Hull vs Northampton – Hull to score (15:00 Kick Off)
The League one leaders face a relegation threatened Northampton side as they look to continue their electric run of form.
* Hull are unbeaten in 8 league games, winning 6 of those
* They’ve scored in all 8 of those games
* They’re the second top scorers in the league with 65 goals scored
* Northampton are winless in 12 on the road
* They last won before Christmas
* No side has taken fewer away points and won fewer away games than today’s visitors
Only Peterborough have outscored the tigers this season and that’s largely down to the 7-0 drubbing they gave Accrington last week.
Mallik Wilks stole all 3 points for Hull on Friday as he found the next in injury time against Crewe, that was his 18th goal this season. Keep an eye on him in this one, he’s someone who’s likely to have plenty of eyes on him with a view to a summer move.
Northampton have improved somewhat since Keith Curle was sacked. However the fact still remains that they’re in the relegation dogfight. They’re teetering just above the relegation zone and they’re only clinging on on account of their home form, their away record is diabolical.
Hull are near enough at full strength for this one so we shouldn’t have any issues. There’s big clashes elsewhere in League One which provides a great opportunity for Hull to continue their title assault.
I see Hull winning this game, no doubt. I simply cannot see how they fail to score.
Zulte vs Eupen – Over 1.5 goals (15:00 Kick Off)
Off to one of my favourite hunting grounds for goals, The Belgian Jupiler League, just 3 points separates these sides in what looks to be a ding dong affair.
* Zulte see an average of 3.4 goals per match
* 27/31 of their games have seen over 1.5 goals
* Their last 11 straight league games have seen over 1.5 goals with 10 of them having over 2.5
* Eupen see an average of 2.8 goals per game
* 28/31 of their games have seen over 1.5 goals
* Just 1 of their last 16 league outings has produced under 1.5 goals
After a rotten start to the season Zulte have pulled themselves free of any relegation worries and are now right in amongst the fight for Europe. Just 5 points separates today’s opponents in 13th and Leuven in 6th so a result here could be absolutely crucial for the season as a whole.
Zulte have plenty of ability going forward with the likes of top scorer Gianni Bruno. A real legend in Belgium he’s having a cracking season with 17 goals to his name and has recovered from a slight knock against Anderlecht. Former Middlesbrough and Burnley man Jelle Vossen provides further striking experience too.
Despite their ability going forward they absolutely leak goals, only bottom clip Beveren and 7th placed Beerschot have conceded more goals than Zulte.
Same goes for Eupen here, a win would be huge. That’s what makes this game even better than just phenomenal goal stats. There’s so much on the line, at some stage someone will have to push forward and I expect a wide open game from the off with the last fixture finishing 3-2.
Eupen’s front 3 have produced 26 goals this season, with Smail Prevljak leading the charts with 13. Jullien Ngoako (6) and Knowledge Musona (7) have helped to contribute too.
After multiple yellow cards, key centre half Jonathan Heris will miss this one. That only adds to how open this game has the potential to be.
