PREVIEW: Hull City v Ipswich Town

Once upon a time, international week was dreaded, as the mundane international football season - with it’s nonsensical friendlies - took centre stage. Now though, it’s actually a blessing. No more worrying about Hull City under Allam rule for another two weeks. Simply bliss. Ignorance though, cannot last forever and the stark reality of a home game with Ipswich now looms - and the omnipresent spectre of the Allams rears into view, still casting a profound shadow over Hull City AFC.

Tigers n Tractors...

Home boss Nigel Adkins will consider recalling influential midfielder Jackson Irvine to his side, after the Aussie international missed the last two matches with a thigh problem. Deadline day loanees defender Tommy Elphick (Aston Villa) and striker Chris Martin (Derby County) will be looking to make their Hull City debuts, as the Tigers attempt to arrest a run of form that has seen the hosts slip to six straight home defeats.

Ipswich Town travel to East Yorkshire with a barrow load of their own problems to dwell upon. Manager Paul Hurst has yet to mastermind a win for his new club since arriving from Shrewsbury Town. In addition, Teddy Bishop, Emyr Huws and Andre Dozzell are all unavailable as they continue to recover from injuries, although Cole Skuse could return after suffering concussion. If that wasn’t bad enough, already in the bottom three, Ipswich have won just one of their last 18 visits to Hull – and currently find themselves winless in their previous 11 matches against the Tigers, losing 8 of them.
