Fresh off a humiliating 6-0 Cup defeat against Norwich City, Bournemouth visit the MKM Stadium to face Hull City in the EFL Championship on Saturday.

The hosts have failed to pick up a point since their opening-day victory over Preston North End and will be looking to end their four-game losing streak.

Hull City’s string of disappointing performances continued last Saturday as they suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Fulham.

In an entertaining contest at the Craven Cottage Stadium, Aleksandar Mitrović and Fabio Carvalho were on target to hand Fulham their third straight victory.

Hull City have now lost their last three games in the EFL Championship, conceding six goals and scoring nine.

They also suffered a first-round exit from the EFL Cup when they were beaten on penalties by Wigan Athletic two weeks ago.

With three points from their opening four league games, the Tigers are currently 19th in the standings.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth were denied their third win on the bounce last Saturday as they were held to a 2-2 draw by a resilient Blackpool side.

Dominic Solanke hit a first-half brace to put the Cherries two goals up, but James Husband and Jerry Yates scored in the second half to help Blackpool force a share of the spoils.

This was followed by a 6-0 thumping at the hands of Norwich City in round two of the EFL Cup last time out.

Head coach Scott Parker will hope his side can quickly bounce back from that humiliating performance and maintain their impressive league form.
