Ahead of Chelsea’s FA Cup tie with Hull City on Friday, Hull City boss Nigel Adkins admits his team will need a lot of magic to win Chelsea.
“We’ve probably got 12 on the injured list,” Hull boss Adkins said.
“So, it’s a challenging scenario that we’ve got. We’ve got to play players who probably won’t last the full 90 minutes, so how can we impact with the substitutions?
“It’s a shame because we’ve been on a consistent run at the moment. Our performances have been good and you’re trying to get a run of form.
“But, again, we’re going to have to change the team around again. We need a lot of magic to help us, let’s face it, because they’re an outstanding team.
“We’re going there under no illusions but it’s the FA Cup and anything’s possible.”
