Elmo Can't Wait For Home Tie


11:43 4th August 2014

Ahmed Elmohamady is keen to help ensure that a historic night for Hull City is a successful one in front of a large home crowd on Thursday.

For the first time ever, Hull will host a competitive European club game as the Tigers look to progress through to the Play-Off round of the UEFA Europa League with Slovakian side FK AS Trencin standing in their way following a 0-0 draw in the first leg of the tie in Zilina last week.

A phenomenal response from Tigers fans means that Thursday’s second leg will be played in front of a near sell-out crowd and Elmohamady wants to make sure they leave happy.

“It is a big first for Hull City,” said Elmohamady.

“Our first home game in Europe and I am sure the fans want to be part of that. I think they will come and the stadium will be full.

“And, hopefully, we can get the result that will make the city and our fans happy.”

Following last week’s draw in Slovakia, Elmohamady knows that the Tigers will have to be switched on to progress through this week, but he is confident his side has the quality to get the victory they need.

“When a game is 0-0 after one leg, it can be tough,” added Elmohamady.

“Anything can happen. An away goal can go in and change things, but if we train well this week and concentrate on our jobs, I believe we can get the result.

“We want to get into the group stage. Everyone is desperate to make it – and play against the big teams of Europe.

“That would be great for the fans, too – and everyone to do with Hull. This is such a big game, an extra week of pre-season training will help. We are still in pre-season and we will adjust.

“We will look to go forward more and win the game. We have to win the match and we will do everything to make that happen.”

Remaining tickets for Thursday’s game are on sale now priced £10 Adults, £5 Concessions. Due to huge demand for tickets, the West Stand Upper Tier is now open – tickets available online.
