Stoke City - Hull City (Premier League)

It`s going to be an interesting battle between these two teams, which did a good job in the last round of the league. Stoke City defeated Aston Villa with 1-2 as guests and Hull win valuable three points with a home win over QPR. The teams come to the Britannia Stadium this Saturday and the odds for the game offered by the leading bookmaker bet365 are as follows: 2.05 for a home win, with a draw at 3.30 and 4.20 for the victory of the guests. The last two meetings here passed under dictation of Stoke City and for the past six direct meetings Hull won only one of them.

Stoke is a tough team and hardly allows to be dominated by a "tigers" at his Britannia Stadium. Although that Hull are in good shape, the players of Mark Hughes made typical strongly at home and even more, they have to make it up to their fans after they were humiliated in their last household from the visiting team of Manchester City. The team is far enough from the danger zone and far from ranking in the Top 6. Against Hull is expected to be aggressive from the beginning of the meeting, although that the attackers Bojan Krkic and Peter Odemwingie are gone, but only the absence of Krkic would be felt on the ground.

Hull City recorded two important wins, which at least temporarily pulled the team from the danger zone. After a long drought, the team managed to win against one of their direct rivals for survival in the elite of England and before that recorded an impressive draw with Manchester City. "Tigers" have only four points ahead of the 18th Burnley and will have to win at least a few more wins to feel calm. The coach Steve Bruce relies primarily on domestic events from which come most of the earned points. As guests Hull recorded only two wins - first at the beginning of the season and the second before 9 rounds. With injures in the camp of Hull City are Liam Rosenior, James Chester, Mohamed Diame and Robert Snodgrass.
