LOCAL SPORT ROUND UP WITH CHARLIE MULLAN

 

 

If you're not at Wembley for the FA Trophy Final this Sunday, why not? Hull City fans have no excuses because their team have no game due to the international break. It is fair to say that North Ferriby will be empty as the residents of the quiet village travel to the capital to cheer Billy Heath's side on to victory in the biggest game in the club's 81 year history against Wrexham. Ferriby carry the weight of the nation on their shoulders in a case of England versus Wales. The Villagers have proved to be a hard team to beat this season having only lost 10 of their 47 games played and one of thoser was a second string XI that lost 2-0 to Reckitts in the East Riding FA senior Cup. It's been a great story thus far and the ending is waiting to be written. History is ready to be written

 

Both rugby league sides found out this week where their road to Wembley begins and both are on their travels. Hull FC travel to Sheffield in the fifth round while Rovers face a tricky trip to Bradford, relegated at the end of last season.

 

In the league, Hull go to Castleford looking for back-to-back wins for the first time this season. Confidence will be high after a 33-22 win over Catalans Dragons at the KC Stadium last riday night. It's a return to the wonderfully named Mend-A-Hose Jungle for Marc Sneyd, who joined FC in a £100,000 move.

 

As for Rovers, they have the unenviable task of stopping league leaders St Helens from making it seven league wins from seven this season. Rovers' record against teams that have gone into KR games as league leaders is not great with just four wins from twelve. Three of those have bee against Saints who haven't won at Rovers since 2007.

 

Both Hull's rugby union sides can do each other a favour this weekend. Hull Ionians can edge closer to the National Two North title when they take on Luctonians at Brantingham Park while Hull RUFC travel to Ampthill. Ampthill are Ionians' nearest rivals and a Hull win coupled with an Ionians victory would take the I's a big step closer to automatic promotion to National League One. Luctonians are just two points and one place above Hull RUFC. With just four matches left to play, this could be a massive weekend for both Ionians and Hull.

 

Hull Stingrays face a Braehead double header this weekend in the first round of the Elite League play-offs. Omar Pacha's side finished the regular season seventh and face a Braehead side they have already beaten home and away this season. The first leg of this weekend's play-off is in Scotland on Saturday with the second leg at Hull Ice Arena on Sunday night.

LOCAL SPORT ROUND UP WITH CHARLIE MULLAN

 

 

CHAMPIONS-ELECT Chelsea come to the KC this weekend as Hull City look to add to Jose Mourinho’s recent blues. After being knocked out of the Champions League by Paris St Germain, Chelseas dropped points against Southampton last weekend and will be hoping to get back to winning ways against the Tigers. Steve Bruce has been dealt a major blow with the news that the club’s all-time leading Premier League scorer Nikica Jelavic is out again with a knee injury.

 

North Ferriby United play their final league game before making their way to Wembley next weekend for the FA Trophy final. Billy Heath’s side travel to Brackley who are fifth from bottom in the Conference North. It’s the last chance for the players to impress Heath and earn a coveted place in his squad for the biggest game in the club’s history. Ferriby go into the game having won their last three matches and should extend that run to four.

 

Hull FC hope to lift themselves off the bottom of Super League with a home win against Catalans Dragons. Lee Radford’s side have lost their last four since beating Huddersfield 19-0 in their season opener. The Dragons has defensive problems having leaked 50 points to Hull KR last weekend and 40 points at home to Salford the week before. The Dragons have stayed in Manchester this week after conceding 46 unanswered points to Chris Chester’s Rovers.

 

Rovers will be looking for their third win in four games when they travel to Widnes this weekend. Only Leeds Have scored more points than Rovers’ potent attack that have scored 26 tries in their first five fixtures. Suddenly, the doom and gloom of losing their opening two matches has gone. Last weekend’s 50-20 win over Catalans lifted them to eighth and the hard work starts now to stay there.

 

The Hull Stingrays have made the play-offs with two matches to spare. Wednesday night’s defeat to Coventry failed to produce a goal in 60 minutes of action by either side. Omar Pacha’s side end their regular season with trips to Breahead and Coventry before embarking on the post-season the following weekend.

 

Hull Ionians and Hull RUFC have no games and will no doubt be glued to their TVs to watch the end of the Six Nations unfold with Wales, Ireland and England all in with a chance of winning the title.

LOCAL SPORT ROUND UP WITH CHARLIE MULLAN

 

 

Eddie Hearn and his Matchroom Boxing roll into town again on Saturday for another big night of boxing at the Ice Arena. And no, try as hard as Steve Bruce did to get himself on the bill, he and Gus Poyet will have to watch the action on TV, if they haven’t got their tickets yet. Top of the bill is Tommy Coyle and his fight with Martin Gethin. It won’t be easy for Coyle with a blockbusting home fight with Olympic champion Luke Campbell at the KC Stadium in a couple of months time. Luke Campbell’s fight against Levis Morales should be more straightforward. It should be a great night for other local boxers Tom Knight, Charlie Payton and Connor Seymour. Bruce has the weekend off to cool down after his confrontation with Poyet. I may be alone in my thinking but shouldn’t Bruce be reprimanded for manhandling an official, regardless of what was said? If a player had done that, wouldn’t they have a case to answer?

 

Wembley bound North Ferriby United have a lot of football to play as a result of their FA Trophy cup-run. After a 1-1 draw at Oxford City on Wednesday night, the Villagers take on Lowestoft at the Eon Visual Media Stadium, scene of their dramatic penalty shoot-out win over Bath City last Saturday. With Wembley places up for grabs, manager Billy Heath won’t have to motivate his players too much as he chases a play-off place at the end of the season. Ferriby are 12 points adrift of fifth placed Guiseley and with three and four games in hand on the others in the top five, Ferriby’s dream of reaching the play-offs is still a possibility. However, they cannot afford any more slip ups. Ferriby would be higher up the table if they had managed to turn a couple of their 12 draws into wins.

 

In rugby union, Hull Ionians welcome third placed Chester a week after claiming top spot in National Two North. A 24-19 win at Stockport last weekend saw them climb over nearest rivals Ampthill who are at home to Huddersfield this weekend. Last week’s win may not have been as emphatic as many would have expected given Stockport’s place at the bottom of the table. But a bonus point win was all they needed and Alex Crockett’s side got the job done. There are six rounds of fixtures left to play and there promises to be more twists and turns to come in the chase for the title and automatic promotion to National League One.

 

Hull RUFC’s fight to avoid relegation takes them to Broadstreet, who are four places above them in the table. Both sides had last weekend off and will hope having a fortnight to prepare for this game will help. Broadstreet look to be safe, but defeat will drag them back into the relegation mix. Hull’s 30-18 win over Caldy in their last outing was much needed given Luctonians and Birmingham/Solihull also won to keep the relegation battle as close as it has been all season.

 

Having lost 4-3 at Nottingham on Wednesday, the Hull Stingrays head to Scotland for a double header against Fife and Dundee. You have to feel sorry for the Stingrays who are being asked to play a ridiculous number of games in a short space of time. They played three matches in three nights last weekend and now they have three more games in five nights. Considering the battering they take, those boys deserve a well-earned rest.

LOCAL SPORT ROUND UP WITH CHARLIE MULLAN

 

 

Fantastic update as always from Charlie on what's happening on our local sports scene. Catch up with the latest news right here;

 

 

The Eon Visual Media Stadium is the place to be this weekend as North Ferriby play Bath City in their FA Trophy semi-final second leg. The tie is delicately balanced at 2-2 after Bath fought back from 2-0 down to score twice in the final half hour. Billy Heath’s side were about to take their first step onto Wembley Way only for Bath to cancel out Ferriby’s two-goal advantage. The away goals rule doesn’t apply because this is an FA competition so the tie will go to extra-time and penalties if the scores are level after 90 minutes. As Billy Heath said after the first leg, Ferriby never do things the easy way but hopefully the Villagers get the job done without any hiccups. Ferriby warmed up for the tie with a 2-0 defeat to Hednesford on Tuesday night when Heath rested a number of his starting XI with Saturday in mind. Ferriby chairman Les Hare hopes the tie attracts Hull City fans unable to get to Stoke for their Premier League meeting. For once, Ferriby have a chance to step out of Hull City's shadow with Wembley beckoning.

 

Steve Bruce’s side, with seven points from a possible nine safely tucked away in their back pocket, go into their game at Stoke full of confidence. The partnership of Dame N’Doye and City's all-time Premier League goalscorer Nikica Jelavic is certainly working wonders with four goals between them in their last two matches. With favourable matches coming up against Sunderland and Leicester, City can take massive strides towards survival. A rare 90th minute goal for instead of against secured the three points against 10-man QPR. What was Joey Barton thinking? Incidentally, N'Doye's goal was the fourth goal City had scored compared to the 17 conceded in the 90th minute. It's just as bad for City in the 45th minute with two goals scored and 10 conceded.

 

Super League returns this weekend with Hull FC first in action on  Saturday evening at pointless Salford. Gareth Hock has left the Red Devils and Kevin Locke is rumoured to be tempted by the money in union. To say Marwan Koukash's club is in disarray is an understatement. Hull's defence, that has conceded a league best seven points from two games, should withstand anything thrown at them. Rovers' search for their first point of the season sees them face Wigan at the KC Lightstream Stadium. The last time the two sides met there, Rovers led 14-4 with eight minutes remaining, but Josh Charnley's unconverted try after the hooter rescued the Warriors. A similar result on Sunday would be a good starting point for KR.

 

In union, Hull Ionians take on basement side Stockport, who have the unwanted mantle of National 2 North whipping boys. Alex Crockett's side should win and win big in Stockport to regain top spot in the league. They go into the game two points behind Ampthill with the Stockport game in hand. With just six games to play after Saturday, Ionians need to stay top to secure automatic promotion back to National League One at the first attempt.

 

Spare a thought for Hull Stingrays. They have to play three games in three days which in any sport would be challenging. But when it's as brutal as ice hockey, then credit must be given to Omar Pacha's players. A trip to Belfast on Friday night is followed by a home double-header against Sheffield and Dundee. The Stingrays have five games to catch-up on those above them if they are to take sixth spot from Fife.

LOCAL SPORT ROUND UP WITH CHARLIE MULLAN

 

 

Great to have some local sports news from Charlie - have a read and catch up with the latest results and fixtures in our area;

 

 

While Hull City take on QPR in a rather important relegation clash at the KC Stadium, North Ferriby United travel to Bath City for an equally important game - the first leg of their FA Trophy semi-final. A Wembley final is oh so close and the Villagers go to the west country with a 10 game unbeaten run to protect. Four of those matches have been draws and another draw at Twerton Park wouldn’t be a disaster for Billy Heath’s side. Heath gave his players Tuesday night off to be fresh for the biggest game of their season as they look to return to Wembley for the second time in their history. They reached the FA Vase final in 1997 but were beaten 3-0 by Whitby Town. Nathan Jarman got 20 minutes under his belt in the 0-0 draw against Tamworth on Saturday and with Curtis Bateson cup-tied, Jarman may have a key role to play. Bath City warmed up for the first leg with a 7-4 home win against Farnborough, the side Ferriby beat in the third round of the Trophy.

 
Hull Ionians’ push for automatic promotion continues on Saturday when they travel to Leicester Lions. Alex Crockett’s side remain two points behind league leaders Ampthill, but Ionians’ have a game in hand against basement strugglers Stockport to regain top position. Only one side goes up to National League One automatically with the second placed team playing their counterparts from National 2 South for promotion. Ionians’ opponents Leicester will still be smarting from their 27-0 hammering inflicted on them by Hull RUFC. It was a win that took Gary Pearce’s side out of the bottom three. The goal now is to stay there and ensure they keep their position in the league. Otley travel to the Stade de Chants on Saturday having held Caldy to a 26-26 last weekend. Pearce has managed to sign former Super League star Jamie Foster and his goalkicking will be important between now and the end of the season.

 

Hull Stingrays travel to Scotland for a double header this weekend with a re-match against Fife on Saturday and struggling Edinburgh on Sunday. Fife were beaten 5-4 by Omar Pacha’s side on Sunday night in a game that boiled over a couple of times. That bad blood will surely return to the ice this weekend. Stingrays netminder David Brown has received praise for his performances lately and before the Fife game he had conceded just four goals from 97 shots fired at him.
 
Hull golfer Richard Finch hopes he can rediscover the form that saw him win two European Tour titles in 2008. This week he travels to India looking to make his third cut of the season. The 37-year-old has found scoring difficult this season with only one score in the 60s from 18 rounds. Last week he struggled in the Thailand Classic finishing 126th after successive rounds of 74 left him five shots behind the cut.
 
Super League takes a break this weekend for the World Club Series where the best of Super League take three teams from the NRL. The comes at a good time for Hull KR and gives them a fortnight to shore up their leaky defence that has conceded 84 points in their first two games of the season but their attack is ranked fourth. While Rovers have the worst defensive record, Hull FC have the best having conceded just seven points from their matches against Warrington and Huddersfield but are ranked fourth from bottom in terms of scoring.

WILL 36 POINTS KEEP HULL CITY IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE?

END OF SEASON PREVIEW BY OLLIE HARSLEY

 

 

We asked Ollie Harsley what he thinks to our chances of staying up. Here is what he had to say;

 

 

After the victory against Villa on Tuesday night, Hull City sit in 15th position in the Premier League with 23 points. However the gap between 15th and 18th place is very small regarding the amount of points. To achieve 36 points by the end of this season City will have to win 4 games and have 1 draw in the Premier League. These next 4 games in Hull City's season certainly all look winnable in my opinion. This is because Hull will face QPR, Stoke, Sunderland and Leicester.

 

I fully expect City to beat QPR as it is a home game but for the Stoke away game I'd be happy with a point from the Britannia Stadium. The Sunderland game looks like one City could win as we have a faultless record against the Black Cats over the last two years. The Leicester game is at the King Power Stadium but you never know - I'd love to think that Hull City will be the team that give Nigel Pearson the sack by beating his Leicester side!

 

As we get into late March/early April the fixtures start to become difficult. Hull face Chelsea at the KC Stadium on 22 March but I can only foresee a Chelsea win - unfortunately. Then as the season ticks into April, Hull City have back to back away games at Swansea and Southampton. I can see City maybe getting a point at least from the Swansea game but I fully expect them to be beaten by Southampton at St Mary's. Hull then face Liverpool at the KC Stadium on 18 April. This is a game where I can see City getting a result as Liverpool have had a torrid season by their standards so far. To end the month of April, Hull City travel to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace in a game where a win is possible in my opinion but I wouldn't be too unhappy with only getting a point.

 

The alarm bells start ringing as we enter the month of May. This is because there are three very tough games out of four in this month which say to me that we won't collect points in any of them. These tough games are against Arsenal at the KC Stadium, Spurs at White Hart Lane and the final game of the season is at home against Manchester United. I cannot see Hull collecting any points from any of these games but the other game in this month is a must win game in my opinion. This game is against Burnley at the KC Stadium and we need to be taking points from our relegation rivals.

 

In my eyes, Hull City have to ensure they are safe before they reach April/May as the run-in looks extremely difficult and as they lose games I'm sure all the teams around them will be winning games. In answer to the question 'Will 36 points keep Hull City in the Premier League?', I believe 36 points can but it will be extremely tight and I can see it all boiling down to the last game of the season.

CITY v NEWCASTLE

 

MATCH REPORT BY SIMON BROMWICH

SLOPPY CITY SLUMP TO ANOTHER DEFEAT

 

HULL CITY 0-3 NEWCASTLE UNITED
(Cabella 40’, Ameobi 50’, Gouffran 78’)

 

Hull City:

 

McGregor A few decent saves throughout the afternoon. Could do very little with the first and last goals, however to concede three for the second game in a row is a concern. (6)

 

Elmohamady A danger going forward, caused Ameobi problems in the early exchanges. A couple of his crosses probably should have been capitalised on. A very cynical attempt to gain a goal, probably should have resulted in a red card. (6)

 

Dawson* Numerous challenges and blocks help keep the score to a minimum. But it cannot be forgotten he had probably one of the best chances in the game. (7)

 

Davies Looked a little uncomfortable and lacked in confidence. Still better than the majority, even with a hamstring injury towards the end. (6)

 

Robertson Added a spark and some pace which caused problems until he was replaced. A poor pass gave Newcastle the first goal, not the first time this season has the young Scot done that. (6)

 

Meyler Not a winger. He may put a lot of effort in however he was lost and it was for all to see. His desire to win the ball and battle may find him revert to central midfield in future. (5)

 

Huddlestone A star passer who can open a defence gave the ball away on numerous occasions more notably a goal came from one of the misplaced passes. (5)

 

Livermore Flurries of desire and effort, however his sauntering back on a couple of occasions did not go unnoticed. When an opportunity arose to move forward with the ball when 2-0 down he chose to turn and pass to the defence. (4)

 

Ramirez Assisted the Newcastle second goal. Looked more committed to challenging for the ball than what is normally shown by the Uruguayan. Some good touches showed the magic to unlock a defence but was unable to. (6)

 

Jelavic His hard work and endeavour caused a few issues for the Newcastle defence. Yet never got the service he needed and when the chance came he could not adjust in time. (6)

 

Hernandez Looked a fraction of the player which tore open Everton’s defence, this may be due to early return from injury. Link up with fellow Uruguayan Ramirez early on offered hope but petered out as the game progressed. (5)

 

Subs

 

Aluko (Meyler 56’) Some energy and effort, dropped too deep to effect the final third. (5)

 

Ince (Hernandez 67’) Had little impact. Never showed the pace and skill to beat a player which he has showed can open defences. (5)

A very mediocre Newcastle were made to look extremely good by a terrible performance by Hull City. The game (as always against Newcastle) provided a bit of drama. The Elmohamady hand ball incident in particular. Dowd may have been booed off at half time but the concourse was packed to see why the goal wasn’t to stand. Dowd had made the right decision much to mine and others dismay. A moment of madness meant the game slipped out of reach in the second half. What was to make it worse was Elmohamady’s appealing against the decision when it was blatantly obvious that he had, Maradona style, punched the ball home.

 

During the course of the last 15 games, City have failed to score in 11 - a great concern that may hinder any transfer movement over the course of the next 24 hours. Lennon was supposedly in Hull on Saturday but may hold out for a better deal, unsurprising after such a poor display.

 

The start from City was one of great promise, after a poor second half performance lead to a 3-0 defeat in London last time around. It was to be a similar story today with squandered chances which were begging to be put in the net. A Davies header from an Elmohamady cross after 18 minutes was well saved and lead to a scrabble only for Newcastle to gain a free kick. Good link up play with a quick tempo opened up a couple of potential opportunities. However it was not to last, a poor choice of pass by Robertson allowed Cabella to score a wonderful first goal for the Magpies.

 

Ramirez’ free-kick on the stroke of half time was a delivery almost on a par from earlier in the game, which saw Dawson go close at the far post. Instead of heading the ball, Elmohamady handled it. Half time came and went and once again a City player forgot the colour of the shirt he was playing in and gave the ball to Ameobi whose strike from 30 yards nestled in the corner.

 

From this point onward Newcastle controlled the possession not allowing Hull any chance to regain a foothold. This lead to a couple of defensive lapses and allowed a couple of chances to score arise. Hull City are still a team which mistakes can be made against and you will not be punished. A rush of blood to the head caused Coloccini to scuff a clearance across goal, only a Newcastle player was there to follow up his captain’s mistake. When the ball did fall to a City player it ricocheted away much to the disbelief of the home support. Top scorer Jelavic was unable to turn in a low hard cross after some good build up play down the left by Robertson and Ramirez. The cross proving too powerful to control and a clearance like finish meant Krul could keep his clean sheet.

 

As the half wore on the effort and confidence drained from many City players. It was epitomised by Jake Livermore who allowed Gouffran to run by him with the ball in the lead up to the third goal. The substitute ran through the defence like a hot knife through butter and with a deflected shot looped the ball beyond the helpless McGregor. The victory sealed.
A fairly good and lively start was met by a very poor and deeply concerning second half display. Anything like the same display as in the second half against Manchester City at the Etihad next week will potentially see a double figure goal-fest.
