Huddlestone starts: The predicted Hull City XI to face Peterborough tonight



Hull City face a huge game in their season on Wednesday night, as they host Peterborough United at the MKM Stadium.

Both sides won automatic promotion to the Championship from League One last season, but both are now finding life hard in the second-tier.

Grant McCann’s side go into the game 21st in the standings, just one point clear of the relegation zone.

Peterborough meanwhile are second from bottom, but would leapfrog the Tigers in the table with victory this evening.

But just what sort of lineup could McCann name to give his side the best possible chance of picking up a crucial three points from this encounter?

We’ve taken a look at the starting XI that Hull could name for this one, right here.

Having altered his formation in recent times, we imagine McCann could go with a 4-3-3 system for this one.

In goal, Matt Ingram has been very impressive for Hull this season, and ought to keep his place between the sticks for this one.

Having been largely reliable whenever called upon, Josh Emmanuel could reclaim his place at right-back for this one, while Callum Elder made his return in the defeat at Huddersfield at the weekend.

Have Hull had a higher or lower average attendance than these 23 sides this season?

Have Hull had a higher or lower average attendance than Sheffield United this season?

The young duo of Jacob Greaves and Manchester United loanee Di’Shon Bernard meanwhile, look to be forming a rather promising partnership in the centre of defence.

In midfield, Tom Huddlestone is available to feature for the first time since September, and his experience in a game such as this could be crucial.

Andy Cannon meanwhile, has been largely reliable when called upon from midfield, where George Honeyman will also be able to provide an influential attacking influence from.

Further forward, Keane Lewis-Potter and Mallik Wilks are both threats for Hull, and with McCann backing the latter to improve as the season goes, you would expect him to start here.

Josh Magennis meanwhile, could be in line to return to the side after a hamstring injury, having been an unused substitute at the weekend, a move that could see summer signing Tyler Smith drop out of the starting XI in favour of the more experienced and established centre forward.
