HULL CITY PREVIEW

5 November 2021

Everything you need to know ahead of Saturday's clash with the Tigers here at Oakwell!

We are back in action on home soil this weekend, welcoming Hull City in a 3pm kick-off in the Sky Bet Championship. 

In a busy week at Oakwell, that started with the departure of Markus Schopp, the mood has been lifted somewhat thanks to the Reds' display on Wednesday evening, under the guidance of interim head coach, Joseph Laumann.

That midweek victory against Derby County - the first win since August - earned the Reds a massive three points against the only side below them in the table, and took them above Saturday's opponents in the process.

This despite going a goal down inside the first quarter of the match. The Rams, taking a lead through Sam Baldock, never quite asserted any dominance and it was Laumann's charges who quickly wrestled back the initative. 

Victor Adeboyejo levelled up proceedings just before half-time with his first goal in nearly 12 months, before Aaron Leya Iseka scored the winner shortly after the break, finishing expertly in front of an adoring Ponty End. 

The visitors battled away in the closing stages, throwing lots at the Reds' rearguard, but Barnsley held on for a precious three points.

Saturday sees us visited by another club down here in the relegation places with us. The Tigers of Hull City arrive on Grove Street off the back of five consecutive league defeats, the most recent being Wednesday evening's 1-0 reverse at West Bromwich Albion.

Led by former Reds midfielder Grant McCann, the Humberside club are desperate for some kind of stability, after a tumultuous few years moving between the divisions. They are currently second-bottom of the Sky Bet Championship table, courtesy only of Derby County’s points deduction.

The Tigers actually began the new season in ideal fashion, thumping Preston North End 4-1 away from home on the opening day of the campaign, but it’s been a sorry tale thereafter. Just the one win since then (2-0 at home against Middlesbrough at the start of October).

GOMES PRE-HULL

5 November 2021

It’s a City squad with three familar faces in it. The Australian international defender Callum Elder had a brief loan-spell here in 2017, making five appearances. Enigmatic midfielder George Moncur spent a couple of years here before moving onto Luton Town and tricky forward Mallik Wilks had a short stay in 2019, before teaming back up with McCann and rediscovering his goalscoring form with the Tigers.

In terms of a key man, we'll look no further than 20-year-old forward Keane Lewis-Potter. He has three goals to his name so far in 21/22 and will definitely need to be kept in check by the Reds’ backline. He scored Hull’s goal the last time we met in this fixture, back in 2019.

That afternoon saw us 3-1 victors, as we escaped relegation that campaign, whilst the Tigers, who'd challenged for the play-offs in the first half of that season, fell away and eventually through the trapdoor and into League One.

Faith in McCann prove justified however. Last season saw Hull crowned champions of the third tier, an instant return for the men in black and amber.

Saturday's man in the middle is Stephen Martin. The Staffordshire official will be taking control of his third Reds game of the season, having already overseen our draw at Cardiff on the opening day and September's defeat at Blackpool.

This will be the referee's first trip to Oakwell since August of 2019, a 3-1 defeat against Luton Town.

REDS BEATEN BY HULL

6 November 2021

Barnsley fell to a disappointing 2-0 defeat against Hull City in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Goals from George Honeyman and Keane Lewis-Potter either side of the break consigned the Reds to defeat at Oakwell heading into the international break.

Barnsley were positive in the early exchanges, threatening the Tigers’ area but to no avail. Hull grew into the game, seeing a couple of efforts flash wide, but nothing to worry the Reds’ defence.

We looked a threat on the counter-attack as Devante Cole broke away on the right, beating George Honeyman, who cynically brought down the forward just outside the area, on the left-hand side.

Josh Benson took the resulting free-kick, which found Cole in the area, but he headed over from close range.

Both teams enjoyed chances at either end of the pitch, with Callum Brittain stinging the palms of Nathan Baxter just after the half hour mark.

Good work from Lewie Coyle on the right-hand side allowed the Tigers full back to deliver an enticing ball across the six-yard box. Jasper Moon reacted, diverting the ball towards Collins’ goal and the Reds’ keeper made a fantastic reaction save, which fell for Honeyman in the area who made no mistake, rifling the ball home on 33 minutes.

Barnsley tried to respond before the interval, but an Aaron Leya Iseka effort on the break sailed over the bar.

HALF-TIME: Barnsley 0-1 Hull City

The second half began quietly, with the first notable action coming when the referee produced a yellow card for Hull defender Jacob Greaves.

Substitute, Styles nearly made an immediate impact on the left flank, driving and drilling a low shot on goal, but City stopper Baxter was equal to the effort.

The visitors all but confirmed their victory in the 75th minute, however. Lewis-Potter found himself in space in the area and worked the angle to drill low and hard into the net.

Shortly after, Ryan Longman rattled the post following a quick Tigers breakaway, while Collins was also on hand to keep out Richie Smallwood’s fierce drive as Hull left Oakwell with the spoils.

FULL-TIME: Barnsley 0-2 Hull City

 

Reds XI: Collins (GK), J Williams (Styles), Kitching, Brittain, Woodrow (C), Benson (Palmer), Leya Iseka, Moon, Gomes, Helik, Cole (Adeboyejo).

Unused subs: Walton (GK), Andersen, Vita, Frieser.
