Swansea are enduring a difficult first couple of months in the 2022/23 campaign, with nine points from nine games leaving them in the bottom three. Problems for the Welsh club mainly stem from their inability to keep the ball out of their own net in the latter stages of games. They have conceded more than any other team during the last fifteen minutes of matches and that will need to change if they are to drag themselves out of trouble.
Last time out against league leaders Sheffield United was no different, with the Swans holding their own in the game until The Blades broke on them and scored with the last kick of the game to claim a precious 1-0 victory. The home side do enter this clash as favourites with bookies giving odds of 5/ 6 for a Swansea victory.
Opponents Hull City are in a very poor run of form with just one win in their last five games, compounded by a 3-0 defeat at home to Stoke on Tuesday night. Shipping goals has been a huge problem for the Tigers this campaign, with eighteen, conceded so far which is more than any other side in the division.
There have been positives though with summer signing Óscar Estupiñán winning the Championship player of the month for August due to his goalscoring endeavours, netting seven in nine games so far. They will need him to step up to the mark again if they are to overcome the odds and beat Swansea this weekend. Bookies have Hull down as 3/1 outsiders heading into this clash.
