Leicester City shock Hull at home
Algeria’s Riyad Mahrez’ well taken strike was enough to earn bottom of the table Leicester a 1-0 away win at struggling Hull.
Both teams rarely produced chances in the first half and were unable to score in the opening half an hour. However that changed 2 minutes later when Algerian international Mahrez cut inside Hull City’s Davies to curl the ball low across Mcgregor.
The visitors looked the most threatening and were constantly able to cause the home team problems but seemed to lack the final touch. However it was Hull who had the final chance of the first half when Ahmed Elmohamady wasted a glorious chance when he headed Quinn’s whipped cross into the stands from 6 yards out.
The second half saw Hull come out firing after Steve Bruce’s multiple changes. The game was full of attacking intent from both teams, Abel Hernandez agonisingly headed onto the woodwork and it seemed like it was not Hull City’s day. Paul Konchesky was was shown a red card 2 minutes from time for a body check on Elmohamady.
However, Hull city were unable to take advantage of the man advantage and soon had one of their players sent off. Quinn stopped a Leicester counter attack by handling the ball to end a miserable day for the tigers.
