Peterborough United 3-0 Hull City

23 July 2022

Hull City lost their final pre-season fixture 3-0 against Peterborough United at the Weston Homes Stadium.

A brace by Sammie Szmodics and finish from Joel Randall condemned the Tigers to defeat.

Shota Arveladze named the same starting XI that faced Leicester City in the Corendon Cup at the MKM Stadium. Lewie Coyle captained the side while new signing Benjamin Tetteh was named on the bench.

Chances were a premium in the early exchanges of the first half as Jonson Clarke-Harris fired wide, following a quick Peterborough counter attack, before Harrison Burrows drilled his shot straight at Matt Ingram.

At the other end, Óscar Estupiñán came close to his first goal in Hull City colours as his effort flashed narrowly wide past the left-hand post. Clarke-Harris and Jean Michaël Seri both struck free-kicks wide for their respected sides, before the Posh opened the scoring on the 25th minute.

Good build up play between Kwame Poku and Nathan Thompson saw the latter drill the ball across the penalty area. Clarke-Harris dummied the delivery for Szmodics to convert from close range.

Allahyar Sayyadmanesh looked to get the Tigers back on level terms, but his shot was caught by Lucas Bergström after it took a deflection off Frankie Kent. In the other goal, Ingram had t be sharp down to his right-hand side to push away Poku’s dipping drive.

Burrows fired his free-kick over the bar, while Jack Taylor drilled his shot off-target as the first half drew to a close.

The hosts doubled their advantage immediately from the restart as Poku drove to the byline before cutting the ball back for Joel Randall to finish from close range. Two minutes later and Peterborough had a third as Poku played through Szmodics who powered his effort past the onrushing Ingram.

Clarke-Harris looked to get on the scoresheet, but his free-kick from the edge of the penalty area went wide, before Ricky-Jade Jones missed an open goal after Ingram parried Jack Marriott’s initial effort into his path.

Both teams created half chances heading into the final quarter of an hour, with Ozan Tufan having the best opportunity, as the Tigers suffered defeat in Peterborough.
