The Blues achieved that back in December, when they beat Grant McCann’s side 2-0 at the KCOM Stadium.

With only two League One games played since, Pompey are understandably no longer top of the pile, sitting third.

However, all that can change come 5pm this evening – with another victory over the Tigers.

Although, let’s not forget about second-placed Lincoln, who are at home to Northampton today.

Fingers crossed Blues Bryn Morris can do his parent club a favour as he prepares to make his loan debut for the Cobblers at Sincil Bank.

Back to Fratton Park, however, and you can following today’s action by simply staying tuned to our live match runner.

  • Pompey are looking to complete a league double over Hull
  • Victory today can see the Blues go top of the table again
  • However, Lincoln could return to the top, too, with a home win against Northampton
  • Pompey have no fresh injury worries
  • One change as Curtis comes in for Jacobs
  • Daniels signing announced ahead of kick-off
  • Whatmough own goal gives Hull lead
  • Honeyman doubles Hull’s lead on 61 minutes
  • Second Whatmough own goal gives Hull a third

White tries his luck with a free-kick but it fails to hit the target 

Dan Crowley and Josh Magennis on for Malik Wilks and Gavin Whyte 

Raggett is first to White’s free-kick but heads wide 

Harrison, who has just come on for Curtis, forces a fine save out of the keeper 

That looks game over. Coyle slides ina dangerous cross and Whatmough tries to clear but puts it into his own net 

3-0 to Hull. Another Whatmough own goal

That’s another poor goal to concede. Pompey failing to clear the ball and Wilks’ effort is blocked on the line but drops for Honeyman, who prods home from close range
