SUMMARY: Hull City 0-1 Blackburn Rovers

Optimism. It is very much in short supply in East Yorkshire these days, as today was testimony to. What the few who actually bothered to turn up today witnessed, was far from palatable, as the home side turned in a worryingly lacklustre performance, from a manager famed for his enthusiasm. Just like Bruce, Phelan and Slutsky before him, Adkins is already beginning to wither under Allam rule.

Two games, one goal, no points...

As many Hull City fans predicted, the lack of investment into this squad by the owners is already starting to come home to roost. The Tigers laboured in the first half against Blackburn, who were organised and stoic in the approach, if lacking invention. But it was the visitors on hand to unpick City’s glaring defensive frailties once again, as Dack netted two minutes before the interval.

The Tigers had been feeding off half chances throughout the first period without really threatening, but did force a wonder save from Raya in the Blackburn goal in the second half. Yet, it was desperate stuff from the hosts, despite a frantic last quarter, which saw de Wijs and Dicko spurn to glorious chances to level matters. Ominously, City are already in the bottom three – and Tuesday’s trip to Rotherham already looks massive.
