Honeyman & Huddlestone Available For Huddersfield

14 October 2021

Grant McCann will welcome back midfielders George Honeyman and Tom Huddlestone for Hull City’s Championship fixture against Huddersfield Town.

Last season’s Player of the Season Honeyman has only featured once this season against Sheffield United, while Huddlestone hasn’t been in action since the Tigers held Swansea City to a goalless draw at the beginning of September.

The boss said: “The international break has enabled us to get a couple of players back off the injury table.

“Tom Huddlestone and George Honeyman have trained with the team for the last week or so. They could start on Saturday. When they come back into training, they’re ready to go.

“We’ve got to be mindful of how long they’ve been out for. We’re mindful that George’s last start was six months ago if you want to put it into context. George is the sort of character where if he was to start on Saturday, then you wouldn’t notice any difference.

“Tom has been out for about four weeks I think with a little grumbling hamstring. It’s nice to have the both of them back as it strengthens the competition in the squad.

“Matt Smith has come back from Wales as well, so the midfield is looking strong. It’s a nice headache for us to have.

“It’s also given us an opportunity to get more work into Mallik Wilks. He’s had a lot of double sessions. He’s been in even when the other players have been off. Mallik was thrown straight back into the mix because of how important a player he is for us.

“We’ll base the team around how we feel we can hurt Huddersfield.”

One player who won’t be in action on Saturday is defender Alfie Jones, who came off against Middlesbrough with a hamstring injury.

“It’s not good news on Alfie,” McCann added.

“He made a last ditch sprint in the box against Middlesbrough which resulted in him pulling his hamstring. It’s going to be three or four weeks I think, maybe longer, but it gives him an opportunity to work hard in the gym.

“Brandon Fleming is another one who’s going to be out for a bit.”

Aside from Jones and Fleming, McCann confirmed that there were no other injury concerns ahead of the weekend, and that all of the players returning from international duty are fit and available.

“Everyone else we’ve got in the building is ready to start. It’s the first time this season where we’re going to have four available players not involved which is great.

“That’s the competition for places that we want. We’re all looking forward to the game on Saturday.”

Huddersfield Town 2-0 Hull City: Match Report

16 October 2021

Goals in each half condemned Hull City to a 2-0 defeat against Huddersfield Town at the John Smith Stadium.

Tom Lees and Duane Holmes’ finishes helped secure the Terriers the three points in the Sky Bet Championship.

Grant McCann made four changes to the starting XI that defeated Middlesbrough last time out. George Honeyman made his first start of the season, while Callum Elder, Lewie Coyle and Mallik Wilks also started.

Matt Ingram produced two good saves early in the fixture to deny Huddersfield. The Tigers’ goalkeeper reacted sharply to block Lees’ header, before pushing Sorba Thomas’ cross behind. The hosts opened the scoring after nine minutes as Thomas’ set-piece wasn’t fully cleared as Lees converted from close range.

The Tigers started to dictate play as Andy Cannon saw his cross-shot parried by Lee Nicholls, before the Huddersfield goalkeeper pushed away Keane Lewis-Potter’s curling free-kick. In the other goal, Ingram superbly clawed Danel Sinani’s deflected effort over the bar.

In the second half, Thomas saw his low cross parried by Ingram, while Holmes’ long-range effort was blocked by Di’Shon Bernard. Ingram saved again moments later, parrying Harry Toffolo’s low cross.

At the other end, Docherty won possession high up the pitch with the loose ball falling to Lewis-Potter, but the forward’s effort was blocked by Matty Pearson. Great passing play then followed between Lewis-Potter, Docherty and Coyle, but the latter’s volleyed cross was gathered by Nicholls.

Huddersfield doubled their lead in the 73rd minute as Holmes cut inside from the left wing to place a curling right-footed effort into the far corner.

The Tigers had chances late on in the fixture as Wilks saw his chance blocked by a sliding Naby Sarr, before Eaves flashed his shot narrowly wide after the striker’s run was picked out by Cannon. In stoppage time, Wilks drilled a low effort wide past the post.
