Tony Mowbray admits his Blackburn Rovers side have to be wary of Hull City’s abundant attacking threats when they visit the KCOM Stadium tonight.
The Tigers host Blackburn hunting a second home win of the season after beating Reading 10 days ago and will also aim to extend a record that has seen them lose only one of 15 games in East Yorkshire since last December.
Blackburn were one of the few visitors to enjoy their trip to the KCOM Stadium last season, winning 1-0 almost a year ago to the day.
Mowbray’s men went on to become one of only three teams to stop City from scoring in all of 2018-19 but the Blackburn boss knows tonight’s opponents pose dangers.
“We’ve watched a few of their games,” he said. “They went to Brentford on Saturday and got a result and we all know how difficult that is.
“They beat Reading at home who have invested heavily, if you think of their two centre forwards who cost £15m.
“It’s about us though rather than the opposition. We went to Fulham and thought we could get a result and yet ultimately we didn’t, but gave a good account of ourselves.
“We will go to Hull and believe we can win but we have to be mindful of (Jarrod) Bowen, (Kamil) Grosicki and their quality players.
“They have a big centre forward, Tom Eaves, and they carry a threat. We will look to be as positive as we can.”
If City have reasons to be confident after a run of three games without defeat, Blackburn travel to East Yorkshire boosted by their 1-0 win over Middlesbrough on Saturday.
Mowbray has previously faced McCann when in charge of Peterborough in League One and he knows what to expect.
He added: “Grant McCann is a coach I know from his Peterborough days, and then at Doncaster. His teams like to play football, keep the ball.
“They like to move the ball around the pitch, have a pivot in midfield and then look to play with two number eights through the midfield and then the individual quality they have on the outside.
“Ultimately when you play a Grant McCann team you know what you are going to get. But we will go there and compete and look to make a mark.
“We are looking forward to this game and going to Hull and looking to build on the momentum of the win at the weekend.”
