Hull City 3-0 Cardiff City: Bluebirds Struggles Continue With Poor Performance Against The Tigers

Hamish Woodward

Hull City put Cardiff City to the sword at the MKM Stadium as the away side were resoundingly beaten 3-0 to alter both sides promotion chances.

The Bluebirds dropped to 12th in the table after a 4th defeat in 6 matches, continuing a poor run of form that has dented manager Erol Bulut’s hope of a promotion push.

Meanwhile Hull jumped up to 5th in the table as The Tigers aim to return to the Premier League for the first time since their relegation in 2017.

The Tigers dominated the 3pm kickoff, beating Cardiff in shots on goal and possession. The Bluebirds lacked any sort of plan or character, as last season’s troubles seemed to have seeped into this year’s campaign.

Rubin Colwill had Cardiff’s best chance in the first half when he fired over from a cross from Yakou Meite. This showed early glimpses of Cardiff’s attacking potential, but this did not carry on throughout the game.

Aaron Connolly netted the opener after 33 minutes with a tap in, scoring his sixth the season to silence the travelling City supporters.

Jan Alnwick was brought back in the side after some poor performances from Alex Runnarsson, but failed to stake his place in the team by completely missing the ball for the first goal.

Scott Twine fizzed a free kick into the top corner early on the second half, while Alnwick was caught in no-mans-land for Ozan Tufan’s audacious lob three minutes later ended the game as a contest.

Cardiff had a flurry of late chances but failed to test the Tiger’s keeper as the match ended Hull City 3-0 Cardiff City.
