Mariners Back In Trophy Action

17 November 2020

Listen to Ollie’s pre-match press conference ahead of Tuesday’s Papa John's Trophy tie at Hull City. 

The Town boss is relishing coming up against Grant McCann’s side. 

Ollie said: “We’ve got a really good game on our hands against Hull. 

“It’s a brilliant pitch, a fantastic surface to play on. 

“They played on Saturday and we didn’t - so we should be ready. 

“I am looking forward to a performance. I want a performance for as many minutes as we have got to play. 

“Hull are a good side. I don’t know if they will pick the same team, but their manager has made some comments saying he wants to win it – not just this game but the whole thing. 

“It will be a good test for us and one that I am really looking forward to.”

He continued: “The attitude in training has been absolutely fantastic - it always has been.

“It’s now about staying in the game and knowing what they need to do themselves – if they come under the cosh at any time, how to withstand that. 

“That is something we need to work on and we need people to step up to the plate and take more responsibility - I think we are leaving it to one or two rather than all of us. 

“It is something you have to work on and get somehow, but when we are such a new group it is very difficult. 

“There have been signs that it has been coming - but then we do something absolutely crazy at the wrong time that costs us the whole result. 

“Anyone who has watched us will know we have been quite a good team – but there is no point in being quite a good team if we lose.” 

And the Town boss has received an injury boost ahead of the short trip across the Humber. Owura Edwards, Max Wright and Sean Scannell are all in contention for the game. 

Midfielder Elliott Hewitt is also back in the frame, but Luke Hendrie misses out with a groin problem.
