It may be early in the domestic season but things do not look pretty for Hull City in the EFL Championship. With only nine points through their opening 14 matches, the Tigers need to buckle down defensively and get it going this weekend against Bolton. U.S. Men’s National Team defender Eric Lichaj is tied for the team lead with 13 appearances this season, and the veteran will look to help the Tigers to a needed win on Saturday.
Lichaj’s versatility has been key for Hull as they try to trim the amount of goals conceded so far. They are currently one of 10 teams who have allowed 20 goals or more so far this season, and with some young defenders paired next to him look for Lichaj to lead the bunch forward at Reebok Stadium.
