Good evening and welcome to our live coverage of Hull City's home clash with Rochdale at the KCOM Stadium.

City come into the game on the back of a morale-boosting 3-0 win at struggling AFC Wimbledon on Saturday, courtesy of a penalty each for Josh Magennis and Mallik Wilks, sandwiched either side of a clever Reece Burke finish on the stroke of half-time.

At home, though, things have been tough for the Tigers in recent weeks having lost their last two both by a goal to nil with the most recent come a week ago against Ipswich Town, a game in which City failed to muster a single shot on target.

If automatic promotion is to remain a realistic proposition, then three points this evening followed by three on Saturday when Bristol Rovers visit the KCOM Stadium is a must.

We’ll bring you all the build-up to the 7pm kick-off followed by all the reaction from the manager.

Gooooooooooooooood afternoon!

Here we again, another matchday coming quickly on the back of Saturday's long trip down to the capital. Rochdale at the KCOM tonight and the need for a home is paramount.

Between now and kick-off at 7pm, we'll have all the build-up including team news at six.
