Saturday Sport Outlook
Hull FC are in Challenge Cup action when they play Wigan Warriors, for the second time in as many weeks this afternoon. The Black and Whites will be looking for revenge after last week’s 16-14 defeat, Wigan are also incidentally the side that knocked Hull FC out this competition last season. Brett Hodgson is without prop, Scott Taylor, due to injury. The duo of Jake Connor and Brad Fash also miss out with one game suspensions. Connor Wynne returns from a short loan at York City Knights to provide full back cover, while Josh Reynolds and Manu Ma’u both return from injury which will be big boosts for Hodgson. Kick off is 2.30pm.
Humber Premier League champions Beverley Town look to finish their phenomenal season on a high, when they travel to Pocklington this afternoon. Mike Thompson’s men could lead the league by an incredible 12 points after the match. This is made all the more remarkable as only half the fixtures will be fulfilled this season.
Beverley Town CC look to get back to winning ways after recent defeat to York CC 2nd’s last weekend. Driffield Town CC will look to build on their good run of form with 4 wins from the last 5 games, including the convincing victory over Harrogate last week. Driffield host Woodhouse Grange.
Hull City look to finish the season on a high with a trip to play off hopefuls Charlton Athletic on Sunday. Grant McCann was awarded League One manager of the month for April, in form striker Josh Magennis was awarded with April’s player of the month award for League One. If City win they would reach a club record points total. Only three points for former Tigers boss and current Charlton manager Nigel Adkins would keep the Addicks in playoff contention. It is unknown how City will line up for the fixture but George Honeyman will be missing with an ankle injury. Kick off on Sunday at The Valley is 12 noon.
