Hull City will host Sunderland on Tuesday night with both teams in need of a win. Steve Bruce's Hull CIty side are just a point ahead of Sunderland in the league table and only four points above the relegation zone. Hull have won two of three and moved out of the drop zone. The tigers have to win their home games to get themselves clear of the relegation battle. Jelavich and Ndoye have both started to find some form of late and the two must continue that strong form if Hull are to avoid the drop.
Sunderland themselves have struggled of late and have fallen back down the table. Gus Poyet's side are now only three points from the drop zone and are really struggling to find the net. With only two goals in eight games and no wins in eight the Black Cats are in free fall. The only thing keeping Sunderland from the relegation zone has actually been the struggles of the teams below them. Fletcher, Johnson, Wickham and Defoe will be the key figures if Sunderland are to get out of this.
With this game representing a huge six pointer in the relegation battle there will be plenty of nerves around tomorrow night. The unders look a solid bet as both of these teams have had struggles scoring goals and both are actually solid defensively. Nine of the last eleven Hull games have gone under and six of the last nine Sunderland games have gone under.
