Hull City transfer news: Tigers to ‘miss out’ on Burnley defender, Rotherham Utd ‘target’ Huddersfield Town outcast
Hull City will look to bounce back this weekend after suffering their first defeat in seven Championship matches against Sheffield United. The Tigers will host Cardiff City as they look to go eleven points clear of the relegation zone.
The Bluebirds currently sit in 21st place but could go within a point of City if they are to beat them in Yorkshire on Saturday afternoon. However, the Welsh outfit remain without a league win since the start of November.
Hull City have won all of their last three meetings with Cardiff and enjoyed a dramatic 3-2 win in the reverse fixture. Regan Slater’s second half brace gifted them all three points after being behind past the hour mark.
