Honeyman reflects on ‘massive’ change at Hull ahead of Bristol City clash

Hull City midfielder George Honeyman has given his thoughts on his side’s recent upturn in form, as he looks ahead to a trip to Bristol City on Wednesday night.

Honeyman suffered relegation to League One with Sunderland in 2018. Two years on, he is looking to avoid the same fate with Hull.

The Tigers have taken four points from four games since the Championship resumed, a respectable tally considering it had taken them 11 games to record four previously.

Reflecting on this recent improvement, Honeyman believes the key is belief that stems from their new-found attacking threat.

“The pleasing thing from the last few games – against Birmingham, Middlesbrough and West Brom – is that we’ve looked capable of winning all three,” said Honeyman.

“We’re going into games with a real belief now and feeling like we’re going to pick up points and win games, which is massive, and long may that continue.

“We’ve looked a real threat going forward recently and that has been a huge positive for us all.

“I don’t want to allude to it too much but, with the Charlton game, we probably could’ve played three 90-minute games that day and still not scored.

“It’s something we’ve worked hard on as a group – staff and players – and long may it continue.

“If we can keep showing our quality in the final third then we’ll give ourselves a chance of winning every game we play.”


Hull sit a point outside the relegation places ahead of their clash against manager-less Bristol City on Wednesday, they parted company with long-serving manager Lee Johnson after Saturday’s defeat to Cardiff which meant the Robins had lost all four games since the restart, the only side to do so.

On paper, it provides a great opportunity for Hull to edge further away from the relegation zone.
