Middlesbrough manager Jonathan Woodgate has pinpointed Hull City’s two main attacking threats ahead of the game against the Tigers on Sunday.
Grant McCann’s side are a decent team, currently sitting 12th in the table, with Woodgate anticipating that both Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki will cause Boro’s defence major problems this weekend:
“They are a very good team on the counter-attack and they have som every good players. They have players like Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki, a Polish international who I have liked for years.”
Bowen has scored 10 goals in 16 league games this campaign. He generally plays off the right-wing but he has been utilised as a centre-forward in recent matches against the likes of Derby and West Brom.
Grosicki generally plays from the left flank, having scored five times in the Championship for Hull this season. Both players will need to be marshalled very carefully by Middlesbrough’s defenders.
Woodgate will be hoping to build on Boro’s 2-2 draw against QPR last time out with a win against the Tigers at the Riverside Stadium. However, their opponents are good on the road, having won against Fulham and Nottingham Forest already this campaign.
