EVANS GETS HULL BACK ON TRACK

Corry Evans scored his first goal of the season for Hull City, which enabled the Tigers to get their season back on track. Hull City's form has been questioned at the start of the season, but they seem to be coming back to form at just the right stage ahead of the Christmas fixture list.

Hull City have now won four matches out of their last six, and the latest victory over Coventry has had a dramatic effect on the league table. Hull City are now up to fifth position in the table, with only a few points separating them from West Ham in the automatic promotion places.

It has been really a tight season in the championship, with not a lot separating the top teams from the bottom ones. This can be evidently seen in the difference in the number of points between the leaders Southampton and Leeds in the final play-off position. Only eight points separate the two teams, with six teams in between them. Hull City are also in the mix and the latest victory over Coventry City provides them with a much-needed points to keep up their challenge for the promotion this season. Hull City's financial problems following relegation from the Premier League are well-documented, but the promotion back to Premier League will provide them with the much-needed support financially.

"Nick is doing a great job at the minute and long may it continue. I hope Nick gets the job. He's attack-minded whereas Nigel was more defensive. It means we might be quite open sometimes at the back but that's how he wants us to play," former Manchester United trainee Corry Evans said after the impressive victory. Corry Evans scored the only goal of the game with a powerful shot from within the box.
