Hull celebrated their third straight away league winHull City climbed to fourth in the Championship table with a comfortable victory over Stoke City.The Tigers had fortunate deflections for two of their three goals in the Potteries.But they were still more than worthy winners as the plummeting Potters were outplayed on home soil to suffer a fourth defeat in five games.There was only one winner from the moment that Hull struck with two goals in two first-half minutes from Aaron Connolly and Adama Traore.Regan Slater’s shot took a wicked deflection for a long-range third to seal Hull’s third straight away win.Top scorer Andre Vidigal did pull one back for the hosts but, in their sixth season back at this level after Premier League relegation in 2018, Alex Neil’s extensively reassembled Stoke side now sit 20th in the second tier. A previously drab game was brought to life on the half hour with the first of those two Hull stunners.Former Stoke loan signing Jaden Philogene wriggled his way though to the right byeline before pulling back for the unmarked Connolly, whose scuffed right-foot finish deflected in off Stoke defender Michael Rose’s leg – his fifth goal of the campaign.Then, almost straight from the restart, the Tigers attacked down the left, Connolly cut in and had a shot blocked – and Traore finished confidently from 10 yards, his first goal of the season.Connolly also had a header cleared off the line by home midfielder Daniel Johnson, who had earlier fired just wide for Stoke. But the Potters did at least end the first half on the prowl when Sead Haksabanovic’s free-kick was turned aside by Ryan Allsop.The Hull keeper then came to the rescue again at the start of the second half when striker Wesley turned to blast a fight-foot piledriver which was brilliantly turned over his own bar by Allsop.Hull looked to have settled it when Slater’s speculative 25-yard left-foot shot ballooned off a defender and over Stoke keeper Mark Travers’ head for a fortunate goal on 73 minutes.Four minutes later Stoke top scorer Vidigal, back from injury and on for early first-half hamstring victim Tyrese Campbell, gave the Potters some hope with his own fifth goal of the season – but it proved to be mere consolation.Who’s next?Stoke now face two successive long away trips – to Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday before Saturday’s trip to Bristol City. Hull are back at home next Saturday, when they entertain this weekend’s Championship star turn Plymouth Argyle.Line-upsStokeFormation 5-3-21Travers2Gooch23McNally5Rose16Wilmot12Johnson15Thompson28Laurent6Burger10Campbell20Haksabanovic1Travers2Gooch23McNally5Rose16WilmotBooked at 42mins12JohnsonSubstituted forHoeverat 79’minutes15Thompson28LaurentBooked at 75mins6BurgerSubstituted forWesleyat 35’minutes10CampbellSubstituted forCunha Vidigalat 13’minutes20HaksabanovicSubstituted forBaeat 79’minutesSubstitutes7Cunha Vidigal11Gayle13Bonham17Hoever18Wesley22Bae24Tchamadeu27Léris30SidibeHullFormation 4-4-1-117Allsop33Christie5Jones4Greaves3Vinagre23Philogene15Morton24Seri27Slater10Traoré44Connolly17Allsop33Christie5JonesBooked at 38mins4GreavesBooked at 55mins3VinagreSubstituted forMcLoughlinat 81’minutes23Philogene15Morton24SeriBooked at 45minsSubstituted forLokiloat 89’minutes27Slater10TraoréSubstituted forTwineat 65’minutes44ConnollySubstituted forDelapat 65’minutesSubstitutes1Ingram6McLoughlin7Tufan9Sayyadmanesh20Delap22Lokilo25Furlong26Smith30TwineReferee:Thomas BramallAttendance:21,142Live TextMatch ends, Stoke City 1, Hull City 3.Second Half ends, Stoke City 1, Hull City 3.Jason Lokilo (Hull City) wins a free kick in the defensive half.Foul by Ki-Jana Hoever (Stoke City).Scott Twine (Hull City) wins a free kick in the defensive half.Foul by André Vidigal (Stoke City).Jason Lokilo (Hull City) wins a free kick in the defensive half.Foul by Luke McNally (Stoke City).Substitution, Hull City.
