PREVIEW: Hull City v Middlesbrough

From somewhere, anywhere in fact, new breath needs breathing into this ailing club of ours. Hull City are a forlorn mess. Weak and feeble from years of wanton neglect by the owners. The Allams may like to call us the 'best run club in the EFL' on paper, but the facts are; this is not the club the people want. Soulless, dispirited and rounded off with complete alienation from it's very being. Another glaring example of this will be the barren looking stadium in the home end this Saturday.

Can City abate the Boro?

Currently, Nigel Adkins is the latest Hull City boss to be hung out to dry by the Allams. While he is afforded some sympathy for his current predicament, the Tigers chief could still improve on the matters he can effect, like picking a decent team and employing some tactics that can actually take an opponent to task. Worryingly, even though he's only 18 - and it feels like the weight of the entire club is on his young shoulders - midfielder Dan Batty is unlikely to be fit. Neither is Evandro or Ondrej Mazuch.

Meanwhile, Middlesbrough manager Tony Pulis took the luxury of making 11 changes in midweek for the cup victory over Preston North End and arrives in Hull with a fully rested squad and no fresh injury concerns. While the visitors are looking to claim top spot from our next opponents Leeds United in three days time, the Tigers by contrast, are hovering just a single point above the relegation zone. Like anyone is actually surprised by this...
