Hull City to push on for more Cup success

By Chloe Horswill

Marco Silva will be hoping that his team will be able to mirror their brilliant home form when they face Fulham in the FA Cup.

Hull City’s 2-1 victory over Manchester United took their winning streak at home to three matches, but the victory wasn’t enough to take them to Wembley for the EFL Cup final.

Despite their good results at home though, they haven’t managed an away win in any competition since October when they beat Bristol City in the EFL Cup.

Talking to Sky Sports after the Manchester tie, Silva said: “When I arrived we hadn’t won a game in the last two months and we need to continue to keep our organisation at all times and not suffer goals like we did tonight.”

Fulham have also been struggling for results in recent games, but looked good in the last FA Cup round when they came from behind to beat Cardiff 2-1.

The game will mark ex-Hull striker Sone Aluko facing his old club for the first time and he believes that even though Hull are struggling in the Premier League, it doesn’t mean they won’t be a tough test for his new side.

He said: “The good thing for us is it is at home as we wanted a home game and we are very confident at Craven Cottage whoever we play against.”

Fulham have no fresh injury worries going into the game, and should have defender Michael Madl in the squad still despite his early exit in the previous game due to a facial injury.

Hull have a few notable long-term absentees but Curtis Davies could be back after sitting out against United due to a hamstring problem. Robert Snodgrass is still out of the squad as he seeks a transfer away from the club.
