Form

Hull City Ladies have played 6 games, winning one, drawing two and losing three. Read more about the season so far here!

The Foxes have played eight and have drawn two and lost six.

Hull City Ladies earned a hard fought 2-2 draw against Nottingham Forest Women last time out, despite conceding twice in stoppage time, under the circumstances it was still a fantastic and spirited Tigress performance.

It was a thrilling match at Eastwood Football Club, goals from Emily Smith and Rebecca Beech put the Tigresses two goals up, but goals from Annabel McKechnie and Rosie Axxten clinched a draw for Forest.

With nine minutes of injury time and the Tigresses down to 10 after Suey Smith limped off, Forest goals came on the 92nd and 95th minute.

We were absolutely class today, the best we’ve played, better then we played against Middlesbrough and Sunderland, that was a very good performance,” said Adi Costello.

The last game before lockdown for the Foxes was a defeat against Middlesbrough. A 1-2 defeat against table rivals Middlesbrough saw them stuck at the bottom of the table.

Last Outing

The last outing between the two sides was Sunday 12th January 2020 as Loughborough clinched a 3-2 victory. Helen Lynksey and Katie Thompson scored the Tigresses goal but goals from Tiana Hicks and a brace from Rebecca Knight secured three points for the Foxes.

One To Watch:

Costello said (after Nottingham Forest): “A completely different side to last week, same girls, I’m really pleased, they were absolutely incredible today and if you’re going to say who’s your player of the match, I couldn’t tell you, all 11 of them, well 14 they all give everything they have got.”

This weeks ones to watch will be the full team as the Tigresses look forward to two games at Haworth Park before this year ends.
