Hull City take on Tottenham Hotspur in the weekend Premier League fixture at the KC Stadium on Saturday.

Where to Watch

Kick-off is set for 3:00pm GMT. Catch the highlights on Match of the Day on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:30pm GMT.


Hull City come into this game on the back of a 1-0 defeat against Crystal Palace during the midweek league fixture. Jason Puncheon scored the only goal of the game in the first-half to ensure the visitors left Selhurst Park empty-handed.

The Tigers have only won a single game in their last 10 league matches. Steve Bruce's side are languishing in the 13<sup>th spot in the league table with 23 points from as many matches, four points above the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Spurs will be eager to bounce back from their 5-1 defeat during the midweek league clash against Manchester City at White Hart Lane. Etienne Capoue netted the north London club's solitary goal in the second-half as five different City players managed to put the ball inside the goal beyond Hugo Lloris.

Prior to their defeat against City, they were on an unbeaten run of six matches in the league scoring 14 goals and winning five out of them. Tim Sherwood will be keen on securing all three points against the Tigers to maintain the pressure on fellow top four hunters Liverpool.

Spurs currently sit fifth in the league table with 43 points after 23 matches, three less than the Reds's tally of 46. A win against Hull on Saturday will not be enough to propel them into the fourth due to the Merseyside club's vastly superior goal difference.

What Managers Say

Steve Bruce: "Spurs are a really good side. If you look at their squad on paper and how much they've invested in the summer, they're a threat wherever they go. But it is about us and whether or not we can play well enough to cause them a few problems. They will be seeing this as a fixture where they can bounce back straight away so I don't think it has done us any favours."

Tim Sherwood: "We know their strengths and we know it will be tough. Hull haven't had the best of runs recently but throughout the season they've picked up good results and beaten some big teams, so we have to be aware of that. On any given day, they can beat the best. We have to match them for commitment and hopefully our quality will shine through."
