They may reside at the opposite ends of the league table but neither has been in good form lately.
The Hoops, sitting in fourth place and contending for direct promotion, are winless in their last three games, including defeats in their last two without scoring.
Their position in the table hasn't changed but have certainly lost ground to the teams residing above them.
The Tigers, on the other hand, are down in 20th and winless in their last four games, losing thrice.

Queens Park Rangers vs Hull City Team News
Lee Wallace could be out for some time after sustaining a groin injury against Millwall.
Sam McCallum is likely to come in for him at the left wing-back spot after three months out with his own injury layoff.
Rob Dickie is also unavailable through suspension as he picked up his 10th booking of the season in their last game, opening the door for Dion Sanderson to replace him in the defense.
Seny Dieng has sat on the bench in both their games since returning from the Africa Cup of Nations, so head coach Mark Warburton could reinstate him between the sticks.
Injured: Lee Wallace
Suspended: Rob Dickie
Lewie Coyle suffered a hamstring injury last time out and will miss their Saturday clash. But on the bright side, Mallik Wilks may return to the squad after a two-month injury layoff.
Injured: Lewie Coyle
