Rovers to wear Coppinger's gold kit on Saturday

18 February 2021

The man in charge  

Grant McCann left Rovers to join Hull in the summer of 2019. He enjoyed success in his only season at the Keepmoat Stadium, guiding the club to the Sky Bet League One play-off semi-final, before taking over as head coach at the KCOM Stadium soon after. After a positive start to last season, McCann’s side were relegated from the Championship, with the aim this time around for an immediate return to the second tier. He has now taken charge of 90 Hull games, winning 34, drawing 19 and losing 37, giving him an overall win percentage of 37.8%.

Win a one-off signed kit cad with the scrambler

Ones to watch 

George Honeyman 

The 26-year-old midfielder began his career at Sunderland and went on to play more than 80 times for the club after coming through the system at the Stadium of Light. Honeyman was a key player for the Black Cats before making the move to Hull in the summer of 2019. 

He played 44 times in his debut season at the club, before backing that up with another 32 appearances so far in this campaign. He has chipped in with three league goals so far, with the most recent coming in the victory at Portsmouth last month.

 

Mallik Wilks 

Wilks is well known to Rovers fans after his exploits while on loan with the club in the 2018/19 season. Having arrived on loan from Leeds United, the winger scored 16 goals in 55 appearances and became a real fans favourite as the club secured a play-off place. He joined Barnsley on a permanent deal at the end of that campaign, but struggled to make an impact at Oakwell and joined the Tigers on loan in January 2020 in a move which saw him re-united with Grant McCann. He made the move permanent last summer and is one of the league’s leading marksmen with 12 goals. 

 

Keane Lewis-Potter 

A product of the Hull academy, Lewis-Potter made his debut for the club in an Emirates FA Cup tie against Millwall in January 2019. Last season was something of a breakthrough one for the striker, who featured 22 times under Grant McCann, scoring twice in the Sky Bet Championship.  

The drop down in level has helped the 19-year-old to find his feat further in the EFL, and he has already scored eight goals in all competitions so far this season. He recently signed a new contract with the club until the summer of 2023.

Last time out 

Hull came out on top when the two sides last met back in December at the KCOM. Josh Magennis had given the home side the lead at half-time, before Tyreece John-Jules looked to have secured Rovers a point late on. That was until Tom Eaves popped up to secure all three points for the Tigers.

Match Reports

REPORT | Rovers 3 Hull City 3

20 February 2021

James Coppinger wins a point for Rovers against promotion rivals Hull City in a six goal thriller.

The headline before the game was the return of captain Tom Anderson to the starting XI after he missed the last game two games after picking up a concussion against Fleetwood. He replaced Andy Butler who dropped the bench. Returning to the side also was Matt Smith, Madger Gomes and Josh Sims with Scott Robertson, John Bostock and Elliot Simeos vacating the starting XI.  

Rovers – who were playing in their golden charity kit, designed by James Coppinger – got off to a positive start finding a lot of joy down Hull’s left-hand side. But the visitors worked well to block most of the crosses Rovers attempted.  

Hull’s biggest chances came through free kicks – which they ultimately would take the lead through. Their first free kick was dealt with amicably by Joe Wright. But on second attempt, Mallik Wilks headed past Ellery Balcombe.   

In response to going behind a flurry of chances would come Rovers’ way, with Matt Ingram spilling a shot from Sims before Omar Bogle had a shot blocked from the edge of the box.  

However, on the counter Hull and Wilks got their second of the game as he scored from close-range.  

Another mistake from Ingram gifted Rovers a corner which ended with Anderson’s header being cleared by Greaves. On second attempt Josh Magennis had to clear off the line from a Bogle shot.  

Eventually Rovers broke through with a long distance shot from Reece James beating Matt Ingram.  

The visitors increased the tempo with two attempts cleared by Anderson in sensational fashion but unfortunately Moore’s side would go 3-1 down after Greaves headed past Balcombe.  

A half-time change from Moore saw Gomes withdrawn with Bostock replacing the Spaniard.  

Rovers did come out determined, containing the Tigers well and putting together some challenging attacks.  

On the hour mark Rovers had two consecutive strong arguments for a penalty turned down by referee Charles Breakspear after two handballs from the Hull City defence.  

Wilks gave away a penalty after pushing Sims over on the 67th minute. Bogle sent Ingram the wrong way to open his account for the club. After the penalty had been taken the oppositions manager Grant McCann was shown a yellow card.  

The contest continued to heat up as Rovers increased their presence in the game.  

A Jason Lokilo corner drew a third hand ball from a Hull City defender but played carried on and the visitors eventually cleared.  

On the 86th minute James Coppinger and Scott Robertson came on for Matt Smith and Jon Taylor.  

Rovers got thier deserved equaliser from Mr Doncaster Rovers himself -  James Coppinger. He burried a free kick from 25 yards into the top left corner.
