MATCH PREVIEW | LUTON TOWN V HULL CITY

20 September 2019

The Hatters will be hosting a Family Fun Day tomorrow as they welcome Hull City to Kenilworth Road, with Graeme Jones’ team aiming to bounce back after losing against QPR last Saturday.

There's plenty going on for the Family Fun Day which will be hosted outside the front of the Kenilworth Road End, so please make sure you get down to the ground nice and early to check it out.

The 3-2 defeat at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium came after a run of three consecutive wins for the Town - beating Barnsley, Cardiff in the Carabao Cup and Huddersfield Town, which secured their first home victory of the season.

With seven points after the first seven matches of the season, Luton sit 16th in the table, whilst their counterparts Hull are below in 20th.

The Tigers have drawn their last two games in the Championship as Wigan denied them a valuable three points in their last match, with an equaliser in the 75th minute to level the game at 2-2.

Hull’s only win of the season thus far came in their first home match of the campaign, a 2-1 victory against Reading.

Contactless card payment will be available around the ground at food and drink kiosks, so please take advantage of this to speed up queuing.

 

GRAEME JONES SAID:

Please be aware – these quotes are taken from Graeme’s press conference on Thursday

On Harry Cornick: “I’ve been really impressed with him, he’s not a squad player, he’s not a substitute, Harry is a guy that has been a really effective player for us. I think Harry is starting to realise that his role has changed and he’s taking responsibility and getting stronger, but he still had to come off after 80 minutes because his body isn’t used to the physicality. He is getting stronger and stronger every week.”

On Grant McCann and what threat his team possesses: “I haven’t come up against Grant McCann at all but obviously Doncaster is one of my former clubs so I followed their progress and they were a challenge tactically. I watched their play-off game last season and they were really competitive with some good players.

“I’ve watched Hull in detail. I watched their last match against Wigan, watched them against Forest, and they are capable of hurting you, like every single Championship club, us included. Hopefully on Saturday they won’t and we will - and we will win the game.

“Grant knows Luton, he’s been here with Doncaster, so he’s got a bit of experience of what’s to come.”

Matthew Pennington is currently on-loan at Hull City from Everton, whom Graeme Jones was assistant at under Roberto Martinez. He is looking forward to seeing the defender again, saying: “Matty is a right-sided centre back. A really intelligent boy, really competitive and good in the air. He was at Ipswich on-loan last season and he’s a good boy Matty, I look forward to seeing him on Saturday.”

 

WHO?

Relegated from the Premier League in 2017, Hull City are now playing their third consecutive season in the Championship. Manager Grant McCann joined the KCOM Stadium outfit in June 2019 after a successful one-year spell with Doncaster Rovers, when he led them to the play-off semi final stages.

 

WHEN AND WHERE?

Kick-off is 3pm at Kenilworth Road on Saturday 21st September.

 

MAN IN THE MIDDLE

LUTON TOWN 0 HULL CITY 3

The Town suffer a second league defeat in a row

21 September 2019

The Hatters suffered second successive league defeat with a 3-0 loss against Hull City at a sold-out Kenilworth Road this afternoon.

Two second half goals from Kevin Stewart and one from Kamil Grosicki resulted in an afternoon to forget for the Town.

Luton started the better of the sides and were on the front foot from the first whistle, but the game eluded their reach as Hull were ruthless towards the end of the contest.

The Hatters began in good fashion as James Bree had the ball on the left hand side and spotted Izzy Brown bursting through the middle. The midfielder unselfishly passed the ball wide to Harry Cornick - who was free in space - but his effort was blocked behind for a corner. 

Minutes later Hull warned the Hatters of their threat going forward as Grosicki went close in the 12th minute.

Jackson Irvine won possession in midfield and played the ball through for Grosicki to run on to, but as he tried to square the ball across goal, Luton nullified the threat and cleared.

Before the half-hour mark, Irvine spurned the best opportunity of the half as he headed over Eric Lichaj’s cross after good play from the Tigers.

Tom Eaves produced the game’s first shot on target just a minute before half-time, but his tame effort was gathered with ease by Simon Sluga.

Hull City took the lead in the 64th minute as Stewart fired the ball into the top left corner as the ball broke to him from 12 yards out.

The away fans thought they had a second just four minutes later but Grosicki’s shot from distance rippled the side netting.

The Town’s first notable chance of the afternoon came in the 71st minute when Ryan Tunnicliffe’s effort was narrowly deflected wide after brilliant individual play from substitute George Moncur.

From the resulting corner, James Bree had a header saved and James Collins hit the post, before George Long gathered the ball and put an end to the attack.

Luton threatened in the latter stages as Andrew Shinnie’s free-kick was headed over by Dan Potts inside the six-yard box. That proved to be costly though as the Tigers went up the other end and got their second. 

The ever dangerous Grosicki was the man who got it, after darting in from the left-hand-side and firing past Sluga into the bottom corner. 

In the 90th minute, the away side got a third after a defensive mix-up. Jarrod Bowen ran through on goal and his effort squirmed under Sluga and in trying to clear, Potts hit the ball against the keeper and left Stewart to force it home.

The 40th meeting between the two sides was without doubt one to forget, as the Hatters now divert their attention to Leicester City in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.

 

TOWN: Sluga, Bolton (Potts 76), Pearson, Bradley, Bree, Tunnicliffe, Shinnie, Brown (Mpanzu 65), LuaLua, (Moncur 65) Cornick, Collins. Subs not used: Lee, Jones, Butterfield, Shea (GK)
