Long scored Hull City's only goal during Saturday's preseason match against Barnsley.

The Tigers played their starters for most of the preseason match which allowed Long to score in the second half. Despite joining Hull City in January, Long still managed to tie for the team lead with four goals scored last season and looks primed to lead the attack for another season.

Long did not attempt a shot during Hull City's 2-0 loss to Aston Villa on Saturday. The Villa defense did a great job as they held Hull City to just seven shot attempts despite the Tigers having a 56-44 percent advantage in possession.

Luckily for fantasy owners, Long still has a midweek trip to Manchester United before Gameweek 37 is over. The quiet day is a bit surprising, as Long had attempted six shots in the past two matches.

Long has scored four times for Hull City since joining the club in January and will get two matches (at Aston Villa, at Manchester United) in Gameweek 37 to add to his total.

Long (knee) is expected to be fit for Wednesday's match against West Ham United, reports Sky Sports. Hull City manager, Steve Bruce, expects the striker to be recovered in time after picking up the injury last Saturday against West Brom.

Long joined Hull City in January from West Brom and has boosted the struggling Hull City attack. While he may not take as many shots as teammate Nikica Jelavic, he has provided similar production and appears to be one of the Tigers' top scoring options.
