Despite seemingly enjoying a relatively bright start to the campaign, Peterborough United have found life back in the Championship tough, with the Posh now in a particularly unenviable position in the fight for survival.
They have won just one of their last 18 games in the second tier and head into Saturday in a run of 10 matches without a win, having earned just two points in that time.
One of those came in a recent six-pointer against fellow strugglers Reading, as the game finished as a goalless draw, but the Cambridgeshire outfit have since suffered another two defeats, firstly falling in another crucial game against Derby County, triggering the dismissal of Darren Ferguson.
Matthew Etherington then led them into a difficult trip to Fulham, and, despite Jack Marriott pulling a late goal back, they eventually left empty-handed, albeit with their heads held high after only a narrow 2-1 loss.
With McCann now back at the helm and keen to get one over on his former side, the Posh will go in search of what will be seen as a necessary three-point haul if they are to stay in the fight for survival.
In came Shota Arveladze, and, while he started by stretched their winning run to three games with a defeat of Swansea City, the Yorkshire outfit have been unable to add another notch to their wins column in the six games since.
After three straight defeats, the Tigers did impress with consecutive draws against promotion-chasing duo Sheffield United and Queens Park Rangers, but they took another major backward step last time out, as a home meeting with basement side Barnsley resulted in a 2-0 defeat.
The poor run of form has seen Arveladze’s men drop back down to 20th spot, and, while they have a 13-point cushion over the drop zone, the Yorkshire outfit will still look to correct their form to ensure they are not dragged into a scrap for the final few games of the campaign.
We are yet to see how McCann will line Peterborough up, although he will have the option of picking left-back Hayden Coulson, who served a suspension last time out after being sent off against Derby.
Defensive duo Mark Beevers and Dan Butler will remain out of action as they continue to battle through injuries.
Jack Marriott will hope for a fresh start under the new boss, with the forward having netted his third league goal of the season last time out despite the majority of his 14 appearances being cameos off the bench.
Hull have an unenviable list of injuries to deal with, as Lewie Coyle, Josh Emmanuel, Nathan Baxter, Mallik Wilks and goalkeeper Matt Ingram are all sidelined.
