Hull City look to build on the midweek victory over Millwall when they take on Birmingham the KCOM Stadium this weekend. Nigel Adkins watched his team respond brilliantly to the thrashing against Brentford by beating Millwall and the result has helped Hull City to stay just behind the top 10 places. Meanwhile, Birmingham remain in with a shout to finish in the play-offs with the team only three points behind Bristol in the sixth place.

Hull City’s success over Millwall comes at a crucial time, as Nigel Adkins was getting worried about his team’s inability to hold onto a lead. Despite making positive starts, Hull City had been through a string of disappointing results. Birmingham’s recent form is decent, but they have an Achilles heel when it comes to playing away against Hull City. Birmingham’s last two trips to the KCOM Stadium have ended in failure. Even after a wonderful performance against Bristol, the blues are unlikely to hold high hopes. Our preview would pick a win for Hull.

Correct Score odds
There have been plenty of clean sheets for Hull City at the KCOM Stadium, but there has been a hint of nervousness from Adkins’ men, who have not managed a shutout in the last four matches. Birmingham are offensively good especially in away matches with the team managing 10 goals in the last four trips on the road. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Hull City.

First Goalscorer odds
Che Adams came up with a remarkable hat-trick in the reverse fixture against Hull City.
