REPORT: Sky Blues 3-0 Hull City

City finish their league campaign in style...

12 April 2019

The Sky Blues ended their Professional Development League campaign in style, with a dominant victory over Hull City.

Goals from David Bremang, Jack Burroughs and Sam McCallum ensured a comfortable victory, as City lie in second place, as they await Crystal Palace to play their remaining fixtures.

The first shot of the game fell to the visitors in the 12th minute and it was Billy Chadwick who found space opening up outside of the box, but his shot from distance was wayward and went wide of the post.

City looked to create their first opening and some good work between David Bremang and Sam McCallum saw the striker release Jack Burroughs, but his shot was deflected behind for a corner.

From the resulting set-piece, the ball was cleared only as far as McCallum and his cross found Burroughs at the back post, but his effort hit the side netting.

Owen Evans was the first Hull man to test Liam O’Brien, but his effort lacked any real conviction and was comfortable for the ‘keeper.

Straight up the other end, Bremang was released, but as he chased down the ball his effort was deflected behind.

Just under 30 minutes on the clock and City almost found the opener after Jonny Ngandu found the ball in space outside the box, but his shot was deflected past the post.

As the first half wore on the Sky Blues continued to pile on the pressure and almost forced Hull captain Lewis Ritson into putting the ball into his own net, but Callum Burton stopped it on the line.

Five minutes before the break and some good work down the left from Dexter Walters saw him beat his man and then pick out Ngandu in space in the middle, but his shot was blocked by James Weir.

Ngandu continued to cause the Hull defence problems and his cross from the left went inches over the bar after deflecting off Josh Thacker.

City’s pressure was to be rewarded in the 41st minute when some superb work from Walters some him beat one, then two and then as he went past the third he was brought down.

Bremang stepped up to take the spot-kick and he made no mistake firing the ball past Callum Burton and into the back of the net.

After the break and Dexter continued to cause problems for the Hull City defence and this time he had a shot from distance, but his effort was deflected onto the top of the bar.

However, a few minutes later the lead would be doubled and it was Jack Burroughs who’s turn and shot from inside the box flew into the back of the net.

The midfielder almost had a second a few minutes later, but this time from a tight angle he could only find the side netting.

City continued to dominate and could have had a third when Bremang got a shot away from inside the box, but Burton saved.

The Sky Blues grabbed their third after 64 minutes and it was Sam McCallum who was on the end of a Dexter Walters cross and he left the ‘keeper with no chance.

74 minutes gone and Trialist almost added a fourth when he raced through on goal, but he was denied by a fine save from Callum Burton.

With seconds left on the clock, City and Declan Drysdale were denied a fourth when a superb save from Burton kept the defender out.

The Sky Blues would see out the remainder of the game comfortably, as they secured victory against the Tigers.
