SUMMARY: Hull City 4-1 Burton Albion

Tigers boss Leonid Slutsky will undoubtedly be pleased his inaugural match in charge of Hull City on home soil went exactly to script, as the hosts swept aside 10 men Burton Albion by a convincing scoreline to record their first win of the Championship season that sees City join the early pace-setters.

Hernandez hat-trick!

City really could've been on the score sheet early doors as they missed two gilt-edged chances, before Hernandez headed in the rebound from Hendriksen's fierce shot that cannoned off the bar on 7 minutes. The hosts continued to press, missing further good chances, before Burton found their feet to equalise on 33 minutes through Irvine. Minutes later, the visiting goal scorer was sent off for a second bookable offence on 38 minutes, giving the home side impetus for the impending second period.

And once again, Slutsky delivered during the interval, as the Tigers tore into Burton upon the restart and Grosciki headed in on 51 minutes to restore the Tigers' lead. Three minutes later Hernandez was tucking in his second of the afternoon to provide breathing space for City, before securing a well deserved hat-trick on 68 minutes to put the Brewers to the sword and ensure Hull City ran out worthy 4-1 winners.
