Our prediction for this Championship match:
After recording a 3-2 win over Watford at the weekend, Queens Park Rangers will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Hull City in the Championship round 7. The Hoops did well to put an end to their three-game winless run, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence, and, as a result, the odds for home win have been dropping. Both Jake Clarke-Salter and Taylor Richards are sidelined with injuries, while Albert Adomah is pushing for a start after scoring the winner at Vicarage Road.
The Tigers, on the other hand, have been performing above expectations in the new Championship campaign, with the team climbing to third place thanks to a 3-2 win over Coventry City. A man to watch in the away team will be Oscar Estupinan, who scored a hat-trick against Coventry, while all Ozan Tufan, Brandon Fleming, and Dogukan Sinik should miss out with injuries. Anyhow, home win should be considered as QPR have turned their Loftus Road into a real fortress.

Hull City are a professional football club that was founded back in 1904. The Tigers used to play their home games at Boothferry Park, but they moved to the KC Stadium in 2002. The stadium capacity is 24,450.
Hull impressed in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, as a result, they returned to the English Premier League. Hull City fans consider Leeds United their main rivals, but Sheffield United are regarded as Hull’s fierce rivals as well. Steve Bruce took over the reins at the club in 2012 and the experienced tactician helped the team book a place in the 2013/2014 FA Cup final, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Tigers in the title decider.
