Live: Hull 1 Norwich 0 F/T

Thanks for your company throughout the match. Stayed tuned for reports and reaction from the KC

Hull take the points! What a brilliant defensive display that was

Garrido is booked for a blatant tug on Graham

Hull running down the clock in the corner well...

Huge cheers as McGregor comes out and collects Snodgrass's cross. The Canaries running out of time...

Six minutes of added time here at the KC Stadium!

Hoolahan is trying his best to pick holes in the Hull defence but they just will not be breached

Boyd jinks into the box as Hull refuse to sit back. They are pushing for a second goal now!

The final change of the match as Koren comes off for Rosenior

Hoolahan jinks through two challenges but Chester flings himself at the shot to snuff out the danger. That sums up how well Hull have defended today

Hull push forward and yet more anguish for the home fans as Koren's inviting cross drifts all along the six yard box with no-one gambling

Another change for Hull as goalscorer Brady makes way for George Boyd

Norwich are piling on the pressure but Hull are defending for their lives here and are edging closer to a heroic win

Yellow card for Livermore following a cynical hack on Hoolahan

Huddlestone saves the day for Hull after Snodgrass had dangerously headed the ball across the Tigers' six-yard box

And Norwich roll the dice for a final time as Hoolahan replaces Redmond

Aluko receives a standing ovation as he makes way for Graham. He's put in a cracking shift for the Tigers today

Norwich clear the corner but Hull enjoy a much-needed spell of possession

Martin has given the ball away in some careless positions for Norwich and another stray pass allows Aluko to break forward. Davies of all people provides support and Turner is forced to kick the ball out for a corner

Save! A brilliant one-handed save from McGregor keeps out Van Wolfswinkel's header. Garrido picked out the Dutchman superbly

A second substitution for Norwich as debutant Elmander replaces Tettey

Lovely link-up play between Van Wolfswinkel and Tettey but the Norwegian's left-footed strike sliced just wide. Norwich getting closer...

Quick feet again from Howson on the edge of the Hull box but this time he gets under his shot and McGregor watches it drift by. Norwich asking a few questions now as the 10-men drop deeper

Howson robs Huddlestone and forces McGregor into a smart stop from 25 yards

Martin gives the ball away on the way on the halfway line and Aluko just has Turner to beat. The Norwich defender does well though, and robs him just in time

After three minutes of treatment, Davies is bandaged up and fit to continue

Plenty of boos for ex-Leeds man Snodgrass as he comes across to take a corner. He delivers but a nasty clash of heads sees the game stopped as Davies receives treatment

Last-gasp tackle! Aluko lobs the ball through to the onrushing Koren but Whittaker comes across and makes a crucial interception just as the Slovenian was about to shoot

Redmond skips past Elmohamady with a couple of stepovers but his shot is weakened by a deflection and McGregor gathers easily

Snodgrass has taken over from Howson on the right wing with Tettey dropping into central midfield. It's all Norwich at the start of the second period with Hull set up to hit them on the break

Snodgrass replaces Johnson for Norwich at the break. No changes for Hull

Just been having a chat with a number of other journalists and we still can't work out why Sagbo was dismissed. There has been no conclusive camera shots of the flash point but it was rather telling that there were no complaints from the Hull players

A highly-controversial first half comes to an end at the KC Stadium with Hull a goal up, but a man down. Robbie Brady's 22nd minute penalty the difference

Brady cuts inside Whittaker and lets fly with his right foot but the ball sails well over the top

Huddlestone boots Redmond up into the air but referee Jones opts against handing out a yellow card

Tettey charges through the middle with no-one tracking him but Johnson's throughball is overhit and drifts out for a goal-kick

Huddleston, who won the free-kick, hits the target but Ruddy punches clear

A petty pull from Tettey hands Hull a free-kick right on the edge of the Norwich box. Chance for the hosts...

Since the red card Hull have shifted Aluko through the middle on his own. He is causing Norwich problems, too. After turning Turner he plays the ball inside to Livermore, who places his left foot shot well wide

More pressure from Norwich but Johnson, after working some space on the edge of the box, slices his shot into row Z

Norwich work the nine outfield men of Hull from left to right, Howson swings in a cross, but Van Wolfswinkel heads over

Back to the game and Hull continue to press forward. Koren makes a break but his speculative long-range effort with the outside of his right foot sails over

The incident stemmed from a Norwich corner, where Turner appeared to be pushed to the floor when going for a header. A skirmish followed and referee Jones pulled out a red. The home fans are in a state of shock

Very hard to tell what has happened there folks. An off the ball incident in the Hull box has seen Sagbo, who won a penalty for his side moments earlier, sent off!

RED CARD! Sagbo is sent off!

Norwich have lost the way in the last 10 minutes or so after dominating the opening exchanges. Mis-communication between Martin and Garrido sees the former pass the ball straight out of play, much to the Hull fans' amusement

Just seen the replay and Turner can count himself very unlucky to have been penalised there. Referee Mike Jones saw it differently, however, and Hull lead against the run of play

GOAL!! Brady sends Ruddy the wrong way from the spot

Former Hull player Turner is adjudged to have hauled down Sagbo in the box and the penalty is given. Looked very, very soft


Over! Hull produce their best move of the match. Brady has looked lively and after his cross was cleared, Aluko split the Norwich defence with a deft backheel which sent Livermore clear through. The former Spurs midfielder composed himself but placed his left-footed effort over the top. Big chance goes begging for the Tigers

A very lacklustre start from Hull, who have been wasteful in possession. Norwich looking the more comfortable but the score remains goalless

Save! Redmond ghosts past former team-mate Davies and rifles a left-foot shot from 25 yards which forces McGregor into a diving save

Norwich are looking dangerous going forward and Hull look nervous at the back. Howson drills a cross low and hard and Van Wolfswinkel will feel he should have done better with his attempted prod towards goal

Frustration for the home fans as Aluko invitingly cuts the ball across the Norwich six yard box but there is no-one gambling

A first attack of the game for Hull but Brady's cross is too close to Ruddy, who claims comfortably

Close! Brilliant start from Norwich. Redmond starts the move before Van Wolfswinkel slips Howson into the box. With no shot on, Howson cuts the ball back to the supporting Whittaker, his cross is met by the head of Fer, but his effort is wide with McGregor beaten

Both teams are set up 4-5-1, Redmond makes and early break down the left for Norwich but Aluko tracks back well and snuffs out the danger

The announcer is pumped up, so are the crowd. Hull to kick-off...

The atmosphere is building here at the KC and the house is almost full with 10 minutes until kick-off. Norwich have sold out what seems a pretty meagre allocation behind the goal to my left and the stadium is a sea of orange, black, yellow and green!

Mark Aspinall from Crewe has been in touch and says: "I expect this one to be tight and tense and expect a draw to be the outcome."

The sun has broken through the clouds here on Humberside and both sets of players are warming up on the pitch. Tweet your score predictions my way to @skysportsdrabs

Both sides show two changes to their starting XIs from the opening day. Former Tottenham duo Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore will make their full Hull debuts in place of David Meyler and Danny Graham, while Norwich also change two as Alexander Tettey and debutant Leroy Fer replace Elliott Bennett and Wes Hoolahan. Robert Snodgrass returns to the bench for the Canaries.

Despite being the bookmakers' favourites for relegation, Steve Bruce has been extremely bullish in his programme notes, saying: "I want to build something lasting here, a legacy that me and this club can be proud of."

Good afternoon everyone and welcome to online text commentary from the KC Stadium, where Premier League football has returned to Hull. Norwich City are today's visitors with both sides searching for their first win of the 2013/14 season. Stay here for minute-by-minute updates throughout the match.
