McCann demands final third improvements

26 October 2020

Grant McCann has called for his Hull City side to sharpen up in the final third.

Despite taking the lead through Mallik Wilks’ low drive, the Tigers fell to a first home defeat of the season after losing 2-1 to Peterborough.

Defeat was harsh on City, who registered 13 shots to Posh’s five, with the visitors scoring from both of their efforts on target.

McCann’s men had their chances, with Wilks hitting the post with a deflected shot, Greg Docherty curling an effort just wide and Tom Eaves glancing a header narrowly past the upright.

And the boss wants to see more consistency in the attacking areas – and for his side to score more goals.

“We’re still early into the season but that’s one area where I think we need to be better,” said McCann.

“Although we’ve scored some goals, I think we can still be better with the players we’ve got at the top end of the pitch.

“What I think we could also get better at is our delivery into the box when we get up there.

“It’s a little bit mixy-matchy at the minute – there’s one good, one bad, one good, one bad.

“We need to be more consistent when we get into the final third. Whether it’s midfielders, full-backs, wide players, whoever it is, in those areas we need to be a bit more consistent.

“Then we’ll score some goals.”
