PREVIEW: Hull City v West Ham United

It cannot be understated how important the next two Premier League fixtures are for Hull City if they want to avoid the relegation trapdoor back to the Championship. While ultimately they won't seal the Tigers' fate either way, they certainly will point to which direction the club are going be travelling in. Not quite 'must win' territory yet, but near as damn it.

Hull City v West Ham United

Marco Silva will welcome back captain Michael Dawson to his squad in some positive injury news for Hull City - just for a chnage. Oumar Niasse is eligible again after the Everton match last time out rendered him unavailable against his parent club. However, City will have to shoulder the huge blow that sees in form and mightily influential Tom Huddlestone missing from the midfield, as the ex-England man begins a three game ban.

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic arrives in East Yorkshire under a cloud, as speculation about his position is rife. Chiefly, because the Hammers are in a poor run of form and haven't won a match since February 4th. No visiting team has ever won this fixture in the Premier League era and Bilic's side won't be helped with the news that top scorer Michail Antonio is ruled out with injury, along with Steven Reid and Pedro Obiang. Ex-Tiger loanee Mark Noble should recover from a dead leg.
