Venue: KCOM Stadium (25400 seats)

With the nervous opening game out of the way it’s time for the second League One game of the season. Hull City look forward to welcoming Crewe Alexandra in front of their home support.

There haven't been much time to rest for the hosts, as they played a Carabao Cup match only three days ago. That game was an away game at Leeds United, so at least Hull are thankful to return home in this one. Game on!

Hull City form and stats

Hull City are very eager to stop a potential losing streak at KCOM Stadium, having lost their two previous games here.

Hull shared the glory with Leeds United (after extra-time, 8-9 on penalties) in their last match, an away game that ended all square 1-1. Before that match, a League One win away at Gillingham.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Hull have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found eight games) they have won five times, drawn two and lost one.

Last season, Hull City's league statistics were 12 wins, 9 draws and 25 losses, resulting in a 24th position in the Championship. Over these 46 matches they scored 57 goals and conceded 87. Playing at home last season Hull City managed 7-3-13 (win-draw-lost) with 29 goals and 37 conceded.
