My Favourite Game: Paul McShane


11:38 15th May 2013


The Republic of Ireland international defender selects his most memorable game of the 2012/13 campaign.

The 2012/13 season will go down as one of the most memorable in Hull City’s history after automatic promotion to the Barclays Premier League was secured.

We’re sure that, like us, there will be a game that stands out for you above all others when it comes to reflecting on a wonderful campaign.

It’s the same for the players, too, and over the next few weeks we’ll be finding out which games meant the most to the players who have taken the Tigers back into the top flight. We start with Paul McShane...

“I would probably go for our away game against Burnley back in March.

“It was live on Sky Sports and we won 1-0. I’d heard a lot about the fact that Hull City rarely won away at Turf Moor and we certainly hadn’t won there in my time at the club.

“I think we needed a win as well because we were playing on the Monday night after the teams around us had won on the Saturday to put pressure on us. We knew a win would take us back into second place.

“We really ground out a result that night and the defence kept a great clean sheet.

“Quinny got the winner and there was a great celebration after that goal.

“It was a great result and one that kicked us on a little bit. With it being on the telly as well, I’m sure other teams were watching that night.

“We’ve played some great stuff this season, but the result that night stands out for me.”
