An Allan McGregor howler allowed Lokeren to claim a narrow victory in the first leg last week, although Hull were impressive against Stoke on Sunday and they can get over the line in this tie.
The Tigers are packing in the fixtures before the international break and felt aggrieved that they weren’t claiming three points against the Potters as they battled gamely with ten men before conceding a late equalizer.
However, City are the 8/15 favourites to claim victory on Thursday night against a team that didn’t cause them too many problems last week, with the Belgian side profiting from that goalkeeper mistake.
With Michael Dawson having arrived at the KC Stadium for talks, there might be a temptation to field the former Tottenham defender straight away in this game, while James Chester’s impending suspension means he can be fielded for the full match.
Paddy Power offer 13/10 about the Tigers winning without conceding a goal and it looks a tempting price, with the defence having looked pretty stout in all of their matches so far.
The English team are an 11/10 chance with Paddy Power to qualify based on the fact that they need a victory to go through and a goal for Lokeren will leave them needing to score three times.
