‘Still not convinced’ – Hull City v Fulham prediction: The72

Hull City host Fulham in the Third Round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

It’s been a fairly underwhelming season for the Tigers, who sit 16th in the Championship despite an active summer transfer window.

But Hull are on the up under the guidance of Liam Rosenior and they’re unbeaten in their last five outings, having won their last two as well.

As for Fulham, their return to the top flight has been a resounding success so far. The Cottagers are 8th in the top flight and have picked up some impressive wins, owing largely to the astonishing form of Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The Serbian has ten league goals so far this season and is silencing all doubters as Fulham look set to secure their Premier League status for another season.

Here, a handful of The72’s writer have given their predictions for the game…

Cameron Smart

“Fulham should be one of the teams looking to go far in the FA Cup this season. They’ve shown they have the capability to upset teams in the Premier League and they could be real dark horses in this tournament.

“For that reason, I think they’ll put out a fairly strong team in this one. Hull do carry a threat, and they’ve proven to be better at the back in recent weeks. But I’m still not convinced that they’re good enough at either end to cause a shock here. Quality will shine through and Fulham will surely advance into the Fourth Round.”

Score prediction: Hull City 1-4 Fulham

In what season did David Wagner guide Huddersfield Town to promotion from the Championship?

Luke Phelps

“Hull have definitely improved recently. Back-to-back wins in the league may well have changed their outlook going into the next few weeks and months, but a home game v Fulham is going to be difficult.

“The Cottagers are really impressing in the Premier League this season and I too think that they’ll fancy an extended FA Cup run. I’m backing them to field a strong starting XI but I think Hull will do the same, and give Fulham a really tough game.

“In the end though, I think Fulham will win this one.”

Score prediction: Hull City 0-2 Fulham
