19:492 years ago

Bowyer knows this will be tough ask for his players, but he remains optimistic

The Charlton manager admitted that Hull will be tough opposition, but thinks his team have got what it takes to get a result. “It’s going to be tough, there’s no getting away from that. But, as a group we have a good togetherness and good fighting spirit. We’ve been under pressure before – last season – I think we’ve learnt a lot.

“In some teams, once we get to the nitty gritty – i.e. this Saturday – some players aren’t going to be able to handle the pressure. That’s just natural. Some will grasp it, and some will fade away from the pressure. Im just hoping that my group stick together – which I know they will – and they will come through it. But its going to be tough, not just for us, but for all teams… it’s going to be difficult to sustain the level, especially towards the end of the games.”

19:482 years ago

McCann upbeat for bottom of the table clash

McCann told the media on Thursday, “Everyone in the group is really looking forward to the game. We’ve had a good few weeks of training and some good friendly games to help us prepare. We’ve trained at the KCOM as well and we understand what everything will look and feel like with no fans inside.

”I’ve been really impressed with the mentality of the group since they’ve come back. They understand we’ve got nine big games, starting against Charlton at the weekend, and we want to get off to a good start. As I say, it’s a game that we’re all looking forward to and hopefully we can come away with the right result.”

Charlton looking for only their fourth away win all season

Lee Bowyer will have hope that the COVID-19 lockdown and subsequent suspension of the league didn't come at a bad time - they had registered wins against Nottingham Forest and Birmingham before the shut down in Mid March. How will his side fare against a Hull squad with plenty returning from injury?
19:292 years ago

Grant McCann's Hull City are looking to record only their second League win of 2020

Hull City have had a woeful start to 2020, with their last win in the league coming on New Year's Day away at Sheffield Wednesday. 

Injury and transfers out of the club saw Hull looking very likely to slide down the division and go down to League One for the first time since 2005.

However, could the suspension of the league have come at a good time for the Tigers, with plenty of players returning from injury?
