Doncaster Rovers vs Hull City

KC Stadium, April 16, 3pm

EXPECTATIONS at Hull have gone through a rollercoaster ride this term following relegation from the top flight.

The Tigers looked on the verge of deep financial woe and were tipped to struggle until new owners and good form saw them quickly become play off outsiders.

They could not maintain the run required and now need a major effort to sneak into the top six.

Their record reads like one of a mid-table outfit with as many wins as defeats.


IT is unsurprising that Matty Fryatt opted to join former boss Nigel Pearson at Hull in January in a £1.2m deal.

After all, the 25-year-old rose to prominence once Pearson arrived at Leicester.

Fryatt struggled to adapt after switching from Walsall but he ignited in the League One title winning season, becoming the first Foxes player to hit 20 goals pre- Christmas.

He adapted well to life in the Championship but saw last season end early after breaking his jaw in a clash with Rovers skipper Brian Stock.

It appeared Fryatt was being edged out at Leicester this term after being relegated to largely substitute appearances.

But when Hull came calling with a £1.2m bid in January, Fryatt made the switch and has netted seven goals since.
