These two sides will meet for the second time in two weeks this Tuesday after Hull City beat Accrington Stanley 3-0 at home.

Grant McCann's men will be hoping for a repeat performance this week that could push them three points clear at the top of League One.

However, the hosts will be looking to avenge their recent loss as they continue their push for the play-offs.

  • Team news

John Coleman has had a week to prepare for this rematch after no game at the weekend.

The only notable miss is Cameron Burgess who was sent off after a second yellow in this reverse fixture.

The Tigers have no fresh injury concerns from their last game against Portsmouth in which McCann used the same side that beat Stanley 3-0.

A hectic schedule may cause the boss to change things up but with a 4-0 and 3-0 win in their last two games, he may not want to change a winning formula.

  • Predicted lineups 


Savin, Nottingham, Hughes, Sama, Rodgers, Butcher, Conneely, McConville, Pritchard, Charles, Bishop.


Long, Coyle, Greaves, Jones, Elder, Smallwood, Honeyman, Docherty, Wilks, Lewis-potter, Whyte.

  • Ones to watch

Stanley's key threat is Dion Charles who has six in 16 in the league this season. The striker averages 2.5 shots per game and has a pass percentage rate of 60.4%.

His ability to run at defences is a key attribute that helps Coleman's men progress forward and he will need to find that quality against Hull.

The visitors have George Honeyman as their key player this season. He has three goals and nine assists this season and has been named man of the match six times this season.

His playmaking ability gives the Hull frontline the perfect service whilst his set-pieces have troubled many defences in the league. A good showing in the reverse fixture followed by a superb performance against Porstmouth shows his recent form.

  • Previous meetings

As previously stated the last two sides face was this season when Hull left the KCOM Stadium 3-0 winners.

The only other times these two faced off in the last decade was in a League Cup fixture in 2015 which ended 2-2, with Hull advancing to the next round on penalties.
