played 90 minutes as Leicester grabbed their second win on the bounce under caretaker manager Shakespeare.

This comes after Hull 1-1 drew against Burnley in the last gameweek.

Hull opened the scoring in the 14th minute through a counter attack. Clucas’ low shot converted a low cross across the six yard box.

Hull’s lead did not last long after Christian Fuchs grabbed an equaliser with 28 minutes gone. Brilliant interplay between the left back and Jamie Vardy allowed Vardy to find Fuchs, who converted with his right foot.

Leicester always seemed the more likely to score, and after the break they capitalised on this pressure. Mahrez twisted and turned the Hull defence to finally angle an 18 yard strike into the bottom corner. This goal to make the score 2-1 was Mahrez’s first in the league since November.

The Tigers looked for an equaliser through Niasse, however Schmeichal palmed his low shot past the post.

However, the contest was over following Huddlestone heading into his own net in injury time.

This win leaves Leicester in 15th place, whilst Hull remain in the relegation zone in 19th place.
