Huddlestone Suffers Injury Setback

22 October 2021

Grant McCann has confirmed that midfielder Tom Huddlestone will miss the next four to six weeks through injury.

The 34-year-old returned to the starting line-up against Peterborough United, before he was forced off with a hamstring injury after 29 minutes.

McCann said: “It’s a reoccurrence of the hamstring injury in a different area.

“None of us could foresee what was going to happen and how this was going to come about. Tom has felt good over the last 10 to 12 days, so again it’s a kick in the teeth for us.

“We’ll see how he recovers but we’re probably looking at a timescale of four to six weeks. It gives him another opportunity to go and work physically in the gym.”

Richie Smallwood replaced Huddlestone against Peterborough, and McCann says it’s good to have two midfielders of their experience in the squad.

“We’ve got two very experienced central midfielders in Tom and Richie,” McCann added.

“They are both very good at what they do. When they’ve played, they’ve both been in good form this season. When we’ve got three-game weeks, it’s important that we share the load a little bit.

“We’ve got young and energetic midfield players in and around them. They both add different qualities to our team. Their know-how and experience is vital in our team. It’s disappointing news for us about Tom, but this is football. You pick up knocks and niggles all the time and it’s an opportunity for someone else now.”

Aside from Huddlestone, McCann confirmed the majority of the squad got through the game in midweek without picking up any further knocks.

“I think everyone else is fine,” McCann said.

“We had a little bit of an issue with Nathan Baxter (calf). We’ll see him again today and see whether he can make the game on Saturday. It’s just a niggle that he’s had for a while but it's nothing serious.

“If it’s deemed not suitable for him to train today, then he may miss one game, but we’ll see what the physios think of him this morning.”

Match Reports

Luton Town 1-0 Hull City: Match Report

23 October 2021

Hull City slumped to a third successive defeat as Eijah Adebayo’s first-half header gave in-form Luton Town a narrow victory.

Captain Richie Smallwood was recalled to the starting XI in the only change from the defeat to Peterborough United as Tom Huddlestone missed out through a hamstring injury.

The Tigers – wearing the club’s popular blackout away kit for the first time – almost made the worst possible start as the Hatters rattled the woodwork inside four minutes.

Uncertain defending presented Luke Berry with a chance to shoot – his left-footed drive taking a wicked deflection and completely wrong-footing Matt Ingram but trickling against the foot of the post.

Sonny Bradley’s kneed effort from a corner found the grateful arms of Ingram, who then claimed Berry’s looping header, as the hosts made all of the early running.

The pressure paid off on 17 minutes as Fred Onyedinma’s dancing feet and bending cross to the far post gave Adebayo the simple task of stooping to nod home from close range.

The Tigers enjoyed an improved spell around the half-hour mark without greatly threatening; Keane Lewis-Potter’s 25-yard free-kick hit the wall and Greg Docherty poked well wide.

Nathan Jones’ side were looking to extend a four-match unbeaten run and could have had a second six minutes before the interval.

Onyedinma’s devilish curling delivery was unusually chested away by Ingram, who then flung himself to his right to keep out Glen Rea’s fizzing follow-up strike.

The Tigers’ first effort on target came in first half injury time as Mallik Wilks collected Lewis-Potter’s volleyed pass and drove forward before hitting a low drive which Simon Sluga saved comfortably.

In a second half light on chances, Jordan Clark’s 58th-minute shot was smothered by Ingram and Josh Magennis directed a diving near-post header wide from Richie Smallwood’s inviting cross.

With the visitors chasing, McCann turned to his bench and brought on ex-Hatter George Moncur, who received a warm reception, and Tom Eaves.

A huge chance came and went on 73 minutes as Eaves was unable to pick out Lewis-Potter for a tap-in, with Sluga stranded after failing to gather Jacob Greaves’ incisive pass.

The Tigers cranked up the pressure in the closing stages and sent on Randell Williams in a final throw of the dice.

But despite a late flurry, which included Docherty flashing a low ball across the face of goal that narrowly eluded everyone and the far post, the Tigers could not find a leveller.
