After knocking out a Premier League side in the last round, Hull will be hoping to cause another upset in round four of the Capital One Cup, as they face high-flying Leicester City.

Here are THREE things to look out for in the game:

Joe Dodoo looking to score in three consecutive rounds

The 20-year old striker announced himself in a spectacular display against Bury in round two with a hat-trick and an assist in a 4-1 win.

He was rewarded for that with his first Premier League appearance and a start in the next round against West Ham United.

He scored again, giving Claudio Ranieri’s men a sixth minute lead before they eventually won the game in extra time. Dodoo will be hoping that he is given the nod against Hull as he aims to score in three consecutive cup rounds.

A good game between two sides in form

Steve Bruce’s men have really started to click this season following a mini post-relegation hangover at the start of the campaign.

The Tigers are unbeaten in eight and are curently second in the Championship. While Leicester have had a superb start to the season under their new manager, largely thanks to England striker Jamie Vardy.

With both teams in good form, this should be an exciting encounter with both sides perfectly capable of pressing to the next round.

Hull looking to end their Foxes hoodoo

The Tigers have not beaten Tuesday’s opponents in their last five attempts but manager Steve Bruce is confident of halting that run.

Hull will hope that Abel Hernandez continues his terrific start to the season and add to his tally of seven goals.

With Hull looking good value for money at the moment, the former Manchester United defender is right to be confident as his side look like one of the best in the Championship.
