Leonid Slutsky paid the price for his failure to lift Hull City up from the bottom half of the Championship table and thus far his successor Nigel Adkins has also found the task of steering the Tigers clear of the bottom three pretty hard going. As things stand, Hull sit outside the relegation zone purely on goal-difference alone and this is a far-from-satisfactory situation for a side which was plying its trade in the Premier League last season.
Nevertheless they can take their minds away from their league worries this weekend when they face fellow Championship side Nottingham Forest at the KCOM Stadium although we're pretty sure that Adkins could do without this unwelcome distraction.
The Tigers' woes were hardly lifted by their hugely disappointing 1-0 defeat at fellow strugglers Sunderland last time out and they are in for a tough test when they host Leeds United on Tuesday evening. As such it would be no massive surprise were Adkins to ring a few changes ahead of what for him is almost certainly pretty low priority affair.

Nottingham Forest haven't exactly set the Championship alight this season - they weren't really expected to - however they sit in the relatively comfortable position of 14th in the table and a decent cup run certainly wouldn't go amiss. Their shock 4-2 win over Arsenal in the last round of the competition was a massive morale-booster and while they went down 1-0 in their subsequent outing at home to Aston Villa, they head into this weekend's clash on the back of an excellent 2-0 win over runaway Championship leaders Wolverhampton wanderers.
Aitor Karanka's men are looking pretty good at the moment and it would be no huge surprise were they to head home with the win in the bag on Saturday afternoon and we'll be siding with them to do just that at generous odds of 19/10 with Betway Free bets.
