Stoke recorded their fourth away win in their five games on the road as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Championship. The Potters have kept clean sheets in all those four wins with Phil Jagielka proving to be the star of the show this time around. Jacob Brown opened the scoring in the 22nd minute before Tom Ince doubled the lead in the 50th minute.
Hull’s Grant McCann: “We were nowhere near good enough and got out of the game what we deserved. But I have an honest and young group of players who know when they have not performed, so they don’t need me shouting and screaming at them. They just need to make sure they are better in the next game because too many of them were off their game and it was a poor performance from start to finish.”
Stoke assistant Dean Holden: “Full credit to Incey – he’s a great example for every player in the squad because he’s always one of our best trainers whether he’s in the team or not and you get your reward when you work like that every day. He played a slightly different role today, but all of the midfield three gave us energy. Most of the first and second balls went to a Stoke City shirt and, on top of that, we kept the ball effectively. To score two good goals away from home and restrict a side with Tom Eaves’ aerial threat to one shot on target was very pleasing.”
