Live on Sky Sports: Wolverhampton Wanderers v Hull City

15 August 2015

Wolverhampton Wanderers’ match against Hull City rounds off Sky Sports’ coverage of The Football League for the weekend.

Hull travel to Molineux for a 12:00pm kick-off on Sunday and the match is intriguing for a large number of reasons.

The promise of goals

Wolves and Hull arguably have two of the most threatening front lines in the Sky Bet Championship.

The pair are loaded with options in attacking positions, and their goalscoring prowess has already been shown this campaign – with both sides scoring twice on opening day.

Wolves are likely to line-up with Nouha Dicko and Benik Afobe up top on Sunday, and Hull will have to be wary of their threat.

The duo scored a combined 47 goals during 2014/15 and they will be a partnership worth keeping an eye on this time around.

Hull, meanwhile, went with Chuba Akpom and Nikica Jelavic as their strikeforce for their maiden match of the new campaign and they helped them to a 2-0 win over Huddersfield.

Jelavic is a striker who has a proven record of hitting the back of the net even in the Premier League, while Akpom is starting to make a name for himself.

The youngster has joined Hull on loan from Arsenal and, after two goals in his first two games, there are high hopes for his future.

How’s the season been so far?

Both sides go into the game having remained unbeaten over their first two matches.

Wolves beat Blackburn Rovers 2-1 to get their Sky Bet Championship campaign off to a good start and they defeated Newport County by the same scoreline in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.

Hull, meanwhile, picked up an aforementioned 2-0 victory over Huddersfield in their first match of the season, but their progress in the Capital One Cup was not straightforward.

Sky Bet League 2 opponents Accrington Stanley gave them a thorough test, but Steve Bruce’s side eventually came through on penalties.


Wolves and Hull have generally been very evenly matched, with the Tigers only just edging the overall head-to-head record.

Hull have claimed 26 wins compared to Wolves’ 23 triumphs during the 62 previous meetings between the pair.

The most recent time the two clashed was in the 2012/13 campaign, and Wolves were able to win 1-0 that day with Kevin Doyle grabbing the crucial goal.
