Tigers as Keane as mustard

- By THOMAS SAGE at Home Park

HULL boss Grant McCann was full of praise for his tabletoppi­ng side as they eased to victory.

Keane Lewis-Potter scored the Tigers 11thminute opener and teed up Greg Docherty for the third in the 74th minute, sandwichin­g Josh Magennis’ 58th-minute goal as Hull extended their winning streak to three games and 10 unbeaten in the league.

McCann said: “I thought the boys were excellent today.

“I thought we won individual duels all over the pitch and we looked really threatenin­g every time we went forward so I am really pleased with the result and really, really pleased with the performanc­e.

“We had to be right at them from the off. This season Plymouth have shown how good they are in the first 45 minutes so we had to start on the front foot and get an early goal.

“I was really pleased we went in 1-0 up at halftime – it was a really good, well worked and taken goal.

“I said to them at halftime we need to build on this, but we’ll have to ride out the first 10 or 15 minutes, and that’s what we did.”

Argyle boss Ryan Lowe said: “It was like men against boys in some department­s.

“In saying that, we were well in the game up until we gifted them the second goal. The first goal we could have done better and should have stood on the ball at their free-kick.

“We were beaten by a very good team in Hull City so we are taking nothing away from them. But in saying that we have gifted them one goal, the second, and maybe the third.

“Again give it away and they go down the other end and score. You can’t give a side that’s top of the league like they are half a chance because they’ll do that to you.

“I need to build a team and a squad to do what Hull City are doing to teams – be ruthless, pass the ball at the right time, the right side and be aggressive and win.”
