Having gone down in division, Hull City has consistently failed the promotion to the English first division and this year once again should not achieve that goal. We remember that the visiting club lost against Middlesbrough, by 1-0, in the last day of the championship. Despite the irregular results, the team guided by Nigel Adkins is the owner of great quality in counterattack and offensive offensive balls, however, it fails a lot in the finalization. However, we emphasize that the right end Jarrod Bowen is the best gunner of Hull City, with 20 goals scored. Out of this game due to physical problems are Kingsley and MacDonald.
