New year but the same story for Hull City as they suffer a 1-0 loss to Blackpool to add to their relegation woes after Gary Madine netted a first-half penalty

Hull supporters' old year ended with the dream news that Turkish businessman Acun Ilicali is on the verge of taking over but the new one opened with a Gary Madine penalty adding to their relegation woes.

Madine struck a flawless spot kick on the half-hour, hard, high and straight down the middle, after Jacob Greaves was judged to have tripped Josh Bowler just inside the Hull area.

That dampened the celebratory mood among the travelling fans who saw their team back in action after two Covid-19 postponements.
