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.
