McCann Prepares For 'Different' Northampton

4 April 2021

Grant McCann says his Hull City side will face a ‘completely different’ Northampton Town to the one they beat earlier in the season when the two teams meet at the KCOM Stadium on Easter Monday.

Goals from Keane Lewis-Potter and George Honeyman saw the Tigers net a 2-0 win against the Cobblers back in September, but plenty has changed at Sixfields since then and, while Northampton continue to fight to retain their place in League One, they are going about it in an attractive manner.

“They’re a completely different team to the one we faced back in September,” said McCann.

“I watched them against Oxford a couple of weeks ago and they were excellent. They have a different shape, a different style, a different manager and a different philosophy now. They want to play football and aren’t too dissimilar to what we saw from Crewe on Friday in terms of how they go about it. I think it will be another good football game.

“We’ve just got to take care of our own business. We’re back at home and we’ll be looking to improve in terms of our final product compared to last weekend’s game against Gillingham. We’ll take the confidence and three points from Friday into Monday and hopefully we can get another three points which is what we’re all craving.”

There are just seven games of the Tigers’ season remaining and the race for promotion continues to hot up, although McCann remains focussed on one game at a time.

“We’ve got seven big games to come and that starts with Northampton,” he added.

“We want to build on what we showed on Friday at Crewe and try to get another three points.”
