Stoke City vs Hull CityEngland Championship, KO: 12:00 Sep 24, 2023, Bet365 Stadium
Hull City will be looking to maintain their unbeaten record this season as they travel to Stoke City for a Championship fixture on Sunday. The visitors have done some of their best work on the road and can avoid defeat at bet365 Stadium.
Stoke City head into Sunday’s clash off the back of a 2-2 draw at Huddersfield Town in their previous Championship fixture. They came from behind to lead through Daniel Johnson and Ben Wilmot but could not hold on for the win and were pegged back by the hosts.
That draw continues a difficult run of results for Stoke City, who are now winless in their last four Championship matches. Alex Neil’s men have suffered three defeats in that run and are currently battling near the foot of the table.
Stoke City will be relying on home support on Sunday having won two of their last three Championship matches in front of their fans. However, they were beaten 2-0 by leaders Preston North End in their previous fixture at bet365 Stadium.
Hull City are also coming off a draw as they were held 0-0 by Leeds United in their previous Championship fixture. They were second best for much of the contest but came to life after Leeds were reduced to 10 men with Adama Traore striking the woodwork late on.
That was the third stalemate in the last four matches for Hull City, who have been plagued by too many draws this season. However, the good news is that they are still unbeaten after seven matches and are battling near the playoff places.
One positive for Hull City heading to bet365 Stadium is that they have done their best work on their travels this season. They have won their last two away matches, claiming a 2-1 victory at Blackburn Rovers before picking up a 1-0 win over second placed Leicester City.
