(Hull captain Andy Dawson can show why the Tigers have been conceding less than a goal a game)
In the Championship, Hull City entertain Watford at the KC Stadium. The Tigers are currently sat in 12th position in this tight league but are only two points off the playoff places with a game in hand on those above them. They are currently on the longest unbeaten run in the league with four wins & three draws in their last seven league games and these results are based on a solid defensive unit making them hard to beat & means the odd goal is usually enough (four 1-0 victories already), that being said they could do with Leicester City loanee striker Martyn Waghorn showing more of the talent he showed as a really promising youngster. Opponents Watford are struggling this season and only sit one place & one point above the relegation places, their current form reads one win, one draw & four defeats in their last six league games with the latest defeat against Leicester on Wednesday night. They have problems at both ends of the pitch which have been highlighted in their last three matches where they have failed to score in any & have conceded eight in the process. This is just the 4th league home game this season for Hull & although they've only scored 4 goals in the 3 games before this we aren't reading too much into it, Hull look to play to their strengths & we can't see Watford halting their side towards the relegation places this weekend so back Hull at a best price of 5/6.
League One has been excellent this season with some players of real quality plying their trade & fans turning out to watch have had plenty to enjoy, there have been just three scoreless games in the last 50 fixtures. MK Dons have an average turnout at their ground of nearly 8,000 & are unbeaten at home though will want to improve on their 3 wins & 4 draws with victory against Scunthorpe United. Last weekend MK went 1-0 up against Bournemouth before falling behind & coming back late on to salvage a 2-2 draw & before that had lost to an in-and-out Oldham side but overall have been pretty solid this season & have dangerous players in Dean Bowditch & the veteran Clinton Morrison who always seem to be involved in creating or putting away chances at this level, borne out by MK's league leading 16 goals scored at home. Scunthorpe have managed just one win away in the league but have gained 4 draws with just 2 defeats, but they have also only gained one win at home & there's a suspicion that they aren't a great side & could struggle against better sides. The Iron will be missing midfielder Andrew Wright after his sending off against Brentford, there will be a temptation for them to play defensively like last weekend but MK Dons are difficult to stop from scoring in front of their home fans & 10/11 about a home win seems more than fair.
