BBC Sport commentator turns Hull City match preview into work of art

How to make sure people read your Hull preview...

Faced with the prospect of hammering out a match preview for Saturday afternoon's fairly nondescript Premier League fixture between Hull and Swansea City, BBC commentator Alistair Mann decided to jazz things up a bit.

Mann cobbled together a wonderfully impressive 30-line poem to set the scene for the game at the KC Stadium.

Why, it even rhymes and everything! Here's Mann's masterful work in full:

"Back in April, all was well, the Tigers roar was loud,

The Swans they left defeated, the home fans'...

Swansea must get back on track after Spurs loss by taming Tigers

Swansea City manager Garry Monk discusses reports linking Ecuador international Jefferson Montero to match-fixing.

Swansea will still be sore after a late, undeserved 2-1 defeat at home to Tottenham last week. This Saturday will give the team a chance to vent their frustration on a far more vulnerable opponent in Hull City, but only if they can keep their focus.

Swansea can't keep relying on Wilfried Bony for goals says captain Williams

Swansea manager Garry Monk pointed to individual mistakes as to why his side fell to Tottenham at home despite controlling most of the game.

Ashley Williams believes Swansea must lift the scoring burden from top marksman Wilfried Bony.

The Ivory Coast striker became the first player to score 20 Barclays Premier League goals in the calendar year during Swansea's 2-1 home defeat to Tottenham on Sunday.

But Bony also passed up several other scoring opportunities as Swansea frittered away copious chances to see off a Spurs side they dominated for long periods before being floored by a late Christian Eriksen sucker punch.
