Hull City’s search for a win continues after they were held to a 2-2 draw by Wigan Athletic at the KCOM Stadium.
The Tigers were forced to come from behind against the Latics on Saturday as goals from Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki put City ahead before half-time. Teenage substitute Joe Gelhardt levelled the match in the final 15 minutes for the visitors.
It leaves City in 20th place in the Championship after seven matches, picking up just one win along the way.
We have devised our own Hull City power rankings looking at the club’s top 10 players based on form, talent, worth and influence, which will be updated following every game this season.
Here is the current top 10 power ranking list following the draw at home to Wigan.
10. Tom Eaves (re-entry)
City striker Tom Eaves has established himself as McCann’s first choice striker, despite the competition provided by fellow summer acquisition Josh Magennis.
Eaves had two prolific years with Gillingham before heading to East Yorkshire on a free in the summer, although he is yet to rediscover that form in the Championship.
Power ranking: 10th – His wait for a goal in black and amber continues, having failed to net in any of his eight appearances for the club in all competitions. His fortune is very much against, however, it was one of his best performances so far, where he really should have opened his account for the campaign.
9. George Honeyman (unchanged)
George Honeyman has been one of the summer arrivals to be among those that have established themselves as a key player under McCann.
Honeyman captained the Tigers on his full debut in a Carabao Cup victory over Tranmere Rovers in August.
Power ranking: 9th – Kept his place in the 11 with Dan Batty currently injured. As things stand, it is his starting place to lose on the right of City’s three-man midfield.
8. George Long (down one)
City goalkeeper George Long has emerged from David Marshall’s shadow from last season to stake his claim in between the sticks for McCann so far.
Long has been given the nod ahead of summer signing Matt Ingram, although the limited Championship experience that the duo currently possess is a slight cause for concern.
Power ranking: 8th – An afternoon to forget for Long in a game where he was hardly tested. He failed to deal with a free-kick that led to Chey Dunkley’s opening goal and made just one save against his former goalkeeping companion David Marshall.
7. Reece Burke (down one)
Former West Ham United defender Burke always looks assured at the back for the Tigers and has moulded himself into the club’s top central option since moving to the Championship.
Keeping him available will be of paramount importance to McCann, especially with the high-octane football currently at the KCOM that will rely on their back line to be as sturdy as possible.
Power ranking: 7th – Missed the game through an injury sustained against Millwall, his first Championship omission of the campaign.
6. Eric Lichaj (up two)
McCann named former Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa defender Eric Lichaj as his new club captain in the summer.
A very wise choice given his Championship experience, having also held a similar role with the Tricky Trees and America’s national side.
Power ranking: 6th – Returned to his natural position at right-back in only his second appearance at the KCOM Stadium this season. Adds much-needed Championship experience to the back four.
5. Jackson Irvine (down one)
Australian midfielder Jackson Irvine remains one of the club’s more dependable figures and is useful at both ends of the pitch.
City’s top goalscorer in pre-season and still the club’s vice-captain, Irvine will be key for McCann throughout the campaign, especially with Markus Henriksen heading for an exit.
Power ranking: 5th – A fairly quiet afternoon for him, although at times, he linked up well with fellow Australian Callum Elder on the left-backs debut in black and amber.
4. Jordy de Wijs (up one)
De Wijs struggled at times to stay fully fit during his debut campaign in England and will be hoping to to change that in order to stay above summer signings Ryan Tafazolli and Matthew Pennington in the centre-back pecking order.
Power ranking: 4th – Another impressive week for De Wijs sees him rise in our power rankings. After seven league games, the Dutchman (54) has already made eight more clearances in the Championship than any other player in the division.
3. Kevin Stewart (unchanged)
The former Liverpool midfielder has started with a string of bright performances in the opening weeks of the season.
His style suits the sitting role that McCann likes to have in his midfield, and it is a position he is cementing in the City side.
Power ranking: 3rd – Another solid display, although he will have been disappointed to have been beaten by substitute Gelhardt in the build up to Wigan’s equaliser.
2. Kamil Grosicki (unchanged)
Being one of Poland’s most capped members in their current squad best summarises the quality of Kamil Grosicki.
Last season, his goals and assists were crucial, especially when Nigel Adkins turned around the Tigers’ fortunes over the festive period.
Power ranking: 2nd – Continued his run of scoring free-kicks in a man of the match display. Almost netted two set-pieces against Wigan, with former teammate Marshall turning his later effort on to the post.
1. Jarrod Bowen (unchanged)
Jarrod Bowen’s inclusion in last year’s PFA Championship Team of the Year was a testament to his true quality.
It’s not every day that a winger has such a good goalscoring record that has seen him linked with Premier League giants Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
Power ranking: 1st – It may only be September, but Bowen’s equalising goal at the weekend was already his fifth in all competitions this season. The form of City’s two wingers is their sole source of goals as things stand, with all eight of their Championship strikes coming via City’s wide duo.
