Betting tips and match preview | FA Cup
Fulham welcome Hull to Craven Cottage in the fourth round of the FA Cup, with both sides targeting progression.
The Cottagers come into this match on the back of a 1-0 defeat against Reading, with Fulham’s mixed form continuing.
Roy Beerens (49), scored the only goal of the match in the first minutes of the second half.
It was a very tight contest, with Fulham very unlucky to come out on the losing side, with home advantage proving to be decisive.
The penalty award was Reading’s 11th of the season, with Beerens following up on Swift’s saved effort.
Fulham Need Consistency
The Cottagers have had a reasonably mixed bag throughout the season, they are in 9th place in the Championship though.
They have won three, lost two and drawn one of their last six, this highlights how inconsistent they are.
Fulham are just five points off the play offs, with promotion from the Championship their highest priority.
Although they will fancy a cup run in conjunction, they have a great chance against a Hull side who are battling relegation.
Fulham come into this match as favourites, despite their own mixed form but home advantage is key.
This will be a tough fixture for the Championship side, with Marco Silva enjoying an excellent start to his managerial career at Hull.
The Cottagers will be looking to better their overall record against Hull, with three wins, two draws and seven defeats in their previous 12 meetings.
Tigers Looking Great
The Tigers come into this match on the back of a 2-1 win, against Manchester United in the EFL Cup Semi Final second leg.
Tom Huddlestone (35) opened the scoring for the Tigers, with a very fortunate penalty for the home side.
That meant Hull went into the break with a 2-1 aggregate score, however Pogba struck back for United in the 66th minute, restoring the 2 goal advantage.
Oumar Niasse (85) gave Hull the lead for the second time in the match, to make it 2-1 on the night and 3-2 on aggregate.
It means that despite winning the match, Hull lost out on a place in the EFL Cup final, ending United’s 17 game unbeaten run in the process.
Hull Need A Run
The Tigers have found wins hard to come by, but they have looked like a side resurgent under their new manager.
They are 18th in the Premier League, level with Crystal Palace on points, if they can keep the momentum going they could get out of trouble.
Another cup run could provide relief for the Premier League strugglers, but the priority will be to avoid relegation.
