Match Previews

McCann Fitness Update

10 December 2020

Grant McCann has provided a fitness update ahead of the Tigers’ League One match against Shrewsbury Town.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, the boss confirmed that Tom Eaves, who was withdrawn against Crewe in the Papa John’s Trophy through illness, had a Covid-19 test yesterday. The result has since come back negative.

Martin Samuelsen is set to have another scan on the calf injury that saw him pull up in the warm-up ahead of the Crewe game.

McCann explained: “Martin has had a scan but nothing is too clear on the scan so the physios want to rescan Martin’s calf to get to the bottom of it.

“That will take place today so we should know more over the weekend. It’s very unlikely he’ll be available for Saturday.”

Jordy de Wijs has trained all week and will be available for selection, as will Dan Batty, who will train this afternoon for the first time since recovering from a hamstring injury.

Alfie Jones and namesake Callum (both hamstring) are both unavailable.

Hull City 0-1 Shrewsbury Town: Match Report

12 December 2020

Hull City slipped to a disappointing home defeat as they were beaten 1-0 by Shrewsbury Town at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Tigers were frustrated by a well-organised Shrewsbury side, who took the three points courtesy of a first half goal from Charlie Daniels.

Grant McCann made just the one change to the side that started against Oxford United in the Tigers’ previous league outing as Reece Burke came into the back four in place of Alfie Jones. Tom Eaves was able to take a place on the bench despite feeling unwell in midweek, whilst Harvey Cartwright provided the goalkeeping cover. Former Hull City loanee Marc Pugh was on the Shrewsbury bench.

On a rainy afternoon the home side saw early appeals for a penalty waved away after claims that a Mallik Wilks cross had struck and arm inside the box, while Josh Emmanuel curled a low shot wide with his left foot.

Shrewsbury were given an opportunity to test Matt Ingram from the edge of the box following Greg Docherty’s foul on Sean Goss, with Goss firing the free kick straight into the goalkeeper’s hands.

Ingram then turned a deflected Oliver Norburn shot wide and, with Shrewsbury enjoying the better of things, they took a 27th-minute lead as Daniels broke through to finish past Ingram.

It became a scrappy affair after that, although Jacob Greaves did go close to finding an equaliser when he got his head on the end of George Honeyman’s free kick. The effort went wide, though, leaving the home side with it all to do in the second half.

Docherty fired an effort just over the bar at the end of a neat corner routine after the break before a double change saw Eaves and Keane Lewis-Potter replace Hakeeb Adelakun and Richie Smallwood.

The home side continued to be frustrated by a stubborn opponent, with a third change seeing Lewie Coyle replace Emmanuel with 11 minutes remaining.

Coyle created the best chance of the afternoon two minutes from time as his cross picked out Honeyman eight yards out, but he lifted his effort over the bar as a disappointing afternoon came to an end.
