To-morrow morning at 6.40 the “Tigers” will make their longest journey since League football was suspended. Six and a half hours in the train will not be conducive to the best fitness of the side when it takes the field at the cycle town, yet I am sufficiently optimistic to imagine that a further two points will be obtained by the “Tigers.”
The team will be changed in two positions from that match won at home. The absence from left-half of Jack Pattison will let in the young Lancashire Fusilier, Bleakley, who has become a member of the Hull City Club. Pattison’s absence is accounted for by a family bereavement.
The other change is S. Stevens for Lieutenant Lyons, the latter being unable to make the long journey.
Hull City: N. Hendry; A. Wigglesworth and A. Betts; G. Jacketts, J. Edelston, and Private Bleakley; R. Hughes, David Mercer, Sergeant Potter, S. Stevens, and J. Lee.
Coventry City: Lundon; Littlewood and Chaplin; Roberts, C. Buckley, and Bishop; Newman, Needham, Sambrooke, Lowes, and Middlesmiss.
Referee: Mr. T.F. Prescott.
