71.9% pass success rate, 1.9 shots a game: The Hull star Tigers are relying on for safety



Hull City will remain confident that they can stay up this year with them possessing a far better attack than many around them.

It’s been a pretty baffling year at the KCOM with them scoring plenty of goals – enough to be up in the top half for sure – but shipping far too many too.

Indeed, it’s that that has dragged them down but their lethal attack should fire them to safety – especially with our latest FLW Spotlight subject involved: Jarrod Bowen…

For all Hull’s woes this season they’ve played some great, expansive football at times and Bowen has been at the centre of everything good that has been done.

13 goals so far underlines that he is a man better than this division already at his young age, though it is perhaps clear he could help with the assists total a bit more!

For someone who isn’t an out and out forward – more a second striker – he doesn’t set things up too often but that is hardly something Nigel Adkins will care about right now and that’s not to say he doesn’t actually contribute in build up.

What might concern him, though, is that Hull aren’t going to be finishing high up even if they do earn safety and, with Bowen’s stats in mind, other sides are surely going to be swirling.

Bowen would surely score more goals for a play-off challenging side or in the Premier League and, unless Adkins can convince the forward the Tigers will be back challenging in 2018/19, he could be on his way.
