Unbeaten at home: 8/8

Despite having the ability to implode away from home, City's form at home this season is peerless. Already the only club in the PL/Football League with an unbeaten home record they added to that today making it 8 wins from 8 after a 2-1 victory of fourth placed Hull.

City we out of the blocks liken a house on fire, and it took only three minutes for Helguson to nod home, banging himself into the post in the process. it was a a serious stoppage that looked like being the end of his game, but warrior that he is he came back on, bloodied, beaten but unbowed. The returning Kevin McNaughton was forced off soon after, and that disrupted City's momentum and Hull grew into the game, but mainly without threat. They did get the ball in the net, but it was given as handball (but there was an offside in there too - take your pick). 1-0 HT.

In the second period, the sub (Kiss) was himself subbed as a precaution. hull continues to enjoy large amounts of possession with relatively little impact.

The game was sealed when makeshift full back Gunnarsson delivered a perfect cross for the diving Hudson to convert. City inevitably didn't make it easy on the fans though, conceding sloppily as Added time beckoned, making for a nervy last four minutes. But the game was seen out. great contributions all round, but for me especially, Whitts, and my MoM Kim Bo Kyung, who I thought was outstanding today.

Up the City!
