’s suffered a frustrating a night at the Yorkshire derby as Championship strugglers Rotherham United beat them by two clean goals.

After two wins last week at home against Bolton Wanderers and Reading, Hull City suffered their second successive away loss after losing two weeks ago against Leeds United. The Tigers have won just one point from their last three away games.

It was 28 minutes into the game as the referee awarded a penalty for Rotherham. Hull’s defender Moses Odubajo fouled Rotherham’s Kirk Broadfoot after the defense had failed to clear a corner. Club skipper Frecklington smashed the ball into Allan McGregor’s net giving Rotherham the lead from the spot. The hosts later doubled their lead in the 57th minute through Newell.

Despite their chances, Hull City failed to make any change in the game’s result as the encounter ended 2-0 with Hull suffering their fifth loss of the season.

The loss kept Hull City in the fourth position in the league after 22 games with 41 points, five away from Middlesbrough at the top of the table, while Rotherham went up a place to 23rd with 18 points.

The Tigers will host 5th placed Burnley on Boxing Day before going to Preston North End two days later on 28th December, then at Queens Park Rangers on the first day of the new year.
