The Tigers remain in 6th position in the table. They are two points inside the top six with 10 games left to play of the season.

As for Leicester City, they remain top of the tree as they aim for the title. The Foxes won 1-0 away at Sunderland in their last outing.

Striker Jamie Vardy scored their winner at the Stadium of Light. Enzo Maresca’s side are only three points above 2nd place Ipswich Town.

Here, a handful of our writers make their predictions for the game…

Harry Mail

Hull City didn’t play badly against Birmingham City but just couldn’t find another goal and were punished. The Tigers have some decent players and I fancy them to something against Leicester City as they strangely play better against stronger sides.

Liam Rosenior’s side are tough to beat at the moment as they chase down promotion. They are unbeaten in their last six games and have lost just once in their last nine.

The Foxes need their win at Sunderland after three defeats in a row. However, I think they might drop points here at the MKM Stadium.”

Hull City vs Leicester City prediction: 1-1

Leicester City will be glad to have got back to winning ways against Sunderland. However, it was far from a vintage performance, and with this PSR saga now rumbling in the background, you just wonder if the pressure will get to them.

Hull City are a dangerous side but their home form of late hasn’t been great. That still means Leicester are likely favourites, but I can see them slipping up again here.

“Hull have the flair to unsettle the visitors and with a quick start, I can see them claiming a big win here. Another huge blow for Leicester.”

Hull City vs Leicester City prediction: 2-1
