Hull City

McCann Confident Clinical Edge Will Be Found

13 September 2019
Grant McCann wants to see his Hull City side find a clinical edge when they return to Sky Bet Championship action against Wigan Athletic on Saturday afternoon.

The Tigers take on the Latics at the KCOM Stadium looking for a second league win of the season and, having seen his team create plenty of goal-scoring chances during the opening month of the campaign, McCann is keen to see an improvement in the conversion rate.

“We’re doing a lot of things right, but the bit that we’re not doing right is taking the chances that we’re creating,” said McCann.

“We’re creating so many chances and we’re having an average of something like 7.5 shots per game from inside the opposition’s penalty box, which is a lot. For us to have only scored five goals in six games from inside the box – we know where we need to improve and to get better as a team.

“I feel that will come because the more we continue to do the work that we are doing, the goals will come.”

McCann is expecting a tough game against Wigan but, as always, will be sending the Tigers out in search of three points.

“We try to win every game and this one will be no different,” added McCann.

“It will be tough because Paul Cook’s side are always difficult in terms of the way that they pass and probe, and they have also recruited well so we will have to be on our guard.

“Every time we play at home we see it as an opportunity and it will be no different this Saturday.”
