Hull take on Stoke on Sunday 24th August, 2014, with kickoff at 13:30. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.

Stoke will have been disappointed to lose to Villa on the opening day of their season and slightly frustrated to be away at Hull, but things could always be worse and their hosts for today are not in perfect nick. Having just returned from a European trip, the Tigers are beginning to understand the fatigue and pressure that comes with continental performance, and this game will test the legs of a few in their squad.

If Stoke lose it will mean not just a poor start, but potentially a battle to regain a spot they can work from, and if they fail a relegation scrap.
