33 apps, 6 goals: Can this international step up and fire Hull to safety?



Hull City pulled off an impressive 2-0 away against Nottingham Forest last weekend to clamber out of the Championship relegation zone, if only by a point. 

Chaos off the field has long since undermined progress on it at the KCOM Stadium and the prospect of a second relegation is still a very real one for the Tigers.

Nigel Adkins is known for his positive outlook and he will need all of that positivity to guide Hull away from the drop zone and get the best out of the talented players at his disposal who have underperformed through most of this season.

One who could count themselves among those players and did not feature against Forest – he was an unused substitute – was former Wolves striker Nouha Dicko.

We’ve put his performance this season under the FLW to look at whether he’s done enough so far this season or whether he can make the difference in the relegation battle.

Six goals isn’t bad but for a man of Dicko’s ability, he should be getting more from 33 games. His other stats are unimpressive and on this form, he’ll have a lot to do to get back into the first team.

However, I believe he can get in on the act with the odd goal and that could just make the difference – Hull have some good attacking players and that array of choice should see them just squeak out of trouble.
