum going on Saturday. 

A draw is 9/4 and would likely be a fair result between two relatively evenly-matched teams. However, Preston have been neglecting their defensive duties while attacking, making the game unpredictable. 

Fraizer Campell is 5/1 to score first but has now gone six matches without a goal. Hull have been desperately short of attacking talent this season, although Preston may provide the perfect opponents against whom Campbell can rediscover his form. 

Lucas Nmecha is 13/2 to score first and, at 19 years old, is an exciting talent for Preston. However, the forward has yet to score in six appearances this season, whereas Adkins’ side rely more on their talent in midfield. Their men in the middle have 13 goals between them. 

Predicted Score: Hull City 1 - 1 Preston North End
