The two clubs continue last year’s trend of being neck and neck after both started the season with a win and a loss, though pressure will be on Brentford’s strikers to hit the back of the net after scoring just one compared to Hull’s three.

Brentford finished just two points above Hull last season, but while the London club spent a massive £25.8 million this transfer window, Hull spent next to nothing with transfer expenses of just below £400,000.

Hull ended last season with a negative goal difference of minus two while Brentford scored 14 more goals than they conceded.
