Hull v Albion match preview

8 November 2019

Slaven Bilić’s Baggies will search for their sixth away win of the season against Hull City at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday (ko 3pm).

Hull City

Their last outing

In their most recent game, Hull beat Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage.

Josh Bowler fired in their opening goal in the first ten minutes, with Jarrod Bowen adding the second just before the hour mark.

Tom Eaves completed the scoring with six minutes of normal time left to play.

Hull: Long; Lichaj, de Wijs, Burke, Elder; Toral (Stewart 63), Grosicki, Bowler (Eaves 54), Irvine (Honeyman 88), Da Silva Lopes; Bowen.

Substitutes: Ingram, Tafazolli, Pennington, Batty.

In the dugout

During Grant McCann's playing career he played for West Ham, Cheltenham Town, Barnsley, Scunthorpe United, Peterborough United and Linfield, as well as making 39 appearances for Northern Ireland.

After a short time at Linfield, McCann decided to move into coaching at Peterborough in 2015, taking on the manager's job in 2016. Grant spent two seasons at London Road, departing in February 2018 and taking on the Doncaster job in June 2018.

In his one season at Doncaster, McCann took Donny to the Play-Off Final but lost out to Charlton who gained promotion. 

One to watch

Jarrod Bowen has netted nine Sky Bet Championship goals so far this season, including five goals in the Tigers’ last four games.

The 22-year-old fired in 22 goals in 46 second-tier games during the last campaign.

Our last meeting

Albion most recently faced the Tigers at The Hawthorns in April. Kieran Gibbs opened the scoring just before the break, but Todd Kane netted a quick-fire double to hand Hull the advantage before the hour mark.

The Baggies replied soon after, with Dwight Gayle firing in an equaliser - and then with five minutes left to play, Gayle scored a late winner to give the home side all three points.

Match Reports

Hull City 0 Albion 1

9 November 2019

Albion will spend the season’s third international break top of the Sky Bet Championship after a hard-fought but merited victory at inform Hull City today.

A solitary first-half strike from skipper Jake Livermore, back at his old club, separated the teams for the remainder of the game.

Albion had to protect that lead to the finishing line as they were unable to find a killer second goal from some wonderful approach play in the second half.

But Livermore’s 28th-minute strike was sufficient – although the victory did not arrive without a disappointing postscript for Albion.

Both Livermore and Romaine Sawyers were booked and hit the mark which will mean suspension for both when Albion return to action at The Hawthorns against Sheffield Wednesday in a fortnight.

Albion had dominated the first half and twice before the goal Grady Diangana had gone close as the Baggies fluent football began to stretch the home side.

He opted for a near-post finish which he dragged wide in the 18th minute before climbing to win a header which just cleared the bar a couple of minutes later.

The Baggies were the victims of their own ambitions in the 23rd minute when a move broke down out on the left and suddenly Hull had players clear for the counter attack.

But Kamil Grosicki rolled his finish wide from a scoring position and the Baggies made him pay just before the half hour.

Home keeper George Long went full stretch to tip away a super Matt Phillips shot from a short-corner routine which caught Hull napping – and when Albion repeated the trick from the corner which followed Livermore slammed home a terrific right-foot finish into the corner.

The Baggies then withstood Hull’s spirited start to the second half before once more exerting control.

And that should have brought more goals with Diangana going closest as he shaved the outside of a post – Matheus Periera was just as close a few seonds later – when Albion put together some of those slick, quick passing phases which the Baggies fans are loving this season.

Nevertheless, 2000-plus travelling supporters had the chance to salute the players at the end of another impressive away performance that leaves Albion bang on course in their quest for promotion.

Albion: Johnstone; Furlong, Ajayi, Bartley, Townsend, Sawyers, Livermore, Phillips (Krovinovic 62), Pereira, Diangana (Edwards 77), Robson-Kanu (Zohore 90).

Subs: Bond, Brunt, Austin, Hegazi.
