LIVE: PNE vs Hull City

Last updated: Saturday, 07 August, 2021, 15:51

Declan Rudd puts his head in where it hurts as the ball doesn’t quite reach his area, he’s currently receiving treatment.

Emil Riis opens the scoring!

Alan Browne finds space in midfield and releases Tom Barkhuizen, his low cross is perfect for Riis at the far post to tap home!

PNE sub: Rudd is replaced by Iversen

Neither team has taken control of this contest so far, but it’s an enjoyable game.

A potential point of history

Declan Rudd’s substitution was due to concussion, making him potentially the first concussion subtitute in English football.

It now means that PNE can still make three subs and Hull can now make four.

Keane Lewis-Potter slots the ball underneath Iversen to equalise.

Smallwood slipped a ball through for Lewis-Potter coming from left wing back who calmly took the effort on.

Tom Barkhuizen’s long throw is nodded on at the near post and Riis volleys the ball over from the penalty spot.

There will be five more minutes added on at the end of the first half.

Barkhuizen is booked for a late tackle on Keane Lewis-Potter.
