McCann Targeting More Home Goals

2 March 2021

Grant McCann has called on his players to start replicating their free-scoring away form on home soil, starting against Rochdale this evening.

The comprehensive 3-0 victory at AFC Wimbledon made it 11 goals in three away games, with the Tigers’ overall tally of 37 in 17 away matches the best in the country.

By contrast, Hull City have only netted 15 goals in 15 home games and failed to score in the last three, the most recent two ending in 1-0 defeats.

Asked what needs to change, McCann said: “We need to be a bit calmer at home and not think ‘we need to go and win, we need to go and win’ and get so focused on winning that all of a sudden your performance goes.

“We need to focus on the process a little bit better. We know we’re a good team, we know we’ve got good footballers, we know we can hurt most teams in this division – as we’ve shown all season.

“Now, we need to do it at home and try and get away from those disappointing 1-0 defeats we’ve had that have been lingering in the background.

“We need to try to show the same attacking intent we’ve showed away from home at home.”
