Tom Huddlestone confident on Hull City to Qualify for Premier League
Tom Huddlestone remains defiant that Hull City will be able to qualify for the Premier League despite their inability to recover the winning form.
After being in a sparkling run during the first half of the campaign, the club has failed to receive in the latter. The likes of Burnley, Brighton, and Middlesbrough are now seen as the favourites for the automatic promotion spots, while Hull may have to settle for a place in the play-offs. This is unlikely to guarantee the club that they would return to the Premier League, but Huddlestone remains confident that the second spot remains up for grabs even now.
Hull City secured a fine win over Ipswich Town a few weeks ago. Since then, they have been on a rotten run of form and have taken only three points from a maximum possible 15. A major problem for the team has been scoring goals and this is only likely to increase with the added pressure in the business end of the campaign. Prior to the win against Ipswich, the club suffered only one defeat in the league in 2016. Since that victory, though, they have already lost numerous matches and have also gone out of the FA Cup after a replay with Arsenal.
“We have a massive nine games left.If we can get on a decent run, getting six or seven wins on the spin, then we won’t be too far off. It is still all to play for in this league.I firmly believe we can get those wins. If we can put a run on for those six or seven games to take it down to the last two then we will be in with a good chance.The opportunity has not gone. It is still all to play for. There are 27 points still up for grabs,” said Huddlestone.
