Football League World’s Hull City fan pundit George Millward has heaped praise on his side following their weekend win against Reading in the Championship.
The Tigers beat the Royals 2-1 at the KCOM to pick-up their first win of the season and it was the personality of his side that impressed Millward more than anything else.
“We showed great fight and character to see the game out,” the regular punter told Football League World.
“The first-half we dominated but in the second-half Reading were very unlucky not to get a point out of the game.
“George Long impressed, keeping us from conceding an equaliser late on. (Jackson) Irvine was very impressive, scoring a beautiful header and he controlled the midfield very well.
“It is showing that we are moving in the right direction with Grant McCann, as under Adkins we would usually end-up drawing that game.
“McCann is a very attacking manager, which is what I like, sitting back and holding onto a lead I hate as the pressure will eventually pay-off.”
It followed the club’s opening day defeat to Swansea City at the Liberty as the club and players continue to adapt to life without Nigel Adkins.
A midweek win against Tranmere Rovers made it back-to-back wins and they will be looking to make it three when they travel to Brentford this weekend.
And our regular punter knows exactly what he wants from his side.
“For Saturday against Brentford I don’t want anything changing,” Millward said.
“Why change what’s not broken?
“The togetherness is there, but Brentford are a very good team, after spending big money. But, I can see us scraping a 1-1 draw.”
