Byrne provides update on squad ahead of Blackburn

23 December 2021

Assistant Head Coach Cliff Byrne has provided an update on how the squad is shaping up ahead of our fixture against Blackburn Rovers on Boxing Day.

Earlier today, the club announced that Head Coach Grant McCann will be absent from the touchline against Tony Mowbray’s side after testing positive for Covid-19.

“We’ve had some cases across the playing staff and across the non-playing staff,” Byrne confirmed.

“It’s ever-changing and we’ve got to test on a daily basis now - those are the rules in place from the EFL. The focus is on the players that are out on the grass and the game coming up on Sunday.”

Away from Covid-19, Byrne had good news to share following last weekend’s game against Nottingham Forest, as well as the progress of Alfie Jones and Lewie Coyle as they continue to recover from long-term injuries.

“No fresh ones to speak of at the moment,” Byrne said when questioned about whether any fresh injuries were picked up at the City Ground.

“Alfie (Jones) is progressing well. I think the finishing line is in sight in terms of where he’s been at and how long he’s been out. He’s progressing nicely and hasn’t had any setbacks along the way. The medical team are working hard with him, as he is with them.

“He’s (Lewie Coyle) also progressing really well. He’s coming through the different stages of the rehab. There haven’t been any setbacks along the way so he’s progressing as we would expect with the medical team. We look forward to having the both of them back as soon as we can.”

Brandon Fleming returned to first-team training a few weeks ago, and Byrne says that he is continuing to get back up to speed.

“Brandon (Fleming) has been back training now for a number of weeks. He played a good chunk of minutes for the Under-23s. He needs more game time as he would suggest himself anyway but in terms of training he’s been back in among the group for nearly a month now.”

Match Reports

Hull City 2-0 Blackburn Rovers: Match Report

19 January 2022

Goals in each half saw the new era under Acun Ilıcalı’s ownership begin with a 2-0 victory over high-flying Blackburn Rovers.

George Honeyman and Tom Eaves netted the goals for the Tigers as Grant McCann’s picked up three points in the Sky Bet Championship.

Grant McCann made two changes to his starting XI that faced Stoke City last time out. Randell Williams and Richie Smallwood came into the team for Tyler Smith and Tom Huddlestone, who dropped to the bench, with Smallwood captaining the team on his 50th league appearance for the Tigers. Also among the substitutes was recently recalled duo Festus Arthur and Callum Jones.

It was a perfect start for the Tigers as good build-up play saw Ryan Longman feed the ball through for Honeyman, who jinxed his way into the box before sneaking the ball over the line. Blackburn looked to respond immediately as Ben Brereton Díaz tested an outstretched Nathan Baxter, before the Chilean international saw his penalty appeals waved away by Thomas Bramall.

Di’Shon Bernard then produced a world-class recovery to clear Reda Khadra’s effort off the line, after the forward dribbled past Baxter, before the Tigers’ shot-stopper parried away Joe Rothwell’s drive.

In the second half, Blackburn produced several dangerous crosses, which were dealt with by the Tigers’ defence, while Darragh Lenihan’s low shot was held by Baxter at his near post. At the other end, Eaves’ volley flew over the bar, before Longman tested Thomas Kaminski in the Blackburn goal and the rebound from Williams being blocked.

From a corner routine, Longman drilled narrowly wide from close-range, before Baxter had to be alert at his near post to block Tayo Edun’s attempt. From the resulting corner, Scott Wharton headed over.

On the 67th minute, Eaves doubled the Tigers’ lead. Longman’s whipped cross found the striker at the back post, who towered over his marker before looping his header into the far corner from a tight angle. It could have been three just minutes later as Kaminski produced a stunning reaction save to deny Honeyman from point-blank range, before Keane Lewis-Potter fired over the rebound.

The Hull City front man curled a free-kick from 25 yards narrowly wide late on in the fixture, before seeing another effort curl wide just minutes later. Tyler Smith almost made it three in stoppage time after the Tigers won the ball high up the pitch, but his strike was pushed behind by Kaminski.

 

Hull City (3-4-1-2): Nathan Baxter; Di’Shon Bernard, Sean McLoughlin, Jacob Greaves; Randell Williams, Richie Smallwood ©, Greg Docherty, Ryan Longman (Tyler Smith 87’); George Honeyman (Callum Jones 90’); Tom Eaves, Keane Lewis-Potter.
