Hull make the journey to Merseyside looking to extend their sequence of games where they achieve maximum points.
The prospects are encouraging as they take on a side that has only won one and drawn one of their fixtures so far this season.
Hull will be aware that Birkenhead’s ground can get very wet and heavy at this time of year and that can have the effect of levelling up the sides.
Hull had a free Saturday last week as Bridlington were unable to fulfil the Yorkshire Cup fixture but that should have eased any injury concerns head coach Gary Pearce may have had.
Hull travel with a full squad to select from and this should allow for plenty of impact from the bench.
Even if the pitch is heavy Hull have a number of forwards who are making the hard yards and players like number eight Joe Stafford are well capable of mixing it at close quarters.
If Hull can secure their own scrum and lineout ball they should carry too much fire power for a side that has yet to find its feet at this level.
