Hull City role in pursuit of season’s end becomes clearer



Hull City have been described as the most vocal Championship club pushing for the season to be curtailed, with Grant McCann’s side at serious risk of relegation.  

There’s been no football played in the UK since the first weekend of March, with public health taking ultimate importance up and down the country.

For Hull, the postponement came at a time when McCann’s side were really struggling in the Championship, January exits had led to a drop in form, with the Tigers hovering just outside the relegation zone and without a win in 11 fixtures.

The Athletic has reported that during EFL meetings, Hull have been the Championship side most vocal about curtailing the season. With the 2019/20 campaign cut short, their Championship status would be secure for the new season.

On the flip side, Leeds United and West Brom are two sides keen to resume, whilst those below Hull in the table – Charlton Athletic, Luton Town and Barnsley – will be pushing for a resume date to look to avoid a drop back into the third-tier.

The Verdict

Every side has a different motive when it comes to what happens with the rest of the Championship season, with Hull in a particularly tough situation.

They are looking to cover their own backs and avoid the potential relegation, as their form was woeful pre-postponement and they looked a good bet for the drop.

However, there appears a strong chance they will be out voted when it comes to the resume of the season, which means McCann and his players need to have full focus if things do start up again.
