Hull City vs Norwich City Prediction
Hull City will look to maintain their unbeaten run for as long as they can before the competition tightens in the division. They will also enjoy the advantage of playing against a top rival when their opponents are not in form.
Norwich have struggled in all their encounters so far. Even their win against Birmingham came on penalties. They have looked patchy up front and their defense has lacked disciplined. They will have to seriously raise their standards to finally pick up some form in the division.
While Norwich still boast a superior squad profile, given the current form of both the teams, a draw is on the cards.
