McCann full of praise after late win

2 December 2020

Grant McCann was full of praise for his Hull City side following the dramatic late victory over Doncaster.

Tom Eaves’ 87th-minute goal earned the Tigers a fourth successive fourth league win after Tyreece John-Jules had cancelled out Josh Magennis’ thunderous first-half opener.

“I thought it was a really good performance, bar a 10-15-minute spell in the second half were we just got a bit lax with our shape and they took advantage of it,” said McCann.

“They’re one of the better footballing teams in the league but I thought for large periods of the game we were very comfortable.

“We kept coming and coming and coming. My boys did everything to score another goal at 1-0. We hit the post, had shots blocked, the keeper made some really good saves.

“Sometimes you’ve got to give the opposition credit for their defensive abilities. I thought Doncaster did that and stood strong against us were some other teams may have wilted.

“We had to keep going. We conceded a goal off their first shot on target.

“The subs made a really good impact again – James Scott, Keano (Lewis-Potter), Eavesy – and they helped us get three points.

“I was really pleased to get the job done at the end.”
