Hard task at Hull

It is in the long-term interests of the club to stay in the Championship. Any future owner would then have a more viable club to build up again.

Charlton face a hard task playing promotion chasing Hull tomorrow, although our record against them is a reasonably good one. Hull have just one win in their last eight fixtures against the Addicks (D4 L3). Charlton's loss away to Hull in February 2013 is their only defeat there in nine visits (W4 D4).

However, Charlton have scored the fewest away goals in the Championship this season (7). Since winning back to back games in November, the Addicks have gone nine without a win, with five of those contests ending in defeat.

The Hull Daily Mail comments about 'how the Tigers struggle to put teams away. It's a bit of an issue and one which Bruce himself raised after the game. A big win could help change that mentality and given the mess Charlton Athletic are in at the minute that win could come tomorrow at the KC Stadium.'

Although I think we will lose, I don't think it will be a Huddersfield style rout. But we have to tighten up at set pieces.

The odds reflect current realities: Hull 3/10, Draw 4/1, Charlton 10/1.

Losing Kashi to injury has been a huge blow through our season, he was at times running the show, hopefully poyet will sort out our midfield helping the defence and creating opportunities to attack.
