Hull City vs. Middlesbrough: Premier League – Match Preview

Two of the Premier League’s bottom three meet on Wednesday evening in a huge relegation fixture.

Hull City’s impressive form under Marco Silva continued as they rallied from a goal down to beat West Ham on Saturday.

With five minutes remaining, the on loan Andrea Ranocchia scored the winner to move Hull to within a point of safety.

Middlesbrough’s long wait for a win continued as they drew 0-0 away at relegation rivals Swansea City on Sunday.

Swansea were the better side, but Rudy Gestede missed a glorious chance for Boro in the final minutes.
