Discussion in 'Hull City' started by John Ex Aberdeen now E.R., Nov 8, 2016.
Get there early, as there will be thousands of Wendies supporters there as per usual.
Finished 3-2 to wendies.
Just back from the game, it was an entertaining one, City being the footballing side against a big physical Wendies side. Wendies started the better but no real chance in the early stages, City started to grow into the game, but were caught on the counter when pressing and a quick raid down the left with the ball crossed in to the middle and Hirst finished well to the left of Saltmer.
City continue to press and got their reward with a lovely goal. Bowen who had switched to the right, got the ball just outside the area and held the ball up well and then put a lovely reverse pass through to Ter Horst to run onto and his speed got him to the ball first and lifted it over the keeper as he went down to try and block.
1-1 at HT.
Wendies started the better in the 2nd half and pressed City back for the first 10 minutes, but then City like the first half started to gain the upper hand, but were caught again on the counter whereby a quick long ball down the right saw Stobbs put the ball into Hirst who finished clinically.
City came back well and with about 5 minutes to go got there reward for pushing for the equaliser when the ball was put into the box and handled by the Wendies centre back. Bowen stepped up and gave the keeper no chance put his shot bottom left hand corner.
Unfortunately Wendies pressed for the winner and more or less were awarded a penalty when Hirst was brought down in the box, and he got up to put the penalty passed Saltmer which was in the 89 minutes.
Finish 2-3, it was a good game to watch, City for me try to put the ball in the air too much and with the height of the Wendies side it was meat and drink for them.
Wednesdays No.3 Warren Clarke? He's never U23.
U23' at home to Coventry at the KCOM this evening, I'll be there anyone else going?
Playing U23 games at the KCOM (I know some have been played at Ferriby as well) surely contributes to the pitch problems ?
It's a requirement of Cat 2 Academy status that a certain amount of academy games must be played at a club's first team ground.
That was my first thought, but we have no home game now for nearly 3 weeks with the international break. Under Category 2 development squad rules you have to play I think it is 5 games at the stadium each season, so these have already been scheduled in at the beginning of the season.
That rule's probably inserted to guarantee that players play on a decent surface at least 5 times a season....
Just wonder if Curtis might get a run out tonight?
We're 2-1 up.
There's a trialist playing who apparently just played a lovely ball to Bowen who got the second.
Is he Portugese? Cos that would be good
Who is it?
HT 2-1 (McKenzie and Bowen)
No idea who the trialist is.
The trialist is Liam Edwards from Swansea.
Ter Horst just hit the post.
Trialist Liam Edwards with an excellent run on the right, takes it right in on the keeper and slides home coolly.
These updates are from Rick by the way.
Just back from the game, which turned out to be an entertaining affair. First 15 minutes was even and City started to grow into the game, but Coventry struck first when city was caught short and the back and Devon Kelly-Evans was set up and tapped it home. 1-0 Coventry. But not for long, City went straight up the other end and the ball fell to McKenzie just outside the box, and drilled it low into the right side of the goal. 1-1
City then started to get on top and some good work by the Trialist Liam Edwards (from Swansea I understand) drove into the box and laid it off to Bowen who made no mistake putting it passed Addai (who looked enormous must have been 6'5"). 2-1 City.
Just before half time Annan hit the post with a flick after the ball was crossed by Ter Horst nearly 3-1. However City immediately after this had to thank Andrews their keeper to keep it at 2-1, as from their own box Coventry countered and Devon Kelly-Evans got put through one on one with Andrews who spread himself to block his goal attempt. HT 2-1 City.
City made 3 changes for the 2nd half Tymon, Bowen & Maslen-Jones were replaced by Fleming Hinchliffe & Ritson. City started well and looked better defensively in the 2nd half, and container Coventry quite easily. The 3rd goal was a nice move down the right which put in the trialist Liam Edwards in one goal who took it well to score and put City 3-1 up.
The rest of the half was pretty much controlled by City, they had one scare whereby Ritson, who over all looked quite good hit a back pass short to Andrews, which put Sayoud in on goal but Andrews bravely went down at his feet to smoother the ball and save the day.
Annan was my MOTM, Edwards the trialist look tidy and did his chances no harm with an assist and a goal. Olley and Batty were very good as per usual.
The Tigers’ Development Squad got back on the winning trail as they came from behind to beat Coventry City 3-1 at the KCOM Stadium on Monday night.
Jon Beale made five changes to the side that lost to Sheffield Wednesday a week earlier. Charlie Andrew took over in goal from the injured Johnny Saltmer and Ellis Barkworth, Josh Tymon and Brad Maslen-Jones returned to the City defence, replacing James Yates, Brandon Fleming and Lewis Ritson. Ben Hinchliffe dropped to the bench to make way for a trialist striker.
It was the visitors who almost opened the scoring in the early stages of the match but Maslen-Jones produced a great block to deny Devon Kelly-Evans.
At the other end Greg Olley had the first chance for the Tigers but he lifted his strike from the edge of the box over the bar.
Coventry again went close when Cian Harries was on the end of a corner but his header was cleared off the line by Tymon at the back post.
A low cross from Jarrod Bowen then caused problems for the Coventry defence with Darragh Leahy’s interception just clearing the crossbar.
The visitors opened the scoring in the 21st minute when good work from Jordan Shipley gave Kelly-Evans the opportunity to shoot low past Andrew.
However, the Coventry’s lead didn’t last long as Hull equalised just moments later. Robbie McKenzie picked up the ball on the edge of the area, worked the ball inside, and found the bottom corner from 25-yards out to level proceedings.
In a frantic ten minute spell, the Tigers suddenly found themselves ahead. Bowen was played through on goal and produced a delicate chip over the onrushing Addai to make it 2-1.
Coventry had a good chance for an immediate equaliser but Leahy headed wide from Shipley’s corner.
Will Annan did likewise at the other end from a Dan Batty corner before Addai did well to deny the trialist and Barkworth fired over from Bowen’s cross.
Annan came within inches of adding a third shortly before the break, when his flick from Johan Ter Horst’s cross came back off the post. The visitors immediately broke away and created a chance of their own only for Andrew to save well from Kelly-Evans.
The Tigers made a triple substitution during the interval with Fleming, Ritson and Hinchliffe replacing Tymon, Maslen-Jones and Bowen.
Addai saved from Annan at the start of the second period but the keeper was beaten by Ter Horst’s shot just minutes later, although the frame of the goal came to rescue of the Sky Blues once again as the effort rebounded off the post.
Ter Horst and Annan combined well to create a chance for Hinchliffe but his shot was wide of the near post and just a minute later Hinchliffe’s next chance went wide of the far post.
The Tigers continued to come forward, looking threatening at each attack and soon gave themselves breathing space as the trialist advanced on goal and slid the ball under Addai from aright angle inside the box.
Coventry were not finished yet though with Kelly-Evans firing a free-kick against the crossbar and then seeing his right foot strike from the edge of the box well kept out by Andrew.
But the Tigers saw the game out to end a four-game losing streak in the league and retain second place in the Professional Development League North table.
