Hull City have appointed Nigel Adkins as their new manager on an 18-month contract.

The former Reading, Southampton and Scunthorpe United manager is the club's fifth appointment in the past 17 months.

The Tigers find themselves sitting in 20th place with just 19 points accrued from 20 games so far this term and have won just four of their league encounters throughout the campaign.

This weekend Adkins' Hull are priced at 2/1 to beat 11th-placed Brentford, who have lost just once in 13 games, while they can be backed at 8/1 to go on and finish in the top-half of the table.

"The Tigers are pleased to announce Nigel Adkins as the Club's new Head Coach", the club announced on their official website on Thursday.

He knocked down 15 of his 23 attempts through the first nine games of the season, including 3 of 5 in the Illini's Big Ten opener. Overall, this should be a way for IL to get back on the winning track and maybe implement some new wrinkles into their play.

"Adkins, a Championship promotion-winner with Southampton in 2012, will be joined at the KCOM Stadium by his trusted assistant Andy Crosby on an 18-month contract".

A Championship title victor whilst with Southampton, who he led to double promotions from League One into the Premier League, Adkins also has promotion success with Scunthorpe United under his belt along with spells at Reading and Sheffield United.

Hull have a testing run of fixtures coming up, which will test Adkins and his coaching staff, with the Tigers in desperate need of results.

Adkins, who was sacked by the Saints in 2013 to be replaced by Mauricio Pochettino, moved on to Reading but was dismissed the following season after failing to mount a promotion push at the Madejski Stadium.
