Hull City FC transfer news: Tigers hopeful of triple signing by weekend, QPR reject bids for teenage striker
Hull City are set for their second away trip of the Championship season tonight as they face Burnley at Turf Moor.
The Tigers will be hoping to keep up their near perfect start to the new campaign, however the relegated club will definitely prove tough competition.
The sides’ last two meetings have both ended in a 1-1 draw when both were in the Premier League, while City haven’t beaten Burnley since a 3-0 hammering in 2015.
Jake Livermore, Abel Hernandez and Sam Clucas claimed the goals as the Tigers moved up to third in the Championship.
However, Hull’s overall recent record against Burnley has been pretty poor and they have only managed two wins against the Clarets since 2008.
Here are today’s rumours...
