1st Team, Home

Johnson knows his former team will show plenty of passion in derby

Scunthorpe may be an unknown quantity for many teams in National Two North, but Steve Johnson knows only too well the dangers they possess.
Johnson made the swap from one side of the Humber Bridge to the other a couple of years ago and is a pivotal part of the Hull team his former side will face this weekend.
The versatile back knows Scunthorpe will want to be as disruptive as possible as they search for their first win of the season.
“Scunthorpe will look to be big in the scrum and driving maul,” Johnson said.
“They have a lot of heart so they will 100% be playing for the 80 minutes.
“But we know what we need to do to win the game.
“We have a lot of skill and can vary our game to suit who were playing.
“As long as we don’t get ourselves into a scrappy game, we’re confident we’ll get the win.
“I think if we can keep the tempo of the game high, fast and controlled, we’re in with a good shout.
“We want our Chants Avenue home to become the fortress it was last season.
“In our last home game, we was very unlucky and to be honest confused as to how we lost to Sedgley Park, but it goes without saying we want our loyal supporters to see us win.
“So all being well this week, we’ll get back to winning ways at home as well as away from home.”
