Greaves Hoping To Retain His Place

24 October 2020

Defender Jacob Greaves is hoping his performances have earned him another start as the Tigers prepare to face Peterborough United at the KCOM Stadium this afternoon.

Greaves made his league debut for the Tigers in the 3-0 win over Rochdale, and the Hull City Academy product is delighted with the start he’s made.

“It was brilliant away at Rochdale,” he said. “Jordy was ill during the week so I got the shout that I was starting and it took me back a little bit, but then I just had to get straight into the zone and treat it as just another game I had to prepare for and fortunately we won 3-0, so it was a great league debut.

You don’t go into a game to not also try and play the next one. I’ve gone into the two games I’ve played to do my best and to keep the shirt and I managed to keep it for Tuesday night which was good, but now I’m hoping to try and keep my shirt for as long as I can.

“We’ve watched Peterborough and we’ve done our work on them so we know what to expect. They like to pass the ball and they’re a physical side. They’ve got (Jonson) Clarke-Harris who I played against when he was at Bristol Rovers and he’s a handful, but we know what they’re about and we’ll do what we can to impose ourselves on the game.

“We’ve got six points this week so far, but we want to make it nine to complete the week. Hopefully we can get the three points and keep building that gap between us and the rest of the league.”
