Bristol City take on the Sky Bet Championship leaders Hull City this Saturday (November 21st) in this televised lunch time kick-off.

HULL CITY
The Tigers are the Sky Bet Championship leaders despite nearest rivals Brighton & Hove Albion still yet to be beaten. Hull boast the division’s meanest defence, conceding just eight goals, while their attack is the second sharpest (26). Steve Bruce’s side have won their last five matches without letting in a goal.



MANAGER
Steve Bruce - Former Manchester United defender who never won an England cap. He took to management with Sheffield United in 1998 before brief spells with Huddersfield Town, Wigan Athletic and Crystal Palace. In his first long-term job, Bruce twice took Birmingham City to the Premier League. He managed Wigan again for a further two seasons before leaving for Sunderland. The 54-year-old joined Hull in 2012 and led the Tigers to the FA Cup final in 2013.

STAR MAN
Abel Hernandez - Uruguay international who has ten goals for his country in 24 caps. The 25-year-old made his name at Palermo where he netted 31 times during his five years at the club. He joined Hull in 2014 for a club record fee of £10m.

OFFICIALS
Paul Tierney is the man in the middle. He will be assisted by Daniel Leach and Neil Radford. Oliver Langford is the fourth official.



TICKETS
This match is all-ticket.



LAST TIME OUT
Hull City 0-0 Bristol City (2013) - Ninety-eight away fans were in attendance to watch City register a draw against Hull at the LC Stadium. The draw helped the Tigers inch closer to promotion while City were already relegated.



LAST SEASON
Premier League: 18th 

FA Cup: Third round (lost to Arsenal) 

Capital One Cup: Third round (lost to West Bromwich Albion)



DID YOU KNOW?

In 1984, Hull City declared they would play in the first ever football match on the moon. Chairman Don Robinson took the squad to NASA’s base in Cape Canaveral during an American tour but admitted he hadn't found a team to play against.
