Tigers To Host Manchester United Under-23s

27 July 2021

Hull City will take on Manchester United Under-23s in a behind-closed-doors practice match at the MKM Stadium on Saturday 31st July, kick-off 12 noon.

As on Saturday when the Tigers faced Mansfield and Scunthorpe, Grant McCann will split his squad between the United match and Friday night’s fixture at Sunderland.

These will be the final friendlies ahead of the Championship season opener away to Preston on Saturday 7th August.

McCann said: “It’s another chance for us to get 90 minutes into the group, with one on Friday and one on Saturday.

“They’re another two good games for us to try and get some minutes into the players.

“We didn’t have Callum Elder or Mallik Wilks at the weekend and we’ll see where they are fitness-wise.

“There’ll be no risks taken if anyone isn’t 100% as the most important thing is to get people right for the Preston game.

“We’ll judge how the group are this week and pick teams accordingly.”
