Match Previews

Wilks Available For Swansea

9 September 2021

Grant McCann will welcome back forward Mallik Wilks for Hull City’s Championship fixture against Swansea City.

The 22-year-old has been absent since the opening day of the season against Preston North End with a calf injury but has now been back in training for two weeks, while George Honeyman is edging closer to a return.

The boss said: “Mallik Wilks will be back for Swansea.

“Mallik is looking good and has been training for the last two weeks with the group.

“It might come too soon for George Honeyman.

“He’s been working very hard on the training pitch with the conditioning coaches.

“He’s just building that base again.

“We’re hoping to have him back next week and maybe lean him into the Sheffield United game.

“He’s probably two or three weeks ahead of schedule which shows the hard work and dedication that’s gone in from everyone.”

McCann is yet to make a judgement call on Josh Magennis after the striker missed the game against Bournemouth with a hip injury, before the 31-year-old also had to sit out of Northern Ireland’s three games over the international break.

“It’s been a strange one for Josh Magennis," McCann added. 

“He missed the last game against Bournemouth.

“He had a little problem with his hip leading into that game.

“He joined in a little bit with us today.

“We’ll see where he is heading into the weekend but it would be a nice boost if we had him back for us as well."

McCann also had an update on the fitness of defender Alfie Jones.

“Alfie Jones trained on the Friday leading into the Bournemouth game," McCann said.

“We never took a risk with him because he’d only trained one day.

“Unfortunately, in the early part of this week, Alfie felt his thigh which is just so annoying for him.

“He’s not going to make the weekend but it’s not bad.

“He’s touch and go for Tuesday but should be back for Sheffield United.”

Midfielder George Moncur is available for selection again after completing his three-game suspension.

Swansea City 0-0 Hull City: Match Report

11 September 2021

Resolute Hull City played out a second successive goalless draw in a match of few chances away to Swansea City.

The closest either side came was when Matt Grimes’ first-half free-kick was tipped onto the post by Matt Ingram, who also produced smart stops to deny Kyle Naughton and Joel Piroe.

Fit-again Mallik Wilks started for the first time since the opening day, in one of three changes from the scoreless draw with AFC Bournemouth prior to the international break.

Josh Magennis was passed fit after a hip problem and George Moncur returned after a three-match suspension, with Ryan Longman and the two Smiths, Matt and Tyler, named among the substitutes.

Russell Martin’s Swans looked to monopolise possession from the outset and enjoyed 71% of the play in the first half, retaining the ball neatly and patiently.

A double defensive intervention kept the hosts at bay on 16 minutes as Tom Huddlestone blocked Jake Bidwell’s shot and Oliver Ntcham’s near-post strike deflected behind off Callum Elder.

Ethan Laird directed a towering header well wide from Bidwell’s cross and Piroe’s 20-yarder was smothered by Ingram low to his left.

The home pressure was building and it took an inspired, fingertip stop from the Tigers’ number one to keep the scores level on 25 minutes.

Grimes’ curling 25-yard free-kick was arcing towards the top corner until a flying Ingram stretched out his left hand to flick the ball superbly onto an upright.

A scramble ensued, with Piroe eventually firing over, and shortly after, Naughton was allowed to advance unopposed and hit a rasping long-range drive which was palmed away by Ingram.

Ntcham steered wide via a deflection on the cusp of half-time, with the Tigers unable to create any chances of note in an opening 45 dominated by the Welsh outfit.

Wilks had the visitors’ first attempt shortly after the resumption – a wild effort which sailed high and wide – while Grimes fared little better with an ambitious strike moments before.

Swansea’s possession-based approach remained unaltered in the second half and they felt they should have been awarded a penalty when Laird went down under the challenge of Elder from behind.

Referee Keith Stroud was uninterested and waved away further appeals for a foul on Jamie Paterson by Di’Shon Bernard as home frustrations grew.

Grimes again missed the target from range as many a Swansea attack broke down on the edge of the Hull City box, although there was still little offered the other way.

Grant McCann turned to his bench in search of attacking inspiration, bringing on Matt Smith and Tyler Smith in place of Wilks and Magennis.

Ingram had to be alert to shovel away Piroe’s well-struck drive at his near post and a stretching Michael Obafemi diverted wide from a corner.

Having defended valiantly, the Tigers very nearly pinched victory in the fifth minute of added time.

After another Swansea move was repelled, Huddlestone released Ryan Longman down the left with an exquisite outside-of-the-boot pass.

The substitute, introduced late on for Moncur, cut infield and curled a fine right-footed effort towards the far corner but Swans stopper Ben Hamer batted away with both hands.
