Hull City enjoyed an excellent start to the season with wins in each of their opening four League One outings and no goals conceded during that time, however this form was turned on its head when the Tigers locked horns with Fleetwood Town last Friday evening. The Lancashire outfit demolished Grant McCann’s men to the tune of 4-1 and sent them out of the automatic promotion berths as a result.
This was a thoroughly unexpected outcome, especially so given that Fleetwood had until then been struggling in the lower reaches of the league table. Hull will therefore be desperate to bounce back from this hugely disappointing result and get their promotion bid back on track as soon as possible.
Hull City’s weekend opponents Rochdale also sit in the lower reaches of the division with just four points collected from their opening five league outings. The Dale have recorded just a single win since the start of the season – this being against none other than Fleetwood Town earlier this month – and they head into this match on the back of a 2-1 defeat at Accrington Stanley.
Problems for Hosts
Given Hull’s start to the season, last weekend’s result could be seen as a one-off and generally the East Yorkshire side have impressed since the start of the campaign. Rochdale have got off to a slow start and while they can undoubtedly cause a few problems for the Tigers this weekend, we envisage the hosts edging their way to a narrow victory and grabbing a welcome three points at the KCOM Stadium.
