Loanee's Championship campaign goes to the wire.

Ahmed Elmohamady’s Hull City will be looking to secure promotion to the Barclays Premier League on the final day of the Championship season this weekend.

The Tigers host title winners Cardiff City at the KC Stadium knowing a win would guarantee promotion back to the top flight after three seasons in the Championship.

If Hull fail to beat the Welsh outfit, they’ll still be promoted should Watford lose their home game with Leeds United.

The Hornets can afford to draw their game with Leeds if the Tigers lose to Cardiff due to a superior goal difference.

It promises to be a tense afternoon with former Sunderland man David Meyler also set to be involved.

Elsewhere, Ji Dong-Won’s Augsburg travel to Europa League chasing Freiburg in the German Bundesliga on Sunday.

Ji’s side have won two out of their last three games to boost their survival hopes with three games remaining.

A win on Sunday would move them out of the relegation play-off spot should Fortuna Dusseldorf fail to win at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Augsburg know they’ll need to pick up a result on Sunday before they travel to Bayern Munich the following weekend.
