📝 Report: Hull City 2-1 Bristol City

A highly-disputed penalty and a deflected winner denied City an opening day win over Hull City. 

The 70th-minute spot-kick, when Benjamin Tetteh went down without any contact for Ozan Tufon to score from the spot, and Jean Michaël Seri's shot off Timm Klose secured the Tigers' three points.

It was a frustrating end after a largely positive performance which saw Andi Weimann open the scoring on the half-hour mark.   

🧐 BACKGROUND

City started with the same team that started the 1-0 win over AFC Bournemouth.

There were debuts for Kal Naismith and Mark Sykes, while Kane Wilson is named on the bench after recovering from injury that ruled him out of the Cherries' visit.

✍️ WHAT HAPPENED?

City looked lively throughout the first half with Naismith and Sykes impressing on their debuts.

Sykes provided an early chance when he worked some space on the byeline and his cross found Matt James, who headed down to Matt Ingram’s left but the keeper pushed the ball wide of the post.

Hull managed to respond with Óscar Estupiñán almost getting on the end of Allahyar’s cross but the ball ran through to Dan Bentley.

The City captain had to be at his best to come out and spread himself wide to deny Estupiñán, who had an early penalty appeal dismissed, as did Jacob Greaves in the same minute.

Then came through the breakthrough with Naismith’s pinpoint free-kick to Vyner who headed back across goal and Weimann made no mistake.

City defended valiantly at the end of the half against four successive corners while Nasmith cleared over his own bar from a late attack.

HALF-TIME

Hull City started the second half brightly with Ozan Tufan hitting the post from the edge of the box.

Pearson replaced Mark Sykes and Alex Scott – both who had suffered heavy challenges – with Kane Wilson and Tommy Conway after 60 minutes.

Conway was in the thick of things early and sent a low cross which Ingram gathered low and then worked himself into space but fired over.

The Tigers responded when Benjamin Tetteh dived for the penalty and Ozan Tufan scored form the spot.

City had their own penalty appeal waved away when Rob Atkinson was man-handled in the box. 

Dasilva worked his way into space and shot across goal with his left foot while Weimann forced a save from Ingram from a narrow angle.

Then came the killer blow when Seri's shot from the edge of the box bounced off Timm Klose and wrong-footed Bentley.
