Hull City got their first win of the season last night with a 3-2 away victory over Rotherham United. Here are five things we learned from the game-
Togetherness in the squad- Nigel Adkins has emphasised the fact that the City squad have a togetherness and this was evident last night. Rotherham are a very physical side who threw the kitchen sink at City in the last 15 minutes but Adkins’ young side held on well for a deserved three points.
Evandro is the GOAT- Well not quite, but the tricky Brazilian is a class act and a joy to watch. His excellent first touch and creativity makes things happen for City. He really is one of the most underrated players in the Championship and is a hidden gem. If he remains fit, Evandro will be huge for the Tigers this season.
Jackson Irvine looks sharp- The Australian international bagged two goals and looked brilliant. He showed the type of form that he had at Burton Albion in the 2016/17 season where he chipped in with 10 league goals. He was getting into goal scoring positions from left midfield and caused Rotherham real problems.
Impressive away following- Amid all the off-field problems at the club regarding the asset stripping owners, the Tigers’ faithful still turned up in their numbers to back the team. Nigel Adkins will be hoping for the same again away at Stoke City on Saturday.
Youngsters have bright futures ahead of them- Daniel Batty impressed in midfield again and there was a league debut for Robbie McKenzie, who came on in the second-half and slotted well in at right-back.
