Numbers game: Hull v Swans

22nd December 2018
First team

Swansea City look to continue their winning run when they face Hull City at the KCOM Stadium this evening (5.30pm).

Here we look at the key numbers heading into the game.

Swans

6 – Swansea’s record away at Hull has given supporters little to shout about. The Swans have lost six of their last seven when they have travelled to face the Tigers, scoring just two goals along the way.

10 – The number of goals Swansea have conceded away from home so far this campaign, only Middlesbrough have a better defensive record on their travels.

11 – Swansea drew five of their first 11 games back in the Championship, but they have not shared the spoils with an opponent in the 11 games since.

32 – Swansea’s current points tally is just one behind the 33 they accumulated over the entirety of last season. Victory today would see them surpass it before Christmas and with half the season still to go.

Hull

2 – The Tigers have lost just two of their last 10 games, having suffered defeat in eight of their first 12 fixtures.

3 – Nigel Adkins’ side have kept three clean sheets in their last four home games, that’s as many as they had managed in their previous 14 at the KCOM Stadium.

6 – Former Manchester United, Tottenham, Sunderland, Cardiff and Crystal Palace striker Fraizer Campbell has been a big factor in Hull’s recent upturn, he has scored six goals in his last seven appearances.

21 – Hull City’s home record of 12 points from 11 games is amongst the lowest tallies in the Championship. Only Reading, Ipswich and Bolton have picked up fewer points on their own turf.
