Hull City transfer news: Middlesbrough ‘eye’ ex-Tigers defender, Huddersfield Town ‘target’ Australia international
Despite a strong start to the season, the Yorkshire outfit’s form has slumped and they currently sit only a point outside of the relegation zone. However, a win today could see them overtake Blackpool.
The Seasiders currently sit 19th in the second tier but are unbeaten in their last three matches. However, they could be without three key players this evening after Marvin Ekpiteta, Dominic Thompson and Shayne Lavery were all sent off in a dramatic 3-3 draw against Sheffield United at the weekend.
The visit to Bloomfield Road will be their fourth match since Shota Arveladze’s sacking, however they don’t appear to be much closer to appointing his successor.
Here are today’s rumours...
