Coral’s bet of the day

  • Abel Hernandez struck in reverse clash win at KC Stadium
  • The Hull striker has an impressive 18 goals this season
  • He has netted first in his last five successful scoring games

Hernandez 4/1 to open the scoring

Hull City will look to leapfrog Burnley back into the Championship’s top spot with victory over Birmingham City tonight, and as part of Coral’s bet of the day, you can back their main marksman Abel Hernandez to help that cause by opening the scoring at St Andrew’s at 4/1.

Blackburn Rovers v Hull City - Sky Bet Championship - Ewood Park

The Hull hitman has been in sizzling form in front of goal this current campaign and has showed no signs of letting up his rampant run, having bagged seven strikes in his last nine outings, including a hat-trick against Charlton Athletic.

Steve Bruce’s trusted frontman has managed to dispatch an impressive 18 goals in all competitions overall this term, and he looks likely of continuing that in his side’s midweek visit to the West Midlands.

In-form Hernandez to give Birmingham blues

In the reverse second tier encounter at the KC Stadium last October, Hernandez struck after 38 minutes to help gift his side an eventual 2-0 triumph on their travels, and history looks set to repeat itself in Birmingham.

During the last five league games in which the prolific Uruguayan poacher has scored, he has opened proceedings, giving an indication of his clinical eye for goal in the early stages of domestic encounters.

Ipswich Town v Hull City - Sky Bet Championship - Portman Road

The Tigers have benefited hugely from their in-form forward’s heroics, having lost just one of 16 matches in which the menacing South American has scored, including

Gary Rowett’s Blues enter this match-up with high-flying Hull on the back of just a single Championship victory in their previous five games, with that win coming against relegation strugglers Bolton Wanderers.

Hernandez will be licking his lips in anticipation for his latest outing, and you can potentially gain a tasty profit by backing him to open the scoring over Birmingham at a promising 4/1 as Coral’s bet of the day!
