There is little left for either club to play for at this point of time
Bristol City will host Hull City in the penultimate round of EFL Championship action on Saturday.
Both clubs have guaranteed Championship safety in recent weeks, which inevitably makes the fixture rather pointless in the overall context of the league. If either of the two clubs manage to win their remaining two games, they will at best swap their positions in the overall standings.
Bristol City vs Hull City Head-to-Head
The two sides have clashed on 88 occasions in the past and Bristol City have a superior record with 36 wins to their name. Hull City have been victorious in 28 matches while 24 games in the past have ended in a share of the spoils.
The last time they faced each other was back in December when the spoils were shared in a 2-2 stalemate.
The recent record favors the visitors, who have had quite a memorable month which has seen them steer clear of any relegation conflict.
