  • 1-3 FT
  • Brown gives Posh the lead in the first 10 minutes
  • Ethan Hamilton sent off in the first half
  • Burke hits back for Hull from a free-kick
  • Ward hits post with free-kick at end of first half, JCH misses rebound
  • Lewis-Potter puts Hull into the lead early in the second half
  • Wilks finishes off Posh from spot after Kent mistake and foul

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.
