Hull City host Plymouth Argyle in their next game this Saturday as they look to build upon their strong season start.
- Hull City are currently 4th in the league
- Hull City's Aaron Connolly is the league's top scorer at the moment
- Plymouth won 6-2 against Norwich City in the last game
Hull City made a strong start to their campaign, but tough challenges lie ahead. Plymouth may be lower in the league than Hull City, but they have played very exciting attacking football.
Plymouth Argyle Form
Although new to the league, Plymouth have shown great spirit, showing courage and not backing away from their natural attacking style of play. The team is currently 12th after three wins, one draw, and four losses so far in the league.
They need to improve on their defensive front, which has been letting them down. Despite scoring 16 goals, they've conceded 13 as well, which is a significant difference. This team is coming off a 6-2 victory over Norwich City, which will give them a big boost going into this game.
Hull City Form
Week after week, Hull City has surprised everyone with their impeccable performances. It is only the start of the season, but they are flying high with 4 wins, 3 draws and only a loss. Last season, Hull City finished 15th, but this season, they are putting themselves in a good position to qualify for the playoffs.
With the signing of names such as Aaron Connolly, Hull City have clicked in attack. The team is an all-rounder with a good balance in attack and defence but still needs to figure out the small details. Hull City will look to continue to be unbeaten at home when they play Plymouth.
There have been only two occasions where Plymouth and Hull City have met in recent times. Hull City has won both times.
The Tigers are not facing any major problems in the camp. However, Greg Docherty, who is nursing a knee injury, and Jacob Greaves, who is suspended, can be absent from this match.
Galloway, Cooper, and Earley are likely to be unavailable for this game due to injuries. Galloway is out, Cooper is nursing a cruciate ligament injury, and Earley has an ankle injury.
The Championship has been dominated by Aaron Connolly this season. A new signing for Hull City this season, Connolly is currently the league's top scorer with 5 goals. His contribution to Hull City is unrivalled. In addition to being a lethal striker, he contributes off the ball as well.
At the moment, Ryan Hardie is tied with Aaron Connolly as the top scorer, and both strikers are going to face off in a mini-fight. He has scored five goals and also assisted three times. Hull City's defenders will be punished heavily if he lets him get even a foot in the box, since he's lethal upfront.
Both Hull City and Plymouth are attacking teams, so this is sure to be an exciting match. As a result of their defence, Hull City looks much better in this game and would be confident of beating Plymouth. Against Hull City, Plymouth can have a strong chance if Plymouth's defence holds up as they did against Norwich.
