Sunderland 0-1 Hull City: Tigers reach Championship play-offs at hosts’ expense thanks to Liverpool’s Fabio Carvalho’s first goal for the club

  • Bournemouth, Brighton, Brentford and Aston Villa are embarrassing the top clubs with their managerial appointments, why aren’t the big boys bolder? It all begins

Hull City avenged their Boxing Day home defeat to home side Sunderland with a hard-fought 1-0 victory at the Stadium of Light on Friday night.

Michael Beale’s side had the greater effort and the lion’s share of possession but were met by a resolute Hull defense that kept their first clean sheet in eight games in all competitions.

The visitors’ victory came in the 71st minute after a controversial corner was awarded following a collision between Sunderland stopper Anthony Patterson and Tigers veteran Billy Sharp.

Despite replays appearing to suggest that the final touch came from the former Sheffield United captain, Liam Rosenior’s side were awarded a spot-kick and earned by Fabio Carvalho’s deflected half-volley.

The on-loan Liverpool winger’s first goal for the club ensured the Tigers leapfrogged their hosts as they moved into the Championship’s top six.
