  1. FULL-TIME

    Hull 0-2 Sunderland

    All over. A BIG result at the bottom end of the Premier League.

    Head over here for all the post-match reaction.

    Thanks for your company!

  2. 'A great ball in'

    Hull 0-2 Sunderland

    Absolutely fantastic play from Sunderland. They looked as though they were going to play that free-kick short and that dragged Hull's defenders out of position. 

    Then it was a great ball in, bounced knee-height, and Jermain Defoe judged that if he let the ball hit him it would ricochet into the net... and that is exactly what happened.

  3. GOAL - Hull 0-2 Sunderland

    Jermain Defoe

    Big, big blow for Hull. Jermain Defoe pounces from close range. It looks like he was offside but the flag stayed down.

  4. Post update

    Hull 0-1 Sunderland

    Hull need time. They have four more minutes to find a leveller. Into stoppage time...

  5. Post update

    Hull 0-1 Sunderland

    There is a sense of resignation around the KCOM. Quieter than Hull Central Library.

  6. Post update

    Hull 0-1 Sunderland

    Evandro is straight into the action, firing a low shot wide of the left-hand post.

  7. Post update

    Hull 0-1 Sunderland

    Into the final five...

  8. Post update

    Hull 0-1 Sunderland

    Another throw of the tactical dice by Hull boss Marco Silva. On comes Evandro...

  9. 'Hull have looked hesitant'

    Certain Hull defenders have looked hesitant this afternoon, afraid of making mistakes. The hosts have found it hard to make an impression today and sustain any pressure.

  10. Post update

    Hull 0-1 Sunderland

    Andrea Ranocchia appears on the edge of the Sunderland box (nope, I've no idea what he is doing there either...). But the on-loan Inter centre-back dillies, dallies and doesn't get a shot away.

  11. 'The pressure is getting to the Hull players'

    You can see the pressure is getting to a few of the Hull players. Some sloppy play, and pressure does funny things to players who are usually so confident and composed.

  12. Post update

    Hull 0-1 Sunderland

    Into the final 10. Is this now or never for Hull? It is looking like never...

  13. SUBSTITUTION

    Hull 0-1 Sunderland

    Desperate times...

    Midfielder Alfred N'Diaye goes off for Hull, striker Dieumerci Mbokani comes on. 

    Attack!

  14. GREAT SAVE!

    Hull 0-1 Sunderland

    Jordan Pickford will be the curse of Hull tonight. Another great save from the Sunderland keeper, who makes an instinctive one-handed stop from Abel Hernandez.

  15. 'Hull have lost their main attacking threat'

    Hull 0-1 Sunderland

    Leon Osman

    Ex-Everton midfielder at KCOM Stadium for 5 live Sport

    I have played in many games as the underdog, and in reality you play with the pressure off because your supporters are hoping rather than expecting. Too much supporter pressure can make it harder for you to play with freedom and creativity. 

    Since Lazar Markovic went off Hull have had to move Kamil Grosicki, which has nullified the Tigers' main attacking threat.

    Hull City 0-1 Sunderland

    .

    This is how the table looks as things stand after that Sunderland goal. Not pleasant reading for Hull fans. 

    There's still time, though.

  17. 'Not many people saw this coming!'

    Hull 0-1 Sunderland

    Leon Osman

    Ex-Everton midfielder at KCOM Stadium for 5 live Sport

    David Moyes will be very pleased with his Sunderland team. They survived an early onslaught from Hull at the start of this second half and if anything they are now the side on top. They are showing a real desire to score the first goal... and there you are! A goal!

    Not many people saw this coming! Sunderland have been pressuring the Hull area. Arriving late after a John O'Shea flick on was diving Billy Jones, whose header goes in off the far post.

    Hull 0-1 Sunderland

    Hull are stunned. You can hear a pin drop at the KCOM.

  19. Hull in trouble

    Hull 0-1 Sunderland

    Nightmare for Hull. Sunderland might already be down but they are trying their best to drag their hosts down with them.

    And it is a simple goal.

    George Honeyman's corner is flicked on at the near post by John O'Shea, allowing Billy Jones - who reacts quickest - to power in with a diving header from six yards.

    Well, well, well.
