Plymouth Argyle and Hull City will trade tackles at Home Park on Saturday, with three points on the line in League One.

The hosts come into this game on the back of a 3-0 defeat away to Shrewsbury Town. A second-half brace from Shaun Whalley helped the Shrews pick up all three points.

Hull City were emphatic in their 3-0 victory over Northampton Town on home turf. Callum, Elder, Keane Lewis-Potter and Gavin Whyte all got on the scoresheet to fire the Tigers to victory.

That win helped Hull City maintain their position at the summit of the standings as they seek immediate promotion to the EFL Championship. Plymouth Argyle are relatively comfortable in 16th place, having garnered 52 points from 40 games.

Plymouth Argyle vs Hull City Head-to-Head

The two sides have clashed on 75 occasions in the past and Hull City have the much better head-to-head record.

The East Yorkshire outfit have 33 wins and 19 draws to their name, while Plymouth Argyle were victorious in 23 previous games.

Their most recent meeting came in October 2020 when a 10th-minute strike by Hakeeb Adelakun was enough to give Hull City a 1-0 win on matchday four of the current campaign.

Hull City are one of the form teams in the league and are unbeaten in nine Championship games. Plymouth Argyle have picked up just two wins from their last nine league games.
