Match Previews

Lewis-Potter set to return at Stevenage

27 November 2020

Grant McCann has confirmed that young winger Keane Lewis-Potter will be in the match day squad for the Tigers’ Emirates FA Cup round two clash against Stevenage.

The forward, who has scored six goals so far this season, has been building his fitness back up after a period of self-isolation and is now ready to play a part in Grant McCann’s side once again.

Elsewhere, Greg Docherty and Reece Burke will miss this Sunday’s trip to the Lamex Stadium.

Docherty has recovered from injury but will not be risked, whilst Reece Burke will undergo a minor operation to repair a broken nose sustained in the Burton Albion clash. The duo are set to be available for Wednesday’s Sky Bet League One fixture against Doncaster Rovers.

McCann has also confirmed that he will make changes for the Emirates FA Cup fixture this weekend.

The Tigers’ Head Coach says he wants to rest some players ahead of a busy Christmas schedule, while giving opportunities to those waiting for an opportunity to play.

Speaking on his team selection ahead of the weekend, McCann said: “We haven’t finalised it just yet but there will be changes to the team.

“I think it’s important with the amount of games we’ve got this coming month that we give people a rest where we can and give others some game time so that they’re sharp for when we need them.

“There will be changes to the team, but as I’ve mentioned before, we’ve got good depth here and players are affecting the game when they come off the bench or when they play in the Papa John’s Trophy.

“They’re all chomping at the bit to play so we’ll be giving them an opportunity.”

Stevenage 1-1 Hull City (6-5 on pens): Match Report

29 November 2020

Hull City were knocked out of the FA Cup in the second round after a shock penalty shootout defeat by League Two strugglers Stevenage.

Normal time finished level as Tom Eaves’ 52nd-minute spot-kick was cancelled out by substitute Elliott List’s powerful 79th-minute finish.

In the shootout, George Long saved from Tom Pett but his opposite number Jamie Cumming denied Eaves and Sean McLoughlin to send Boro through to round three.

Grant McCann made 10 changes for Hull City’s first-ever meeting with Stevenage, with Regan Slater the only survivor from the impressive win at Ipswich.

Eaves, the scorer of the third goal at Portman Road, started up front and Hull-born Lewie Coyle captained the side.

Forty-four league places separated the teams at kick-off but there was nothing between them in a keenly-fought first half.

The Tigers started the stronger; Dan Batty’s outside-of-the-boot 25-yarder sailed wide and Martin Samuelsen headed James Scott’s accurate cross tamely into the arms of Cumming.

Stevenage, fourth bottom in League Two, came into the contest with Danny Newton powering a header over the bar from Tom Pett’s corner.

Newton should have put Boro in front after 16 minutes when Remeao Hutton fizzed a teasing centre into the near post but the forward’s close-range effort somehow deflected wide.

It was a big let-off for the Tigers, who instantly responded with a good chance of their own.

Jordy de Wijs’ thumping headed clearance found its way to Eaves, who effortlessly shrugged off Terence Vancooten before stinging the palms of Cumming with a fierce drive.

Thomas Mayer cut infield and arrowed a left-footed shot wide before standing up a cross for Samuelsen to nod down but just past the upright.

Boro were proving more than a match for their higher league opponents and continued to give the away defence plenty to think about.

Aramide Oteh’s right-footed drive was palmed away at the near post by George Long, who then got down low to keep out Newton’s first-time 20-yard strike.

Chances were coming at both ends, James Scott going close six minutes before the interval with a driven effort which forced Cumming into another fine save.

After a frustrating first period, Hull City broke the deadlock seven minutes into the second half.

Luke Prosser clipped Samuelsen inside the area and Eaves thumped the resulting penalty low beyond Cumming into the bottom corner.

That lead was almost wiped out immediately as Hutton picked out Pett in the middle but his scrambled effort was grabbed by Long on the line.

Batty’s wide free-kick forced a back-peddling Cumming to tip over and substitute Keane Lewis-Potter, making his first appearance since returning from self-isolation, curled another set-piece straight at the Chelsea loanee.

Samuelsen had a decent opportunity to extend the visitors’ advantage from Batty’s half-cleared free-kick but dragged wide from the edge of the box.

Spirited Stevenage had given a performance that belied their lowly league position and hit back with 12 minutes left.

A ricochet inside the box broke fortuitously for List to swivel and lash a venomous right-footed drive into the roof of the net from eight yards.

Samuelsen had two chances in quick succession to restore the Tigers’ lead, seeing one effort blocked before firing another wastefully over when he should have done better.

Neither side could find a winner in the closing stages as the tie headed into extra time.

Newton almost gave Boro a shock lead in the 99th minute when his spectacular long-range strike was tipped over by Long.

Eaves headed onto the roof of the net from Batty’s centre as Hull City’s frustrations continued, with goalmouth action at a premium during the additional half-hour.
