McShane loving life at Hull City

SOC­CER THINGS GO­ING WELL FOR KILPED­DER MAN

Bray People - - Bray Sport - Daniel GOR­MAN

KILPED­DER MAN Paul McShane has ad­mit­ted he is loving life at Hull City so much that the first three months of his time there have flown by.

The for­mer St. David’s stu­dent joined the Tigers at the start of the sea­son from now man­ager­less Sun­der­land and has played in ev­ery game since, oc­cu­py­ing the right back spot for the high-fly­ing Premier League side.

As re­gards whether his stay at the KC Sta­dium could be­come per­ma­nent, the for­mer Manch­ester United man says he hasn’t had time to think about it yet.

‘I haven’t even thought about the fu­ture be­cause the three months I have been here have ab­so­lutely flown by.

‘I’m en­joy­ing my time here and it has been good for me.

‘Things are go­ing well and hope­fully that will con­tinue.’

Speak­ing be­fore Hull’s 2-1 victory over Gareth South­gate’s Mid­dles­brough, the de­fender said: ‘I’m just looking for­ward to the game com­ing up.

‘Peo­ple are say­ing that we’ve gone six games without a win now, but I don’t think that is some­thing that is con­cern­ing the lads.

‘Two of those games were against Chelsea and Manch­ester United, two of the top sides in the league. We were dis­ap­pointed not to get a win against Bolton be­cause that was a great op­por­tu­nity for us.

‘But we’ve drawn the last three, so you can look at it as three games un­beaten. I think the lads are dis­ap­pointed that we haven’t picked up a win, es­pe­cially at Stoke.

‘There is no real panic, but it would be nice to pick up a win against Mid­dles­brough.

The man that McShane was mark­ing on Satur- day was none other than Eng­land in­ter­na­tional Ste­wart Down­ing and Hull’s num­ber 17 was rel­ish­ing the prospect.

‘I’ve played against him a few times be­fore. We won’t be new to each other and I know he has two good feet.

‘He’s also got pace, so it will be a good test for me.’

Hull City is cur­rently sit­ting in sixth place in the Premier League, with a to­tal of 26 points from 16 games.

Paul McShane is en­joy­ing a new lease of life at Premier League sur­prise pack­ets Hull City.
