Baxter could return against Luton

18 March 2022

Shota Arveladze is hopeful that goalkeeper Nathan Baxter will be available for selection for this weekend’s clash against Luton Town.

The 23-year-old, on loan from Premier League outfit Chelsea, has recently returned to full training having not featured since the end of January against Swansea City.

“Nathan could be back this weekend,” revealed Arveladze.

“He has trained with the team. He’s had a full session so we’ll probably take him (to the game) if he feels fine.

“Everyone gives us their own energy and quality. Every time a player gets fitter and is ready to help the team, it’s a good feeling.”

The Tigers secured an impressive win against play-off chasing Coventry City in midweek, but Arveladze says the three points did come at a cost with a number of first-team players picking up knocks.

“We have some knocks and we’ll wait until tomorrow (Saturday) to see how serious they are,” said Arveladze.

“I’m hoping we won’t be missing anyone.”

Two players who will be missing from this weekend’s clash against the Hatters are Andy Cannon and Tyler Smith, who have both picked up injuries.

“Smith will be a day or two late (for Luton),” added Arveladze.

“He doesn’t have time to recover. If we had another three or four days, I believe he’d be fit but he will not be ready for tomorrow.

“Cannon has got a very strange injury last minute in training before the (Birmingham City) game. He blocked the ball and twisted his ankle which has made it sore.

“He’s doing better but he will also not be available.”

Hull City 1-3 Luton Town: Match Report

19 March 2022

Hull City suffered a 1-3 home defeat by the hands of play-off contenders Luton Town.

Elijah Adebayo, Harry Cornick and James Bree all netted for the Hatters, before Tom Eaves netted a consolation in stoppage time.

Shota Arveladze made two changes to his starting XI to the one that defeated Coventry City last time out, with Greg Docherty and Callum Elder coming into the side for Regan Slater and Brandon Fleming respectively.

Both goalkeepers were called into action early in the fixture as James Shea claimed Elder’s whipped delivery, while Matt Ingram blocked Cornick’s attempt at the near post. The Hatters took the lead on nine minutes as Luton won possession high up the pitch. Adebayo in-turn drove into the box before placing his effort into the bottom corner.

The Tigers looked to respond as Keane Lewis-Potter fired his free-kick over the bar, before Eaves just missed George Honeyman’s low cross. At the other end, Ingram parried away Luke Berry’s strike from long-range, before both Berry and Ryan Longman saw attempts fly over the bar.

Good play then followed between Eaves and Honeyman, with the latter playing Lewis-Potter through on goal. However, the forward’s effort was blocked well by the recovering Peter Kioso, before Eaves headed wide from the resulting corner. Eaves then had two more attempts at goal before half-time, with both of them being off-target.

In the second half, Alfie Jones thought he got the equaliser within the opening minute. The defender rose highest to connect with Honeyman’s free-kick, but his header went wide of the post. Shea was then called into the action as he punched away Lewis-Potter’s powerful drive, before Eaves volleyed wide from Docherty’s delivery.  

The Hatters doubled their lead on 56 minutes as Sean McLoughlin was dispossessed by Adebayo high up the pitch, with the forward drawing Ingram out of his goal before squaring it to Cornick for an easy tap-in.

Twelve minutes later and Luton had a third as Bree’s free-kick from the edge of the penalty area hit the underside of the bar, before bouncing over the line. Marcus Forss, Allahyar Sayyadmanesh, Lewis-Potter and Elder all tried their luck to reduce the deficit, but to no avail.

In injury-time, Eaves pulled a goal back as Tom Huddlestone picked out the run of Forss, who in-turn drilled a low cross for Eaves to convert from close-range.
