Match Preview: Hull City vs Brentford

Thomas Frank's Bees head to Humberside

14 December 2018

Brentford head north tomorrow to take on Hull City at The KCOM Stadium. Thomas Frank's Bees will be looking for a first win in five Sky Bet Championship matches when they take to the field to. Below you will find all the latest info, team news, and match build-up ahead of the clash.

THE OPPOSITION

It's been an uninspiring start to the season for long-suffering Hull City fans as fortunes, on and off the pitch, continue to give little cause for optimism. 

With owner Assem Allam still trying to find a buyer for the club, investment on the pitch has remained limited since The Tigers dropped out of the Premier League in May 2017 and, as such, City have found it difficult to escape the lower reaches of the Championship table. That being said, Nigel Adkins side do head into Saturday's game on a run of just one defeat in seven and are unbeaten in their last three. 

A quick look through City's results quickly shows where their issues have lain this season. Adkins' side have scored just seven home goals all term, only netting more than once on one occasion. 

Given the uncertainty surrounding the ownership of the club, the majority of the summer transfer business involved players departing, rather than arriving. Reece Burke, Jordy de Wijs, Todd Kane, Tommy Elphick, and Chris Martin have all played major roles since their summer arrivals, replacing the likes of Michael Dawson, Seb Larsson, Abel Hernandez, Allan McGregor, and David Meyler. 

TEAM NEWS

Nigel Adkins is planning to be without Eric Lichaj and Reece Burke for tomorrow's game while he's also sweating on the fitness of Jordy de Wijs. 

For The Bees, Emiliano Marcondes and Lewis Macleod face prolonged spells out through injury but the rest of the squad is fit, and available to start. 

THE MANAGER

Nigel Adkins played as a goalkeeper for Tranmere Rovers and Wigan Athletic and was player-boss at Bangor City before he turned 30. After retirement he trained as a physiotherapist and was promoted from the treatment room to the dugout at Scunthorpe United in November 2006. He won promotion in his first season in charge and then took The Iron back up in 2009 after a subsequent relegation.

Having then kept Scunthorpe up, Adkins left for Southampton, and won back-to-back promotions from League One to the Premier League between 2010 and 2012. Adkins was sacked by Southampton in January 2013 with The Saints comfortably placed in the top flight and he took over at Reading a few months later. He lasted just over a year at The Madjeski Stadium before a stint at Sheffield United preceded his appointment on Humberside almost exactly a year ago.

LAST-TIME AROUND

Ahead of Saturday's trip to Hull City, take a look back to our 3-2 win over The Tigers on Humberside back in September 1998.

Match Report: Hull City 2 Brentford 0

Fraizer Campbell’s first-half brace condemns Bees to defeat at The KCOM Stadium

15 December 2018

Fraizer Campbell’s first-half brace condemned Brentford to a Sky Bet Championship defeat against Hull City.

The former Manchester United man struck with two predatory efforts, leaving The Bees with a mountain to climb after just 21 minutes of play. Brentford looked better after the break - Saïd Benrahma coming close on a couple of occasions – but it was the hosts who earned the three points on a freezing afternoon in East Yorkshire.  

Thomas Frank made two changes to the side that suffered defeat against Swansea City last Saturday. Kamohelo Mokotjo was selected in the heart of midfield alongside Nico Yennaris and Romaine Sawyers, and Julian Jeanvier – making his first appearance for The Bees since September - partnered Chris Mepham at centre-back.

Having collected an Ollie Watkins pass inside the Hull area, Benrahma dropped a shoulder before bending narrowly wide of the far post on four minutes. Mokotjo saw a long-range effort deflect off Daniel Batty during a positive opening spell for Frank’s side.

The Tigers took the lead on 13 minutes with their first attack of the game; Kamil Grosicki’s scuffed shot bounced over Daniel Bentley and Fraizer Campbell was at hand to fire home from close range. It was a blow for Brentford who had started the brighter at The KCOM Stadium.  

Campbell doubled his and Hull’s tally eight minutes later. Henrik Dalsgaard was robbed of possession at right-back, allowing Jackson Irvine a clear path into The Bees’ area. The Australian international’s shot was parried by Bentley, and once again it was a case of right place, right time for Campbell who tucked away on the rebound.

A one-two between Nico Yennaris and Ollie Watkins had Hull as sixes and sevens on 32 minutes, but the former’s first-time effort was fired straight down the throat of David Marshall.

Benrahma dipped a free-kick well wide of Marshall’s post shortly after the interval as Brentford sought to reduce the deficit.

Moses Odubajo and Sergi Canós was introduced shortly after the hour mark and it was the latter who threatened three minutes after crossing the white line, fizzing a low shot wide of the near post from the right-hand side of the area.

Brentford had a glorious opportunity to find the net on 67 minutes but Benrahma blazed over the bar having received a square pass from Neal Maupay. The Algerian added to the shot tally again on 73 minutes, landing a free-kick from the edge of the area on the roof of Marshall’s net.

The Bees enjoyed plenty of possession during the closing stages, but a resolute Tigers defence secured a victory for the hosts.
