As much as McCann might have liked a cup round, their priority remains the league as they try to prevent relegation for the second time in three years.
Hull is now preparing for their first league game this season at KCOM Stadium, where they were impressive in the premier league last season. Even if their offensive qualities, which showed against Preston, were decisive for winning the title, their defensive stability was also decisive for the top spot.
Only Watford conceded fewer home goals than Hull City’s 14 in the entire Football League last season. Another solid defensive, this time in the second division, could be vital to their hopes of survival.
The Tigers are now preparing for Saturday’s game against QPR, a team they have only lost to twice in their last 13 league games.

Mark Warburton‘s men failed to find a decisive goal and eventually agreed on a point. The 58-year-old admitted his team was reminded of how demanding the championship can be.
The Hoops have moved into the second round of the League Cup since last weekend after beating London rivals Leyton Orient after a 1-1 draw in 90 minutes 5-3 on penalties in Month.
QPR had an impressive end to the previous campaign, with only two teams scooping more championship points in 2021 than the 47 they accumulated.
However, they go into Saturday’s game in Hull after failing to win any of the last 13 away games in the league against promoted players, most recently with a narrow 1-0 win over Wigan in August 2016.
After scooping all three points in each of their last three away games last season, a win for QPR this weekend would bring them their fourth straight win on the road for the first time since May 2003.
