REPORT: HULL CITY 0-1 TOWN

1 April 2022

Town bounce back on the road

- Hull City 0-1 Huddersfield Town
- Terriers back to winning ways after international break
- Harry Toffolo on the scoresheet

Huddersfield Town had a flying start to the run in, sealing a 1-0 win over Hull City at the MKM Stadium on Friday evening.

Harry Toffolo’s second half rebound effort saw the Terriers bounce back to winning ways in their first Sky Bet Championship game following the March international break.

The game got off to a very energetic start, with both sides trying to establish some dominance.

Lee Nicholls was called into action in the ninth minute, flying to his left to tip over a Hull free-kick from danger man Keane Lewis-Potter.

Town came close to breaking the deadlock in the 21st minute. Some excellent play from Lewis O’Brien, Harry Toffolo, and Josh Koroma saw the ball fall to Duane Holmes in the box, but his half-volley was blocked before it could trouble Matt Ingram.

The game settled for a period, with Hull enjoying possession. They came close to taking the lead in the 34th minute, as full back Fleming got inside Jon Russell to curl in a cross. Fortunately for Town, Tom Eaves couldn’t quite reach it, seeing it run out for a goal kick.

The 41st minute saw an exchange between Sorba Thomas and Brandon Fleming in front of the dugouts, for which both players were booked.

The first minute of added time brought a big moment. Under pressure from Rhodes as a cross was delivered, a defender threw himself into a diving header, and replays showed he cleared it behind with his hand rather than his head. However, no penalty was given! 

Seconds later, big Hull striker Tom Eaves was sent off following a second yellow card. His first came for a cynical foul on Levi Colwill, whilst his second followed a foul on O’Brien.

Town got out of the blocks fastest in the second half, with Josh Koroma having a couple of early shots. His first was blocked, whilst his second was saved well by Ingram.

Moments later, some great work from Sorba Thomas saw him feed Rhodes, but the latter’s first-time effort was well blocked by Sean McLoughlin before it could trouble their ‘keeper.

The 54th minute saw Ingram unleash an absolute miracle save to deny Koroma! Getting down quickly to his left, he denied the forward from close range as Town looked certain to take the lead.

Town made attacking changes as the game wore on, but it increasingly looked like the goal might not come despite a deluge of balls into the Hull box - and another possible penalty that was awarded as a free-kick as Koroma was felled.

However, the deadlock was finally broken in the 79th minute by Toffolo! Second half substitute Danel Sinani swung in a great ball which Tom Lees headed goalwards. Ingram saved it well, but the rebound fell to Toffs who made no mistake in finding the back of the net!

Hull came INCREDIBLY close to finding an equaliser in the final minute of added time. Thankfully, Allahyar’s bouncing header was wide!

The referee blew his final whistle, seeing the Terriers run out with all three Sky Bet Championship points.
