George Long can't wait to get going at the weekend as Hull City's first game of the 2020/21 season looms large.
The Tigers begin the new campaign with a Carabao Cup trip to Sunderland on Saturday and, with his focus firmly on helping Grant McCann’s men make a positive start at the Stadium of Light, Long is ready and raring to go ahead of the tie.
“It’s about getting momentum from the off,” he said. “We’ve got the Carabao Cup game up first at Sunderland which is equally as important as we need to gain that winning feeling to build momentum for the league.
“The games will come thick and fast so it’s about quickly turning around, recovering and, like I said, getting that momentum going.
“The cup game is a great way to kick us off. It’s a great stadium and I’ve never played there before, so I’m excited for that.
“It’s going to be a tough test to start us off but one we can win. I think it’s important to get a little cup run going, whether it’s the Carabao Cup or the FA Cup. We just want to win games and that’s the aim in every competition we’re involved in this season.”
