Hull City overcame Championship leaders Newcastle United in a penalty shootout at the KCOM Stadium on Wednesday.
The regulation period of the game was dour at best. Between both teams, only two shots were registered on target in all. Hull's chances of progressing looked even worse in the 89th minute as Dieumerci Mbokani saw red for losing his head completely. The man on loan from Dynamo Kiev pushed and kicked at Jamaal Lascelles before lunging forward at him at his head. He may now face a 3 match ban. Meanwhile, the tie spilled into extra time and former Hull man Mo Diame put the Toon ahead. However, the Tigers showed some real grit and equalised a minute later. Henriksen's strike was spilled by the Newcastle 'keeper before Snodgrass knocked it in. Jakupovic amde two saves in the shootout as the Tigers won 3-1. Snoddy, Dawson and Huddleston were all on target as Newcastle missed 3 of theirs. Newcastle's finishing had been poor all night and they had looked the better side with 32 shots. However, their profligacy in front of goal cost them dearly. Nov 30 - 10:33 AM

It wasn't much but it was enough for a draw as Michael Dawson scored from a Robert Snodgrass free kick for a 1-1 draw.

Robert Snodgrass has been Hull City's best attacker this season by a fair distance. He did just enough on Saturday against West Brom to secure a needed point for,the home side. The results must still be better if City want to stay up but given that Albion has won twice in a row it was a solid point.

Robert Snodgrass yet again fell victim to being the outstanding player for an outclassed side as Scotland lost 3-0 to England.

At least while the result was the same, it all occurred in a different jersey as Snoddy represented Scotland against England at Wembley. Snodgrass proved his fitness again to fans playing 81 minutes while still coming off the back of an ankle injury which was meant to rule him out of this tie. He made a few good touches and continued his usual service with good deliveries to the extent that Danny Rose was kept occupied. Passing to Snoddy in one breakaway would have been the better option for Leigh Griffiths but he didn't utilise his open teammate. Hanley should also have finished a chance put on a plate for him by the Tigers' playmaker. David Marshall sat on the bench for the Scots while Shaun Maloney was not selected for the squad. Andrew Robinson also missed out as he is injured.

Mike Phelan played his cards brilliantly last weekend as Hull ended a streak of 6 losses in the league with victory over Southampton.

The inclusion of Robert Snodgrass on the bench was a bit of a surpirse, as the Scot had only just returned (early) to training from an ankle injury during the week. However, when needs must and desperate times call for desperate measures, it was to Snodrass who Phelan turned. Early injuries to Keane and Hernandez saw Snoddy take to the pitch midway through the first half. Phelan had only planned to give him 30 minutes, but in an hour of play, he scored once to cancel Austin's opener and assisted Dawson's winner. Both of those pivotal moments came within a two minute period where Snodgrass' guile and creativity won them the game. He finished well from Clucas' cross after holding his run to lurk near the spot. His curling powerful cross from deep seconds later was perfectly teed up for Dawson too while he had created a good opportunity for Maguire early on.

Hull City have confirmed via their official Twitter account that their Scottish midfielder Robert Snodgrass will be out of action for up to four weeks.

The Tigers confirmed that Snodgrass had damaged the ligaments in his ankle during the 2-0 defeat to Stoke in GW9. This will come as a huge blow to the side whose form has dipped and now find themselves in the relegation zone. The 29 year old winger is currently the team's top scorer with four goals and they will now have to cope without him for up to five games.

Hull City dropped into the bottom three after their fifth straight Premier League defeat.

The Tigers followed up last weekends’ drubbing by Bournemouth losing 2-nil at the KCOM Stadium to a resurgent Stoke City side. Pre-match Mike Phelan had been forced into a reshuffle after scans confirmed Andrew Robertson could miss up-to 8 weeks having sustained a significant calf strain. Sam Clucas dropped into left-back with Robert Snodgrass playing just ahead of him in a wider role, and it’s the Scottish international who will be the cause of major concern after coming off second best in a collision with goalkeeper Lee Grant. "He got stood on," revealed Phelan after the game. "He's got a bruised ankle and we will assess that in the morning." Snodgrass was seen leaving the stadium on crutches with his foot in a protective cast and the early signs ahead of game week ten do not look good.

Hull's caretaker boss Mike Phelan will be hoping that all of his club's off field ossues can be advanced or resolved in the next fortnight so the club can focus its efforts on the pitch.

A promising start to the season has begun to fade into memory after three successive defeats - to Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea. Two of those three defeats also featured a sending off which highlights just how tough a task those games were. Phelan himself will want his contract situation to be resolved. He is still a caretaker manager after 7 GWs and it can't be a comfortable situation. The club is also going through a takeover. Regardless, at 15th in the table, the Tigers need to buck up their ideas in a forthcoming set of favourable fixtures - Bournemouth (A), Stoke (H) and Watford (A).
Oct 3 - 8:15 PM

Hull City under still-caretaker manager Mike Phelan have continuously churned out unlikely results this season. However, maybe there is too much luck involved for it to continue?

The Tigers have mainly got to thank Scotsman Robert Snodgrass for his contribution to this with 2 goals - he is also their main shooter with 12 shots. What's most striking is Hull's dependence on the long ball and Abel Hernandez's ability to compete for it. They lead the league for long balls attempted with 83 and more of their action comes in their own third than any other team. Amazingly, they also play the least football of any team in the opposition third. Their conversion rate of the (2nd last in PL) big chances they had points to how perilous their play really is. 6 goals is an overperformance for their play, and as defences wise up to their basic tactics, it's hard to see their success continuing.

Robert Snodgrass scored for the second consecutive week and the third time this season in Week 5.

It wasn't a strong outing from Hull City who have started the season in surprisingly good form. While it wasn't great from Mike Phelan's men overall the match saw another goal from Robert Snodgrass who has been Hull City's best attacker thus far with three goals in five matches including today's penalty and last weekend's set piece.

Hull City was on the other side of a dramatic late-game goal with Robert Snodgrass securing a point in a 1-1 draw with Burnley.

Snodgrass carried over his spectacular form with Scotland during the international break, where he scored a hat-trick in a World Cup qualifier against Malta just days ago, to score the equalizer against Burnley on the final play of the match off a free-kick in the 95th minute. Down 1-0 after Burnley's 72nd-minute goal, Tom Huddlestone drew a foul outside the box that set Snodgrass up for the last-second goal, his second of the season. Both Ryan Mason and Will Keane made their club debuts as substitutes.

Robert Snodgrass continued his fine start to the season by netting a hat-trick for Scotland.

The Scots were pitted against Malta in their opening World Cup qualifier and swatted the minnows aside after early struggles. "Snoddy" opened the scoring on the night when a cross from the right flank on the edge of the box curled over all the expecting foreheads to nestle in the top left hand corner. However, Malta drew level and held out until the interim with the score 1-1. Snodgrass spurned a great headed opportunity before later scoring a penalty and slotting home his side's 5th in a 1v1 with the goalkeeper. Hull fans and fantasy managers alike will hope that the 28 year old can maintain his form when the PL returns.

In a result no one could have expected, Hull City managed to defeat the defending league Champions Leicester city by a 2-1 scoreline.

The Tigers were able to take advantage of a Foxes side that were not moving the ball fluidly and what chances they did create were not hitting the target. Despite a patchwork XI, Hull were an equal match with the champs in the first half and found an opening goal in spectacular fashion. Just before the break, a corner was headed on target but punched away by Kasper Schmeichel. The ball landed on the chest of Abel Hernandez and he sent an overhead kick that took a touch off of Adama Diomande who also went with an overhead and the ball found the underside of the bar. After allowing Leicester to equalize, Robert Snodgrass, who was very lively both on set pieces and open play smashed home the match-minner in the 57th minute with a low strike to the corner. It may not last long, but Hull at the moment are incredibly at the top of the league table.

Hull City have released a statement confirming Robert Snodgrass has not suffered a setback during his recovery from a serious knee injury and the midfielder will continue to step up his rehab.

Steve Bruce invested heavily in the Scottish international last summer but the unfortunate Snodgrass suffered a terrible knee dislocation just 40 minutes into his Tigers’ career ruling him out for between 9-12 months. His loss coupled with injuries to other key players - Nikica Jelavic [21 starts] following knee surgery and Mo Diame [2 starts in 2015] due to a persistent knee problem - ultimately had a huge bearing as Hull struggled to absorb their losses with such a small squad. Recovery of the trio is paramount if Hull hope to bounce straight back into the BPL.

Steve Bruce has confirmed that new signing Robert Snodgrass is set to miss at least six months after a scan revealed the midfielder dislocated his knee and damaged ligaments during the win over QPR.

The news comes as a devastating blow for the Scottish international who was hopeful of a return within 2/3 months; but a second battery of tests indicated the damage was far worse than first feared after his initial scan proved inconclusive. The Hull City squad is already stretched having to fight on two separate footballing fronts - Premier and the Europe League - and this latest development could force the Tigers coach back into the transfer market with only ten days of the window remaining.

Hull City's opening day victory at Loftus Road was tainted by the news that new signing Robert Snodgrass could be set for an extended spell on the side-lines.

Steve Bruce fears the worse after midfielder Robert Snodgrass was replaced just before half-time after failing to recover from a heavy Joey Barton tackle. The Tigers manager confirmed post-match that his new £7 million man twisted his knee in the challenge and will be sent for a scan to confirm the full extent of the damage. The injury adds to a growing list of concerns which include Liam Rosenior and Alex Bruce (both back); Hull City take on Lokeren from Belgium on Thursday in the Europa League.
