Hull City host Middlesbrough at the MKM Stadium in the EFL Championship on Saturday, with both sides experiencing contrasting campaigns so far.

Hull City have struggled in the league and are currently 23rd in the table. Grant McCann's side have lost three of their last five games, scoring only two goals in the process. The Tigers have a huge task ahead of them if they are to take anything away from the game against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Middlesbrough, on the other hand, snapped their two-game losing streak with a 2-0 win against Sheffield United last time out. Neil Warnock's side are currently 12th in the table and a win against Hull City on Saturday could potentially take them to eighth.
