Hull City manager Nigel Adkins has this week suggested that he thinks Norwich City are better than Leeds United and Nottingham Forest.
He made the comments prior to his side’s clash against the Canaries at the KCOM Stadium on Tuesday evening, which went on to finish goalless.
Hull, who currently sit 22nd in the Championship table, have lost to both Leeds (1-0) and Forest (2-0) earlier this season.
Adkins told The Hull Daily Mail: I’ve watched the footage of Norwich and they’re top of the league for a reason. They’re an excellent side.”
“I thought Leeds were good but Norwich are probably better. They play out from the back.
“You talk about Nottingham Forest keeping possession, they’ll keep possession a hell of a lot more than that.
“They’ll be a far tougher opponent than Nottingham Forest. They pass the ball for fun.”
All three sides are considered contenders for promotion, Norwich are currently the league leaders, with Leeds directly below them in 2nd, Nottingham Forest are a few places down in 6th going into the weekend.
Social media users have given their reaction to what he had to say. Despite Adkins’ side drawing with the league leaders, Hull fans were left feeling rather mixed – check those tweets out on the next page.
