After securing only their second victory of the season in the final game before the recent international break, Hull City were unable to continue their momentum at the weekend when they faced Huddersfield Town.
The Tigers had picked up four points in their previous two matches with a draw against Blackpool being followed up by a 2-0 win when they played Middlesbrough.
But Saturday proved to be a difficult test for Grant McCann’s men, losing 2-0 against the Terriers, even though they dominated the possession throughout the game.
It has been a tough season for Hull City, which is why they sit just a point above the relegation zone with Barnsley and Peterborough United breathing down their necks.
Even though the Tigers won League One in the 2020-21 campaign to earn promotion, adapting to the Championship has proved to be a tough task.
However, they have kept close enough to several of the teams above them and because of that, a win has the potential to see them climb as high as 16th.
Peterborough United finished just two points behind Hull City last season as they enjoyed automatic promotion alongside their upcoming opponents, but they have also found life in a higher division hard.

The visitors could escape the relegation zone themselves if they are victorious on Wednesday depending on other results, and keeping the same distance from Derby County would also be important.
However, Peterborough United have not won in their last four games and only have two to their name for the entire season, with their most recent outing ending in a 2-0 defeat.
Darren Ferguson’s team have only scored in one fixture on their recent run without three points, which has been a big cause of their problems so far in this campaign
