Posh 1-3 Hull
Little to write home about for the last half hour of that game. Damage was done early when Posh let Lewis-Potter find space to score in the box and gifted Hull a silly penalty after poor play from Wilks. The game all changed on that Hamilton red card and Posh lose their second home game in the league.
Free-kick on halfway, high foot from Dembele. Both him and Greaves went for the ball but only one went to the floor screaming. Yellow Dembele.
Posh just happy that Hull counter broke down by a poor pass out of play on the wing. It had started when Thompson won the ball with good pressure well into the Hull half but just as he was about to control the ball and look for the pass, Jones runs right into him and knocks him off the ball.

Scott’s cross headed out by first man Kent. Ball recycled out to Eaves on the edge of the box but his effort curls so far wide.
Hull free-kick on the right, level with the area, Butler adjudged to have pushed Scott, could easily have gone the other way.
Corner goes straight out of play.
Posh corner swung in, Brown has a shot which hits Jones from close range, appeals for handball but the ref isn’t interested. Hull immediately break and win a corner of their own when Butler picks out a cross that so nearly found Honeyman streaking clear.

James Scott and for Lewis-Potter and Jones on for JCH.
Best opening of the half for Posh, Thompson keeps coming forward, pulls Coyle out wide and passes back into the space in the centre where Dembele is waiting but his sidefooted shot is blocked by Burke. Looked like he could have done better.
Short corner from Honeyman, chested down by Coyle, out to Lewis-Potter but Posh emerge from the crowded box with the ball after a couple of deflections.
Corner Hull, Wilks sees his cross headed out by Kent.
First Hull chance in a while, snapshot from Lewis-Potter just inside the box well over after a knock-down from Eaves.
Thompson finds space on the right of the box, the space for him to cross is blocked off and he goes back to Mason who tries to chip a ball over the top into the box for JCH but there is far too much on it. That is not his game at all. Tough for him being asked to play out of position. Reed will surely be disappointed not to have come on, he will surely have to start the next match.
