Hull City newbie explains how team must approach Leeds United clash

Leeds United will look to continue their promotion push this week.

Leeds United take on Hull City in the Championship this afternoon as they look to continue their fight for Premier League promotion.

Hull, on the other hand, are looking over their shoulders at a potential relegation battle after a recent poor run of form.

One player Hull brought in to the club to try and prevent the slide was Norwegian attacker Martin Samuelsen. 

Unfortunately, he has barely played since the mid-January arrival from West Ham United because of injury problems.

But the 22-year-old returned to action in midweek and spoke to the club’s official website about the upcoming clash with Leeds United this week. 

“We need to be brave. When things are going against you, that’s when you need to show your character and resolve. That is what we will look to do in the last eleven games of the season, starting against Leeds tomorrow.”


TBR’s View

Undoubtedly, Leeds will be a tough fixture for Hull. The last time the two teams faced the Tigers were in far better form, but were swept aside in a comfortable 2-0 win at Elland Road. 

To beat Leeds, there is undoubtedly a level of bravery that needs to be adopted. Wigan Athletic, for example, recently pulled off such an achievement. 

But Hull have not won a league game since New Year’s Day, picking up just four points from their last possible 27. 

Bravery will undoubtedly be needed, but Leeds United fans will be confident of getting the best of the Tigers at the KCOM Stadium.
