McCann Provides Coyle Injury Update

18 November 2021

Grant McCann has confirmed that defender Lewie Coyle will be out of action for a number of weeks after picking up an ankle injury against Barnsley.

The right-back was forced off after 37 minutes in the 2-0 win at Oakwell, and now faces an extended spell on the sidelines as the Tigers prepare to return to action against Birmingham City.

“It’s unfortunate to lose Lewie,” said McCann.

“Initially after the game against Barnsley, we were all adamant that it was a kick that he had received. Lewie was also adamant that he’d just felt a kick on his ankle. We didn’t think it was too bad.

“Having reviewed the video footage of it, he does roll his ankle after the kick which has caused some ligament damage. It’s going to keep him out for weeks - I’m not sure myself (on the exact timescale). We just have to take it week by week and see where he is.”

Two players who are available for selection against Birmingham are Josh Magennis and Callum Elder. Both men have been away on international duty with Northern Ireland and Australia respectively, but McCann says they have returned unscathed.

“Josh and Callum have come back in today,” McCann added.

“Callum has been halfway around the world. His first game was in Australia and the second was in Dubai, so it’s nice to see him back. He’s a little bit jetlagged and tired but he’s fine. He was out on the grass today (Thursday) and will be good for Saturday.

“Josh had two very good games for Northern Ireland. I thought he was excellent in both games. It’s nice to see both him and Callum come back into the fold.”

McCann also provided an update on midfielder Tom Huddlestone, who has been missing since mid-October with a hamstring injury.

“He trained today for the first time on the grass with the team,” McCann said.

“He’s been working hard with the conditioning coaches. It’s a day by day thing with Tom - just seeing how he feels and where he’s at both physically and mentally. We’re not putting any timescale on when he’s going to return, but it’s nice to see him back out on the grass.”

Hull City 2-0 Birmingham City: Match Report

20 November 2021

Hull City secured back-to-back wins for the first time this season with a 2-0 victory against 10-man Birmingham City.

Goals in each half from George Honeyman and Mallik Wilks secured the Tigers all three points at the MKM Stadium, with Gary Gardner being sent off for an off-the-ball incident.

Grant McCann made two changes to his starting XI that defeated Barnsley 2-0 last time out. Sean McLoughlin and Ryan Longman replaced Lewie Coyle and Callum Elder respectively, while academy graduate Jevon Mills was named on the bench.

Wilks had the first opportunity of the game as his header was held by Matija Sarkic, while Nathan Baxter denied Gardner in the other goal. Keane Lewis-Potter then headed over from Longman’s cross before the Tigers opened the scoring on 17 minutes. Longman drove down the left wing before squaring the ball back to Honeyman to poke home from close range.

Di’Shon Bernard searched for a second with a long-range drive but his effort was well watched by Sarkic. At the other end, Baxter produced a fantastic one-on-one save to deny Scott Hogan.

The Blues were reduced to 10 men just before half-time as Gardner leaned in with his head towards Magennis, with referee Tony Harrington showing the Birmingham midfielder the red card. Longman almost doubled the Tigers’ lead before the break but his right-footed effort curled wide.

Wilks doubled the Tigers’ lead 12 minutes into the second half. Lewis-Potter evaded his marker with great skill to get into the Birmingham penalty area, before lofting a looping cross towards the back post for Wilks to head in. Lewis-Potter searched for a third but his powerful effort was pushed away by Sarkic, while Baxter denied both Riley McGree and Jérémie Bela moments later.

The Tigers continued to push for more goals as Wilks saw his near-post effort beaten away by Sarkic, while Randell Williams saw his shot blocked by McGree after a quick counter-attack. The Tigers’ forward continued to look dangerous after coming off the bench, but Williams could only curl his left-footed effort narrowly wide past the post, before Wilks missed out on a chance to secure his brace as he headed wide from Lewis-Potter’s cross in injury time.
