Hull City produced a superb home performance and one of the convincing football scores of the Championship weekend. There was no doubt an element of luck to their opener when Keane Lewis-Potter hit the post from close range. The ball rebounded off the post onto goalkeeper Joe Lumley’s head into the net. The second goal also had an element of luck when substitute Mallik Wilks’ shot hit the post before going into the net. This was the first win for the Tigers since their win on the opening day of the season.
Hull’s Grant McCann: “It’s a good win, given the circumstances. It’s never easy to play against a Neil Warnock side – we had to match them and fight and battle. We rode our luck at times, of course, we did, but we had to stay strong.” he added. “You need a bit of luck in games. It’s a great strike from Keane, but sometimes you need that luck – it just hits the goalkeeper. We’ve got a lot of young players learning on the job and we’re only going to grow and get better.”
Middlesbrough’s Neil Warnock: “It was a shock, really – I don’t know how we’ve not won the game. We’ve had all those chances, and then the ball hits the goalie on the back of the head – he’s our best striker at the minute. When it’s one of those days, it’s one of those days. You’re not going to get any better chances than we had (in the second half). I don’t know what else I can do if I’m honest.”
