Hull City

David Prutton issues prediction for Hull’s clash with Millwall



After struggling since their 4-1 victory over Preston North End on the opening day of the season, Hull City have suddenly burst into life over the last two weeks of Championship action.

Things were looking really bleak for the Tigers following that drubbing at Deepdale at the beginning of August as they failed to win in any of their next nine league matches.

Grant McCann’s side picked up just three points out of a possible 27 in that period with the Northern Irishman’s job looking like it was on the line, but to the surprise of many the last three league matches for Hull have seen nine points won.

Barnsley, Birmingham and Cardiff have all been put to the sword and it comes at a time where there is increasing speculation that Acun Ilicali, the Turkish businessman who is set to purchase the club, will want his own man at the helm.

McCann will get on with the job though and his side will welcome a Millwall team to the MKM Stadium on Saturday – a side who are the draw specialists of the Championship with nine of those in 19 games this season.

Gary Rowett’s outfit have drawn their last three on the bounce and it will come to the surprise of no-one that EFL pundit David Prutton has predicted a share of the spoils on his Sky Sports podcast.

The ex-Nottingham Forest and Leeds midfielder thinks it will be a 1-1 draw between the two sides and that would be a result that McCann would be content with, although for Millwall’s sake they need to start stringing some wins together quickly.

The Verdict

You have to wonder if the Hull players have ramped it up a level after seeing the speculation regarding their manager’s future with a new man about to take the club over from the Allam family.

They have won more matches in the last three weeks than they had all season before they went to Barnsley on November 6 and a switch to a back three seems to have done the trick for McCann.

That formation will mean Hull and Millwall will match up against each other, with the Lions being one of the most difficult teams in the league to break down.

I can just see Rowett’s side sneaking a narrow victory on the road though – one that they very much need after three stalemate’s on the spin but Jed Wallace needs to find his shooting boots again having not found the back of the net since mid-October.
