Report: Hull City U23s 4 Watford U23s 1
Hull City Under-23s turned on the style as they returned to winning ways with a convincing 4-1 victory over Watford on Monday night.
Producing their best performance of the season so far, Jon Beale's side opened the scoring after just 13 minutes when Lewis Ritson showed great strength to hold off his marker and head Elliot Holmes' free-kick beyond Hornets keeper Sam Howes.
It was 2-0 on 34 minutes when Max Sheaf's perfectly-weighted pass found the run of Robbie McKenzie, who showed great pace to go through on goal before finding the back of the net with an emphatic - and unstoppable - effort.
And the Tigers' dominance of the opening 45 minutes was rewarded with a third goal three minutes before the break - and what a goal it was! Picking up the ball midway inside the visitors' half, Keane Lewis-Potter effortlessly glided past three Watford defenders and curled a superb finish past Howes.
Watford briefly threatened a comeback early in the second half when pulling a goal back six minutes into the second half through Ryan Cassidy's close-range finish, but Lewis-Potter's second of the evening - another fine finish - ensured the Tigers recorded their second Professional Development League victory of the season.
