Burnley v Hull City: Visitors could win it in the second half

| 07.11.2014

The wait for a first Premier League win of the season goes on for Burnley, as the Clarets sit languishing at the bottom of the Premier League table, and unfortunately for them, we can’t see that changing this weekend.

They welcome a Hull side enjoying a decent campaign to date, with Steve Bruce making a number of inspired signings for the KC Stadium outfit.

With a trip across the Pennines in store, Ladbrokes cannot separate the sides, with the pair priced up at 17/10 for victory and a draw at 9/4.

Ben Stones has cast his eye over the stats and scoured the markets to give you the three best bets at Turf Moor.

Hull to score two or three goals @ 13/8

Only QPR have conceded more goals than Burnley so far this season, and a hard-hitting Tigers attack could spell trouble for a lacklustre home defence.

Sean Dyche’s men have gifted exactly two or three goals in their last four matches and let in four in the tie before that.

Before Hull bumped into the decent duo of Liverpool and Southampton, they had found the net twice in each of their last five games. Judging by the form, this could go the same way.

Mohamed Diame to score anytime @ 10/3

Before the two aforementioned blanks against Liverpool and Southampton, Diame had been flying since his move back north.

The Senegalese midfielder found the net four times in his first five appearances for Hull, and has flourished with more license to get forward.

And with the former West Ham man liking a long shot, he could be well priced to continue his impressive scoring record.

2nd Half Result – Hull @ 19/10

The second 45 minutes has been where the Tigers have flourished on the road this season.

Five of their six goals away from home have come in the latter period of the match, and they clearly relish a fight to the final whistle.

Conversely, Burnley fans will have wished they stayed at the bar at half-time a lot this season (or maybe even before kick-off), with the Clarets providing them with just one moment of brightness at Turf Moor in the second half so far.

The visitors could dominate the later events, even if they already have an early lead.
