We've met before: Hull City

Fleetwood Town are set to travel to the KCOM Stadium on Saturday afternoon to face Hull City in another Sky Bet League One clash.

The Cod Army have faced The Tigers three times in competitive fixtures already this season, with Fleetwood winning the one league fixture and Hull winning the two cup ties.

MEMORABLE FIXTURE

One match that lives in the memory is one from October 2020 when Fleetwood Town stunned Hull, beating them 4-1 at Highbury Stadium.

Harvey Saunders opened up the scoring on a sunny afternoon on the Fylde Coast after dribbling down the right and slotting past Matt Ingram, before George Honeyman made the game level once again before the half.

After the restart, Saunders latched onto a loose pass from the Hull defence and burst towards the goal. Rather than going himself, he played the ball across the box to Camps who slotted home. Soon after, Town doubled their lead as Ched Evans drilled a low cross into the Hull area and Saunders was there to tap the ball in to score his second of the game.

Sam Stubbs added to the scoreline late on as he headed a corner into the ground, just in front of Ingram and the bounce saw it go past the Hull number 13.

LAST TIME AT THE KCOM STADIUM

Town’s last trip to the home of The Tigers was back in January 2021, when Fleetwood lost out in the dying seconds to a Lewie Coyle wonder strike, losing the Emirates FA Cup tie 3-2 on the day.

Wes Burns created the opener as he carried the ball down the right flank at the Tigers’ defence, where he pulled the ball back to Paddy Madden who took a touch and struck the ball into the back of the net with help from the post. Burns was on hand to double Fleetwood’s lead in the second half as he saw his effort fly through a crowd, past Ingram.

Hull then got the goal they had been pushing for as Mallik Wilks headed in Honeyman’s corner into the back of the net to half the deficit. The momentum was with the hosts as they equalised only moments later through Keane Lewis-Potter as another corner was swung in from Honeyman and the forward was the fastest to react to poke the ball into the back of the net.

The last chance of the game decided it as former-Fleetwood full-back Lewie Coyle tried his luck from 30-yards, with his strike flying into the top corner of the goal – finishing the comeback for the Tigers.
