Leeds United have gone back to the top of the Championship after beating Hull City 1-0 at the KCOM Stadium last night.
The Tigers now found themselves languishing just above the bottom three and their early season struggles look set to continue after another defeat.
Nigel Adkins’ side were looking to build on the useful point they gained against Middlesbrough on Saturday but another loss to Leeds last night means they are now winless in four games.
Leeds had the better of the game and Hull found it hard to carve out chances and were on the back foot. Highly-rated forward Tyler Roberts opened the scoring for Marcelo Bielsa’s side in the second-half with a powerful shot into the bottom corner from outside the box.
The Whites could have had more in truth but Hull may have fancied their chances of sneaking a draw like they did against Boro but Bielsa’s men had a rather comfortable evening, despite what the score line shows.
Next up for Hull is a trip to Bramall Lane to face in-form Sheffield United in what promises to be another big test for Adkins and his side. Here is how their fans reacted on Twitter to losing to Leeds United last night-
Adkins would still manage to lose a tactical battle playing himself at Subbuteo. #hcafc

Tonight was a disgrace. No urgency, no desire, no press, no pace in transition, looked wide open to the counter. Could’ve been 0-4 at half time. We are less than the sum of our parts at the minute and the blame for that falls squarely with the manager. #AdkinsOut #hcafc

Been going to #hcafc for twenty years and this is by far the most useless, talentless and heartless team iv ever witnessed. No identity. No leaders. Adkins hasn’t a clue. Martin didn’t get above walking pace. Seen better players in Humber Prem than Stewart. League one inbound…
