Tough game for us. That and my office are coming down to watch the game (tend to do so once a year) and everytime they come we lose, think it will be very tough for us.

We've looked quite solid at the back of late, the odd moment at Charlton aside, so we probably stand a chance, but I think they will shade it. Odubajo to hit us back with a goal. 2-1 to them (Odubajo, Hernandez, Judge)

Likely team is unchanged:

Button
Yennaris, Dean, Tarkowski, Bidwell
Diagouraga
Swift, Woods, McCormack, Judge
Djuricin

Won't happen till the end of the season - Carsley has the job until then, then he will go.

Pretty fair result that. Hull are the best side I've seen this season. We were the better team in the first half and probably should have gone in ahead but in the second half they stepped it up and were comfortable winners in the end. To have the depth in your squad to be able to bring on Diame and Huddlestone is pretty impressive.

Seems like everyone says Hull are the best team they've seen. They were certainly excellent against us. Very solid at the back and plenty of threat going forward. Champions imo.

Brucie knows this league like the back of his hand too.

Should be winning the league with the manager and players they have. I don't think anyone will be too disappointed losing to Hull, anything against them for most teams will be a bonus.

Pretty happy with the evenings work, even though we lost 2-0. Thought we were brilliant in the first half, couldn't remember a shot on target from Hull, our back 4 were dominant. We managed to work 2-3 good openings as well, perhaps a better team would have finished them off. Into the break and Hull didn't look anything special, and we easily could have been ahead.

Second half Hull came out and were much the better team. Caught us on the break a few times, their passing just seemed a little quicker and more accurate than the first half. They still pretty much only had chances after they took the lead, but it was a great move that gave them the lead.

On another day, we would have won that game, which gives me a lot of confidence. There isn't much between the top and bottom teams in this league, we just lack a little penetration at times, which we would have had if Judge played. Also getting McEachran, Macleod and Jota back from injury should help in that regard.
