Hull City News
Hull City strengthened their grip at the top of the Championship table with a hard fought 1-0 victory over Ipswich Town last weekend and following the fine result, there is a great belief among the Tigers’ camp that they will be able to earn promotion back into the Premier League.
Despite the positive mood though, the table still remains extremely tight at the moment and manager Steve Bruce will surely not allow his players to get complacent by demanding another good result when they play hosts to promotion rivals Sheffield Wednesday this weekend.
Hull City Probable Lineup: A. McGregor, M. Dawson, C. Davies, A. Robertson, R. Snodgrass, D. Meyler , J. Livermore, M. Diamé, S. Clucas, M. Odubajo, A. Hernández

Sheffield Wednesday claimed a come from behind 1-1 draw against Queens Park Rangers in midweek but manager Carlos Carvalhal would perhaps had felt that his side missed out great a chance to claim the three points on the night.
Wednesday remain in one of the play off positions but Carvalhal knows that his side cannot afford to drop more points as there are no less than four teams behind them chasing the table and a good result when they travel to the KC Stadium to square off against Hull City this weekend will be of paramount importance.
Sheffield Wednesday Probable Lineup: K. Westwood, D. Pudil, J. Hunt, V. Sasso, T. Lees, R. Wallace, A. McGeady, K. Lee, B. Bannan, A. Nuhiu, G. Hooper
Wednesday and Hull played out a close 1-1 draw in the last encounter between the two sides earlier on in the season and the clash on Saturday is expected to be a close battle once again.
Hull are the favourites though due to home advantage as well as their fine run of form and the Tigers should be able to claim a narrow victory on the day.
