PREVIEW: Stoke City v Hull City

Leaving the New York Stadium on Tuesday evening, for the first time in a long time, it felt a whole lot better being Hull City fan. For a little while anyway. The Tigers recorded their first win of the campaign with a 2-3 success over Rotherham United, but the next test is quickly upon us, with a trip to newly relegated Stoke City.

Back to back away wins?

Nigel Adkins is going to be sorely tempted to maintain the same side that beat the Millers on their home turf last Tuesday evening. However, defender Stephen Kingsley could come back into the reckoning – if he passes the concussion protocol. With Kamil Grosicki’s future still in the balance while the transfer window remains open abroad, the Polish international winger is likely to stay on the sidelines.

Stoke City have got off to a dreadful start to life in the Championship. Yet to record a win - and walloped 0-3 at home by newly promoted Wigan Athletic on Wednesday night - boss Gary Rowett is already coming under increasing pressure just four games into the season. Defender Ashley Williams is suspended for the game with the Tigers after being sent off against the Latics, but the Potters will hope Bruno Martins-Indi will recover from a heel injury to replace him.
