Match Previews

Cannon unavailable for Stoke

14 January 2022

Head Coach Grant McCann has revealed that Andy Cannon has joined the list of injury absentees ahead of this weekend’s game against Stoke City.

The 25-year-old midfielder was looking to force his way back into the starting line-up having not featured since the end of November against Birmingham City, but now faces a spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury in training.

“We had a bit of an accident on the training ground during the week with Andy Cannon,” said McCann.

“He’s just clipped Richie Smallwood’s boot and is unfortunately going to be missing for the next two or three weeks. It’s a bit of ligament damage in his ankle so we’re disappointed to lose him.

“One of the younger players has been affected by Covid but he’ll be off for five or six days.

“Apart from Andy and the injuries we already have with Alfie Jones, Callum Elder, Lewie Coyle and Mallik Wilks, we’re pretty much the same as we were against Everton.”

McCann also provided a more in-depth update on the progress of long-term absentees Jones, Elder, Coyle and Wilks ahead of this weekend’s game against the Potters.

“Alfie (Jones) had a good follow-up meeting yesterday (Thursday) with a specialist in London,” added McCann.

“They are really pleased with how he’s progressing. We’re going to start getting him into training next week. He’s going to need two or three weeks of training before we consider him.

“Lewie Coyle has been out training with the fitness coaches for the last couple of days.

“Callum Elder has been out on the pitch today for the first time so we’ll see how he progresses.

“For the three of them you are probably looking at (a return date of) early February.”

Hull City 0-2 Stoke City: Match Report

16 January 2022

Goals in each half saw Hull City fall to defeat in their first home Sky Bet Championship fixture of 2022, losing 0-2 against Stoke City.

Strikes from Jacob Brown and Tom Ince saw the Potters claim all three points at the MKM Stadium.

Grant McCann made two changes to his starting XI that faced Everton in the Emirates FA Cup last time out. Ryan Longman and Tom Huddlestone started in place for Randell Williams and Richie Smallwood, who were named on the bench respectively, while George Honeyman was named captain.

Both teams had chances early on as Nathan Baxter was sharp off his line to block D’Margio Wright-Phillips’ attempt, while Greg Docherty volleyed wide for the Tigers. Brown went close for Stoke, but a combination of Jacob Greaves, Sean McLoughlin and Baxter denied the forward.

Stoke opened the scoring on 22 minutes as a quick counter-attack saw Sam Clucas cross for Brown to clinically head home. Josh Tymon’s cross almost saw McLoughlin put into his own net, before Baxter saved well to push Phil Jagielka’s header over the bar from the resulting corner. At the other end, Tom Eaves searched for a Tigers’ equaliser as his well-struck volley tested Jack Bonham in the Stoke goal.

Tymon almost got a second for toke early in the second half, after he jinxed his way into the penalty area, but his right-footed shot was blocked by McLoughlin. The Tigers’ defender was at it again moments later, deflecting Ince’s effort wide.

However, Ince wasn’t going to be denied a second time as Sam Clucas picked out Ince on the edge of the penalty area, with the forward rifling his shot into the far corner past the outstretched dive of Baxter.

Wright-Phillips searched for a Stoke third as his ambitious effort went narrowly over the bar, while Longman saw his strike blocked by the feet of Bonham at his near post. In the other goal, Baxter had to push over Wright-Phillips’ cross-shot, before James Chester headed wide from the resulting corner.

Baxter was being kept busy in the Tigers’ goal as he blocked Brown’s close range attempt, before holding on to Lewis Baker’s drilled shot. Williams searched for his first Hull City goal, after he cut inside from the left wing, but his whipped effort was blocked by the Stoke defence.

McLoughlin then cleared Jagielka’s looping header late on to deny the visitors a third, before George Moncur volleyed over from inside the Stoke penalty area. In stoppage time, Baxter was called into action to deny Baker’s dipping effort from range.


Hull City (3-4-1-2): Nathan Baxter; Di’Shon Bernard, Sean McLoughlin, Jacob Greaves; Ryan Longman, Greg Docherty (George Moncur 46’), Tom Huddlestone (Richie Smallwood 58’) , Keane Lewis-Potter; George Honeyman (C); Tom Eaves, Tyler Smith (Randell Williams 58’).
