Hull City v Leeds Utd

Saturday 29th February 2020 12.30 | KCOM Stadium


Leeds are the visitors to the KCOM Stadium on Saturday for a lunchtime kick off against local rivals Hull City. The Whites will be full of confidence as they stretched their winning run to three games following their one-nil win at The Riverside Stadium midweek. Meanwhile 60 miles due East, Hull's only victory of 2020 came on New Years Day against the Sheffield Wednesday. Since the turn of the year they have scored 9, but conceded 20.

The January departures of Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki may have raised between £12-15m but with with the Allam family in charge, I would expect the money to be invested back into their club. Hull's latest defeat, at home v Barnsley saw the Tigers drop to 17th place in the table, four points and five places from the drop zone. Following the defeat Tigers Manager Grant McCann warned his players what a similar performance would mean on Saturday against Leeds:-

We’ve got a very, very tough game on Saturday. One of the best teams in the league are coming here. If we perform like we did (against Barnsley) then we’ll get hammered. That’s exactly what I’ve told the group. We need to roll our sleeves up now, do it for themselves, do it for their families, do it for this football club. They need to start taking responsibility and that’s everyone.



With Kiko Casilla now banned for the next eight games, French U20 shot stopper Illan Messlier is likely to take the gloves for Leeds. Kalvin Phillips faces a late fitness test having sustained a dead leg a week ago against Reading. Ben White will deputise, as he did midweek against Middlesbrough with Berardi stepping into defence.

Patrick Bamford will once again lead the forward line. Recent £15m loan signing Jean-Kevin Augustin picked up a minor muscle injury which Bielsa confidently predicts will keep the big man on the treatment table until next week. The 22 year old has played less than 50 minutes for the Whites since signing over a month ago on loan. Last time out between the sides Leeds won 2-0 thanks to a de Wijs own goal and and end to end effort finished off by Alioski in the eighty third minute.

And the Leeds fans in great voice... you would think they were the only ones in the stadium.

That 2nd half was a beautiful watch although we have to remember Hull are in a very bad state, we've just rubbed salt into their wounds as I expected us to do!
Ya that second goal killed them off and we can’t get ahead of ourselves as there will be tougher tasks ahead but great to give everyone a lift, especially the players

Didn't take a lot, they're not the brightest bunch.

At least the Cardiff and Millwall ones, take as good as they give. Even though they've been seen very infrequently of late, wonder why that is. :duno:
🤣

No I just like to view other teams’ forums a bit like Cjay does from time to time. Can’t be bothered to waste my time on idiots like those on 606, but sometimes you do find reasonable people on other sites and I enjoy seeing what they’ve got to say. The Hull bunch were just idiots, I mean offering a bare knuckle punch with fellow posters on there just sums them up.

Really enjoyed what you had to say, but enjoyed them biting even more :)
