Arveladze delighted after biggest home win

23 April 2022

Shota Arveladze was delighted to see his Hull City team secure their biggest home win of the season with a 3-0 victory over Reading.

A Keane Lewis-Potter brace and Alfie Jones’ first goal for the club earned the Tigers back-to-back wins at home for the first time under the Georgian.

“It’s great to win in front of our supporters, having three goals, the best score of the season (at home),” said Arveladze.

“Everything is complete, whole day, whole game, we’ve done well and we should be happy for this day.

“We controlled the game. We knew what we were doing and the score helped us, 1-0, then it’s 2-0.

“They have to change, put more offensive players there, take a midfielder out and play almost 3-2-5, giving more space in the back side.

“The backs have to go far (up the pitch) because they have no chance just to stay and wait, you catch this space and Keano scores (the third).”

Jones’ close-range finish from George Honeyman’s inviting free-kick was not just his first in black and amber – but the first goal scored by a centre-back all season.

Arveladze said: “We discussed this and said, ‘In this league, if you want to do something, our centre-backs have to get more accuracy, more of the ball.’

“We work on it and it comes. We’ve been so close. Every game they have a touch, almost there, but today it happens.

“It’s his first goal for the club so congrats to him. It’s also team work – George delivered a fantastic ball, we get this touch back – everything comes sometimes together.”
