Greaves determined to secure home win

18 March 2022

Defender Jacob Greaves is determined to help the Tigers secure their first home win since the end of January against Luton Town.

The Tigers have not picked up three points at the MKM Stadium since Shota Arveladze’s first game in charge against Swansea City, and Greaves believes it is time for the players to replicate their form away from home on their own turf.

“We go into every game exactly the same,” explained Greaves.

“It’s been such a weird one that we’ve been fairly decent away from home and at home we’ve struggled for form and goals. I feel like coming into this game on the back of two clean sheets, we’ve got a bit of momentum, as well as our mojo back going forward after scoring two goals the other night (against Coventry City).

“Hopefully, we can score a few goals in front of the fans and try and get three points because I know it’s been a long time coming.”

Another big crowd is expected at the MKM Stadium as supporters take advantage of the club’s latest ticket offer, and the 21-year-old is looking forward to experiencing the atmosphere.

“It’s really good to see what the owners are doing with the new ticket offer and it’s attracting a lot of different fans from different backgrounds,” said Greaves.

“I always like playing in front of packed crowds and good atmospheres - I think all of the players do. We know how good the MKM Stadium can be when it’s packed and bouncing.

“That’ll give us the upper hand going in to face Luton, who are on fire at the minute and have a lot of good players going forward. I think they’ve got a few injuries defensively, but it’ll be a really good game. Hopefully, we can be on the right end of a result.”

Greaves has formed a good understanding down the left-hand side with fellow homegrown products Brandon Fleming and Keane Lewis-Potter over recent weeks, and the defender was delighted to see Lewis-Potter’s performances recognised with a call-up to the England Under-21 squad.

“It's an unbelievable achievement for him,” added Greaves.

“I’m sure he’s buzzing deep down. He’s been a credit to his family and the club with his performances this season.

“He’s been absolutely fantastic and one of the best attackers in the league. Hopefully, he can go and do what he does with Hull City week in, week out with England.”
