Hull City boss Grant McCann praised QPR midfielder Eberechi Eze after the 21-year-old scored twice against the Tigers yesterday.

The Hoops have gone into the Championship Play-Offs after beating Hull 3-2 at the KCOM Stadium yesterday.

Eze earned and dispatched two second-half penalties in front of the travelling supporters to give his side a well deserved three points.

McCann spoke to the Tigers’ official club website after the match: “Their number ten, Ebe Eze, was excellent for them but I’m disappointed because for one goal we had three players chasing him and we never laid a glove on him, and then for another we let him dance in between three or four of us without anyone making a tackle and that has disappointed me.”

He also expressed his disappointment after a poor performance: “We were disappointing in the second half and we didn’t keep the ball well enough, although you could say that for the whole game really.”

Jarrod (Bowen) has scored a good goal to put us in front and we maybe could have been 2-0 up, but then we let them get that equaliser just before half time and it was a good finish from their boy (Ryan Manning). We were turning possession over too easily which meant that we didn’t really give ourselves a chance

He added: “As for the penalties – sometimes you get them and sometimes you don’t. What I will say is the way the lad took the first penalty – you’re not allowed to stop on your approach to the ball. The lad stopped and George Long was already on the floor, so there maybe should have been a retake.”
