Hull took the lead against Leicester on the stroke of half-time through Adama Diomande, but Riyad Mahrez restored parity for the Premier League champions just two minutes into the second half from the penalty spot.

Robert Snodgrass restored the Tigers’ lead just before the hour mark, and the hosts held on until final whistle.

Over the course of the 90 minutes at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday afternoon, Hull had 50% of the possession, took 14 shots, of which five were on target, and earned five corners.

Hull will take on Swansea City away from home at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League next weekend.
