Saturday Stats: Hull City vs Cardiff City

28 September 2019
Saturday means it’s time for some statistics as we look ahead to this afternoon’s Sky Bet Championship home game against Cardiff City.

With the focus firmly on today’s clash with Neil Warnock’s side, we take a look at the game from a statistical perspective.

Hull City

Hull City have lost just one of their last five home games against Cardiff City (W2 D2 L1) – although the Welsh side did claim all three points on their previous visit to the KCOM Stadium in April 2018.

After registering a first clean sheet of the season away at Luton last weekend, the Tigers will be aiming to end of a run of nine home games (W3 D3 L3) without preventing their opponents from finding the back of the net – with their last shut-out at the KCOM Stadium coming in a 2-0 win against Birmingham City in March.

Kamil Grosicki has scored in his past three Championship appearances – and is the only player to register 10+ goals and 10+ assists in the division in 2019 (10 goals & 10 assists).

Only Barnsley (129) have committed more fouls than Grant McCann’s side (120) in the opening eight games of the 2019/20 Championship campaign.

Both teams have scored in six of the Tigers’ eight league fixtures so far this season.

Cardiff City

Cardiff City are looking to win back-to-back away league matches against the Tigers for the first time since October 1998.

Neil Warnock’s side are winless in their four away league games this season (D2 L2), with their last victory coming on the road coming against Manchester United at Old Trafford in May (2-0).

The Bluebirds have made the least amount of passes (2,247) in the Championship so far this season.

Only Leeds United (140), West Brom (126) and Queens Park Rangers (124) have had more shots than Cardiff City (116) in the opening eight games of the 2019/20 Championship campaign.

The Bluebirds are looking to secure successive league victories for the first time since February.


Meetings in all competitions between the two sides, with the Tigers winning 24, drawing 20 and losing 21.

There has been less than 2.5 goals scored in five of the past six meetings between the two sides – with the only exception being the Tigers’ 4-0 Premier League win at the Cardiff City Stadium back in February 2014.
