McCann: ‘They’re a Good Footballing Team’

20 November 2020

Grant McCann admits he has been impressed by MK Dons’ possession-based approach.

Hull City head to Stadium MK tomorrow in second place, a point off the summit, having won four straight matches without conceding in all competitions.

Russell Martin’s 14th-placed Dons are also in good form and extended their unbeaten league run to four games with a surprise 2-1 win at Sunderland last weekend.

And McCann believes an entertaining match is in prospect.

“I watched them at Northampton a few weeks back and they impressed me with the way they play,” said McCann.

“They’re a good footballing team, very much possession based. Russell’s got them playing in a way where they want to keep the ball.

“They want to get the ball down and play, try and play in between you, and get their forwards and wing-backs high up the pitch and hurt you.

“I feel it’s going to be a good footballing game.

“It’s a stadium similar to ours, pitch similar to ours, quite a big arena. I think it’s going to be a good game.

“They’ve got some experience in that team with Dean Lewington, Richard Keogh and Cameron Jerome. They’ve got a nice blend there.

“But we feel we’re in good form at this present time. We want to go there, try to win the game and have another good performance.”
