Hull 0-1 Ipswich: James Norwood seals win for Tractor Boys

Tuesday 23 February 2021 21:27, UK

Ipswich impressively coped with difficult footballing conditions to win 1-0 at faltering Hull.

James Norwood’s first-half strike earned the visitors a deserved victory from a game which was affected by fierce gales.

Norwood – a menace throughout – was bright and alert at the back post to half-volley home Myles Kenlock’s cross-field delivery after 15 minutes.

Hull should have equalised 14 minutes later when Keane Lewis-Potter inexplicably dragged wide from an inviting position inside the penalty area but that was as close as the hosts came to scoring.

Ipswich thereafter showed impressive defensive solitude when it mattered, with their goalkeeper Tomas Holy untroubled throughout a nondescript second half.
