McCann Provides Update On Injuries

30 September 2021

Grant McCann has confirmed that a number of important first-team players remain unavailable for Hull City’s Championship fixture against Middlesbrough.

George Honeyman, Josh Magennis and Tom Huddlestone are all still recovering from injury, while Lewie Coyle will also serve out his one-match suspension after being sent off against Blackpool on Tuesday.

“George Honeyman is getting better but we won’t see him now until after the international break,” McCann said.

“We imagine he might be back for Huddersfield.

“It’s the same situation for Tom Huddlestone and Josh Magennis.

“In terms of Lewie Coyle, we’ve got a natural replacement for him in Josh Emmanuel.

“Josh is a top-class player and has been very unfortunate to not be in our team with the form of Lewie.

“He’s an ultimate professional and trains fantastically every single day.

“When he’s played in our team, he’s been very good.

“Randell Williams is getting better after picking up a little knock in training.

“He should be on the pitch at some point today (Thursday).”

One player who is available for Saturday’s game against Middlesbrough is Tom Eaves, and McCann says that the striker has given him food for thought after scoring the equaliser against Blackpool on Tuesday having come on as a late substitute.

“I’ve been really pleased with Tom Eaves over the past three or four weeks,” McCann added.

“We had an honest conversation in my office about the amount of forwards that we’ve got at the football club.

“There was a lot of speculation around whether he was going to leave or not.

“Tom wanted to stay and fight for his place and we were happy with that.

“Over the past three or four weeks, he’s got his head down and has trained very well.

“You can see that hunger in his eyes again.

“I was pleased for him when he came on and scored because he’s deserved that in terms of how he’s approached training and gone about his business every day.”

Hull City 2-0 Middlesbrough: Match Report

2 October 2021

Two goals in the last ten minutes secured Hull City their first home win of the season with a 2-0 victory over Middlesbrough.

A Joe Lumley own goal and a composed finish by Mallik Wilks earned the Tigers all three points.

Grant McCann made five changes to the starting XI that drew against Blackpool last time out. Goalscorer from midweek Tom Eaves started, while there were returns for Richie Smallwood, Josh Emmanuel, Tyler Smith and Di’Shon Bernard.

The Tigers started the brighter of the two teams as Moncur’s free-kick hit the side-netting, while Bernard saw his drilled effort parried by Lumley. At the other end, Duncan Watmore fired a chance wide for Middlesbrough while Marcus Tavernier saw an effort blocked by Jacob Greaves. The Middlesbrough winger then forced a good save from Matt Ingram at his near post, before putting the rebound wide of the goal.

There were a few opportunities towards the end of the first half as Smith and Greaves fired chances off target for City, while the visitors had a great chance with Andraž Šporar who fired over from close range.

In the second half, Marc Bola saw his effort blocked well by both Andy Cannon and Bernard, before Tavernier fired wide following a quick Boro counter-attack. Šporar then placed a one-on-one effort wide, while Eaves volleyed his first-time effort wide.

Ingram then produced a fantastic save to deny Paddy McNair, with the goalkeeper sharply getting down to his right-hand side to push away the midfielder’s volley.

The Tigers took the lead with nine minutes left to play as Keane Lewis-Potter’s half-volley hit the inside of the post before deflecting into the back of the net off Lumley’s back. Middlesbrough tried to respond late on as Jonny Howson saw his effort blocked by Bernard, before McNair found the net from a free-kick, but it was ruled out by referee Andy Davies.

Uche Ikpeazu thought he had found an equaliser in injury time, but his effort was well-saved by Ingram at his near post, before the Tigers scored their second, as a quick counter-attack saw Wilks clinically finish the move with a low placed effort. Ingram had to be alert moments later to deny James Léa Siliki to preserve the clean sheet as the Tigers secured victory at the MKM Stadium.
