SUMMARY: Queens Park Rangers 2-1 Hull City

Hull City manager Leonid Slutsky was rightly bemoaning his luck ahead of this match, given events against Wolves in midweek that brought about a defeat on home soil and the devastating news that sees Abel Hernandez's injury ruling the star striker out for the bulk of the season, to provide more turmoil to an already light squad. City had the lead here, but threw it away late in the game to leave Loftus Road without anything to show.

Oh great...

The match was a pretty tame affair in the first half with the hosts missing a sitter from Luke Freeman, which was pretty much all they had to offer for the first 45 minutes. City weren't much better - and had the added blight of new signing Kevin Stewart limping off just 10 minutes into his debut to add to their sizeable troubles - but David Meyler's cross on 35 minutes found Jarrod Bowen lurking in the 6 yard box and the youngster poked home while off balance to give the Tigers a precious half time lead.

City, short on quality, light on numbers and with very little to cheer about other than the score, were soon to find the last quarter of the match would not be their friend. Home substitute Smith got the scores back to parity on 74 minutes, but worse was to follow, as another home substitute Sylla, knifed the visitors in injury time to whisk the points away from the Tigers.

We've had better weeks...
