Chalk Lane 1-3 Hull utd

Hull went into this looking to improve on last weeks disappointing result. They came up against Chalk Lane who have a similar league record and usually brings up a tough clash with the league rivals.

The game started brightly, and Hull looked moving the ball around and deservedly took the lead after only 5mins. Callum Staves inswinging corner was headed home by Matty Walker. The wind and rainy conditions didnt really do any favours for both teams as they wanted to play some good football. After 30mins Chalk equalised after a mix up in defence left the striker to slot home under Hull keeper Ashley Elliott. Hull had a penalty appeal waved away by the referee and that just seemed to spur Hull utd on more and more. Callum staves striking the post on from the edge of the area. With a couple of minutes to go before the break Hull took the lead again through Callum Staves, who went one on one with the Chalk Keeper, who missed the ball and left Staves to slot home. HT 1-2
Hull manager John Duffill was forced into a change at HT with Staves picking up and injury when scoring and Tresor Kalilwa was brought on, and that seemed to be the game changer… Kalilwa was a thorn in the Chalk side all 2nd half. Hull were denied a 3rd goal when a long ball over the top left Kalilwa through on goal and the Chalk keeper came rushing out, Kalilwa went to lift the ball over him but the keeper handled the ball outside of his area, but the referee decided it only warranted a yellow card! Hull kept pressing and pushing away and the game was wrapped up by Tresor Kalilwa who nipped inside of the area to slot through the Keepers legs to make it 1-3 to Hull.
Hull looked to add more and with seconds to go Kalilwa went through one on one only for the referee to blow for full time… Hull deserved the 3 points today, and worked hard for it with the wintery conditions. Well done to all the lads and continue onto next week.
