Max O’Leary – 7

He had nothing to do in the first half but he came into action in the second half when he made a good save with his feet at the near post. A quiet afternoon but with an important clean sheet.

George Tanner (out of 71, Cornick) – 7

You might be wondering how your early shot didn’t hit the back of the net. He linked up superbly with Sykes on occasion, fueling the winger behind defence. Ebiowei’s trickery caused him a problem or two in the first half but kept him quiet in the second.

Zak Vyner – 7

Another comfortable afternoon in the heart of the defense. He read the game superbly, although Hull were largely toothless in attack, apart from his chance from a corner. Impressed with the way he ran the back line.

Thomas Kalas – 7

He matched striker Estupiñán with his pace and strength in his first start of the season. He apparently forged an immediate partnership with Zak Vyner. A good game for Kalas to strengthen his physical form.

cam spring – 7

Industrial down the left side, but had to think twice before committing too much up front to avoid leaving Kalas exposed. A brilliant block in the second half to deny the equalizer.

Matty James-8

His high pressing caused problems for Hull by winning the ball back deep in City’s half. He intercepted the play as effectively as ever and rarely gave away the ball in possession.

joseph williams-8

He had an excellent block against Christie in the first half. He energized in midfield and enjoyed another fine afternoon to continue his run of good form. He and James dominated the battle in the middle of the park.

Alex Scott (out of 79, Weimann) – 7

Hull struggled to lift him into that No10 position at times. He made a few runs from deep in the box and was unlucky not to get on the end of a cross, especially in the first half. He was the subject of some strong challenges.
