Caretaker manager Keith Downing has taken over for the interim period and will be hoping to notch up his first win in charge. In their last outing The Baggies lost to Cardiff City, their fourth consecutive league defeat. That result dropped them to 16th in the Premier League and extended their winless run to six matches.
West Brom are only narrowly avoiding the relegation zone, while Hull have performed strongly this season and sit in 12th. The Tigers’ home record has seen them concede just three goals in eight fixtures at the KC Stadium. However away from home they have failed to perform consistently and have lost four of their last five games on the road.
The two sides have only played each other twice in the Premier League, with Hull winning 3-0 at The Hawthorns in October 2008 before a 2-2 draw in the return fixture.
