Hull City 0-2 Luton Town: Hatters consign managerless hosts to home defeat

Luton Town inflicted a sixth Championship defeat of the season on Hull City, who sacked boss Shota Arveladze just hours before kick-off.

Andy Dawson was named interim head coach and took charge of the team but they conceded within six minutes through Alfie Jones’ own goal.

Regan Slater hit the bar for the hosts as they pressed for an equaliser but Henri Lansbury struck low from range for Luton’s second before the break.

Hull offered little in response in the second half, as Luton closed out the victory and moved up to fifth in the table.

Arveladze had been appointed in January as replacement for Grant McCann and guided the Tigers to safety and a 19th-place finish in the Championship last season.

Prior to his sacking, Hull had been on a run of four successive defeats under the Georgian and were 20th in the table with just three wins from 10 games coming into Luton’s visit to the MKM Stadium.

Assistant head coach Peter van der Veen also left the club with immediate effect earlier on Friday, leaving Dawson to take charge of the team just a matter of hours later.

Dawson made three changes to the side that were defeated 3-0 by Swansea on 17 September but they endured the worst possible start as Jones turned into his own net after Elijah Adebayo had hit the bar.

Despite growing into the game after conceding, Hull went in at the break 2-0 down after Lansbury’s sensational strike from well outside the box.

There was to be no comeback for Hull, however, as Luton defended well in a routine second-half performance to protect their lead.
