Abel Hernandez has scored 15 league goals in 24 appearances for Hull City this term.

After being relegated on the last day of the Premier League season last year, Hull are looking to make a swift return to the top flight and at the moment they are second in the standings. Manager Steve Bruce has won the division three times and will be looking to repeat previous successes during this campaign.

His side have been defensively solid and have conceded just 19 goals in total this season. After taking 21 points out of a possible 30 from their last ten Championship fixtures, few would bet against the Tigers still being in contention when the season draws to its conclusion.
