Today's early season matchup sees the seventh placed team in the division take on the eighth, and if there is a winner, that side could potentially go third with the right results. When these two teams met last May, Villa won 3-1, but Hull had already secured safety and were thinking about the FA Cup Final. That won't be the case today, so expect a closer game.
