PREVIEW: HULL CITY (H)

6 October 2022

All you need to know ahead of our next Sky Bet Championship fixture

- Huddersfield Town vs Hull City
- Noon kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium
- Match available to listen to on iFollow HTAFC

Huddersfield Town are back at home in the Sky Bet Championship on Sunday 9 October when they welcome Hull City to the John Smith’s Stadium, noon kick-off.

The Terriers go into the game following their 3-3 draw away at Luton Town on Tuesday 4 October.

Hull City will be looking to build momentum after their 2-1 win at home against Wigan Athletic on Wednesday 5 October.

THE OPPOSITION

This is Hull City’s second season the Sky Bet Championship after dropping to League One for the 2020/21 season and then winning automatic promotion straight away back to the Championship.

Andy Dawson was appointed as interim manager on 30 September 2022, following the dismissal of Shota Arveladze ahead of their Sky Bet Championship game against Luton Town due to a run of four league defeats.

Hull City currently sit 17th in the table after having won four, drawn two, and lost six out of their 12 games of the season so far.

ONES TO WATCH

Lewie Coyle

The defender joined the Tigers in August 2020 from Fleetwood Town on a three-year-deal, with the option of a further 12 months. The right-back came through the ranks at Leeds United, joining at the age of 10 and making his professional debut at 20-years-old. Coyle played a key-role in helping Hull City make an immediate return to the Championship by securing the League One title and he was given the opportunity to captain on multiple occasions. Ahead of the 2022.23 season, the 26-year-old was appointed as captain of his hometown club.

Ozan Tufan

The midfielder, who can also play right back and right winger, arrived in Yorkshire this summer after transferring from Turkish side Fenerbahҫe on a three-year-deal. Hull City isn’t the first English side Tufan has joined as he spent a short loan spell with Watford in the Premier League last season. The Turkish international has made nine appearances for the Tigers so far this season, scoring two right footed shots inside the box in this time.

Óscar Estupiñán

Another summer signing for the Tigers, Estupiñán joined from Portuguese side Vitória de Guimarães on a three-year-deal. The Columbian forward remains the top scorer in the Championship after he scored seven goals in the first month and was awarded the EFL Championship Player of the Month award for August. Out of these seven goals, he scored a hat-trick against Coventry City and will be looking to add to his seven goals when he plays Town.

Match Reports

MATCH REPORT: TOWN 2-0 HULL CITY

9 October 2022

A first win under Head Coach Mark Fotheringham!

- A report on Huddersfield Town’s win over Hull City
- An own goal and Michał Helik’s first for the Club seal 2-0 win
- Intensity pushes Town over the line

Huddersfield Town recorded a first win under new Head Coach Mark Fotheringham on Sunday afternoon, beating visitors Hull City by two goals.

An own goal from Hull skipper Lewie Coyle gave Town notable confidence midway through the first half before Michał Helik’s first for the Club early in the second period gave us a lead we never looked like losing.

Town will play more fluently in the future, but this was exactly what the doctor ordered – a performance full of intensity and determination, as well as a resilience that brought about a second clean sheet of the campaign.

Hull started relatively brightly on the day on the back of their first win under Andy Dawson in midweek, and Greek international Dimitrios Pelkas had the first effort of the game inside six minutes with a long-range effort that flew over the bar.

Town fought back, looking as strong as ever from set pieces. Sorba Thomas’ excellent 12th minute delivery was initially cleared, but Holmes and Rhodes combined with headers to find Tom Lees in the area. He met the ball on the volley but directed his effort straight at the goalkeeper.

Longman and Pelkas sent other long-range efforts wide of target soon before Lees got on the end of another set-piece, chesting Thomas’ near post corner wide whilst complaining he was being held back.

Another corner led to the opening Town goal in the 29th minute. Thomas’ initial delivery was cleared out of the box to Etienne Camara, who initially got fortunate with a loose first touch before taking control of the ball. The Frenchman squared up midfielder Regan Slater before going on his outside and powering a cross towards the six-yard box, where Coyle inadvertently sent a powerful header past his own goalkeeper!

Town improved after the opener, but Hull’s best chance of the game came just before the interval when a pass forward saw Ryan Longman beat the offside trap. Fortunately, the Hull man placed his shot wide of Nicholls’ right-hand post in what was a big let-off for the Terriers.

Hull made a half time switch and changed their shape, but Town came out of the break as the better side with Fotheringham’s words ringing in their ears. Jordan Rhodes, whose movement off the ball was excellent all afternoon, soon forced Coyle to clear an attempted lob behind before wing back Ben Jackson was asking for a penalty after clashing with Cyrus Christie in the area, to no avail.

Town capitalised on that good start with a second in the 51st minute. It was another set piece that started the move after Jackson was clattered on the left by Slater, allowing Thomas to deliver into the area again. Yuta Nakayama, back in the side and impressive on the afternoon, won the first header and picked out Ward, who did brilliantly to stand the ball back up to the far post. A defender was under the ball, but Helik completely overpowered him to head home from very close range.

Hull made three changes as they chased the game, but Town went the closest to another goal just after the hour. Jackson delivered yet another set piece into the area where Lees won the first ball; Rhodes collected and volleyed goalwards, only for goalkeeper Nathan Baxter to tip the ball onto the post. Helik poked the ball back to Lees, but the defender’s follow-up was blocked on the line!

The visitors started to enjoy more possession as they threw caution to the wind, but Helik in particular stood strong – making two excellent tackles to deny their top scorer Óscar Estupiñán. Their best effort was a long-range effort from substitute Greg Docherty, which was tipped over by Nicholls.

There was even time to give B Team striker Charles Ondo his senior debut as the men in blue and white comfortably saw out the game.
