McCann Delighted With Promotion As He Sets His Sights On The Title

Grant McCann said he was ‘over the moon’ to secure promotion back to the Sky Bet Championship – before immediately setting his sights on putting the icing on the cake by winning the League One title.

Goals from Josh Magennis and Mallik Wilks gave Hull City the three points they needed to confirm automatic promotion with a 2-1 win at Lincoln City, but McCann insisted the job isn’t finished yet.

“I’m over the moon for everybody at the football club, particularly the owners for their backing of me last summer which I thank them for, and also the staff and players because everybody has been outstanding and it has been a real team effort.
