HULL CITY have something of a hold over Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town at the KCOM Stadium, unbeaten in their last five home encounters against the Terriers
It’s been over four years since the two Yorkshire sides met at the KC Stadium with both experiencing short spells in the Premier League.
Hull City 2 Huddersfield Town 0 (Championship) - Saturday, August 8, 2015
The Tigers had just been relegated from the Premier League in the 2014/15 season, following a two-year stint in the top division.
Steve Bruce named a side which included Tom Huddlestone and Andy Robertson as the men in orange and black looked to start the season with three points.
Winger Sam Clucas got the first for the Tigers five minutes before half-time, scoring on the rebound after his initial effort was saved.
On-loan Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom grabbed the other goal of the afternoon, smashing home from close range to get the home side off to a winning start.

At the time, Hull City were in the Premier League playing against a Huddersfield side who didn’t have the competition as a priority.
