Hull City form and stats

Overall League One stats at home this season for Hull City, who have the most scored goals (49) in League One, are 8-2-4 (wins-draw-losses).

The home team returns to KCOM Stadium after being equal after 90 minutes with Doncaster Rovers (placed 4th) on their last time out; the League One game ended 3-3. In the game before, an away victory match versus Wigan Athletic with a 5-0 scoreline.

Opportunity lost for Hull in the Doncaster Rovers match as a lead 2-0 was lost and what looked like a victory ended in a draw. As you can tell by the result above, the goals flowed freely in the previous game and the stadium rocked. Could there be another goal fest today?

The hosts are favourites to win this game, with an estimated chance of about 55-60% of that outcome. Earlier Hull City matches with similar probabilities have ended with one win, zero draws and zero defeats (from one game).

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Hull City as they are travelling to their away game against AFC Wimbledon in the League One. That match is four days after this one.

Hull has scored 15 league goals at home this season, in 14 matches. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. Hull are not conceding a lot of goals here at KCOM Stadium in the league, averaging less than one per game. The total is 8 from 14 matches.

Ipswich Town form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team on their League One travels is 4 wins, 3 draws and 4 defeats.

The attacking players of Ipswich have been feeble for some time now, the team not scoring a league goal in the last 264 minutes. The Ipswich goalkeeper Tomas Holy is collecting clean sheets like a laundry worker. It's been 220 league minutes without conceding a goal, and counting.

Ipswich's last game ended in a draw, the home match versus Oxford United that finished 0-0. A draw for Ipswich Town before that, at their own venue hosting Northampton Town (0-0).

As mentioned above, the odds for this match puts the home team as favourites. Perhaps this eases the pressure on the away team, who are capable of producing an upset here on a good day. Looking at earlier matches with similar odds and Ipswich Town playing away, we found three games. Results were zero away wins, one draw and two home wins.

The visitors are returning home after this fixture, hosting Doncaster Rovers in just four days.

The visiting Ipswich Town have scored more than one goal per away game in the league so far. The grand total is 14 goals from 11 games. Ipswich have conceded 13 goals in these away matches.

Head 2 Head

This is the result when the teams met earlier this season; Ipswich Town - Hull City 0-3. Last ten meetings between the teams: Hull City won eight, Ipswich Town won zero and two draws. seven games with over 2,5 goals, three matches with two goals or less.
