Hull City boss Grant McCann admitted he was relieved to leave Charlton Athletic with a point last night.
The Tigers’ needed a 90+6 minute equaliser from 18-year-old striker Keane Lewis-Potter to salvage a draw against a battling Addicks side, though the goal may be credited as an own goal by Dillon Phillips.
Hull were below-par and fell behind at half-time to a Darren Pratley header. The visitors levelled through Jarrod Bowen, only for Charlton to go up the other end and regain their lead through Naby Sarr.
McCann admitted he was satisfied with the point and said, as per the Tigers’ official club website: “We were poor first half, there’s no point hiding the fact. We couldn’t pass the ball to an amber player. Me and Cliff (Byrne) were stood on the sidelines and we didn’t know what to say to each other. I think that’s the first time that’s happened in the year and a half we’ve been together.”
“The second half we controlled it. It was a good response. To get the early goal was pleasing but to concede so quickly after was shocking from us really. We let Naby Sarr run the whole length of the pitch without anyone tracking him.”
He added: “But what this group has got is a real steel to keep going. I’m delighted, relieved to come away with a point. We got out of jail a little bit.”
