Under-23s preview: Hull City (H)

19 December 2019

The Iron's Under-23s side make a return to Premier League Cup action when they host Hull City on Friday (7pm kick-off).

The game will be played at the Sands Venue Stadium. We will have live text coverage on our Twitter feed, which can be accessed by clicking here, while there will be a report, photo gallery and reaction afterwards.

SCENE-SETTER

The Under-23s play their first game for 10 days, with the last match coming away at Mansfield Town on Tuesday, December 10th, where United were beaten 2-1 in the Central League Cup, with Andy Dales on target.

Previously in the Premier League Cup, United's Under-23s were defeated 2-0 by West Bromwich Albion in October before drawing 3-3 with Newcastle United in November, in which George Miller notched a hat-trick.

With the first team in action away at Grimsby Town on Saturday, it is likely to be a young side that takes on the Tigers. The Under-18s' players will be available to call upon too, as they're not in action again now until after Christmas.

First team manager Paul Hurst confirmed in his pre-match press conference on Wednesday that attacker Jordan Hallam could play a part as he steps up his recovery from a hamstring injury.

LAST LINE-UP (v Mansfield Reserves - 10.12.19)

IRON TEAM: Kelsey, Rowe, Butroid, Hornshaw (Potts, 45), Cummings, Bedeau, Pugh, Songo’o, Colclough, McAtee, Dales.

UNUSED SUB: Riches.

Admission for the encounter against the Tigers will be £3 for adults and £1 for over-65s and under-18s in the Lincs Lifts Stand only (Turnstiles 8A and 8B), while 12th Man holders for the 2019-20 season can gain entry free of charge providing they produce their season ticket card on the turnstile.

All spectators will have access to the club restaurant for catering point food and drinks before the game and at half-time.
