Hull City showed the difference in play created by a better confidence level as the team beat Reading during the weekend for a second successive win. Wigan’s home victory over Bolton, who are also involved in the fight against relegation, is the only victory for Paul Cook’s men in the last 10 matches. Hull City still have an outside chance of finishing in the top six and this will be a great motivation for the team to aim for a third successive victory. Our preview would go with a win for Hull.
