Match Preview

Same again for Pearson? Hull manager Nigel Pearson is expected to name an unchanged side for the home clash with Preston. Pearson has no new injury or suspension problems and will be loathe to change a winning formula following last week's 5-1 derby triumph at Scunthorpe. Defender Liam Rosenior could return to the squad after his recent aerial collision with Leeds midfielder Lloyd Sam but James Harper is still struggling with a foot problem. Goalkeeper Vito Mannone, on loan from Arsenal, remains sidelined with a groin injury, so Brad Guzan will continue, while strike pair Matty Fryatt and Aaron Mclean will be looking to add to the five goals they scored between them at Glanford Park. Midfielder Tom Cairney was forced off against Scunthorpe and replaced by player-coach Nick Barmby, but is expected to be in contention again, but winger Richard Garcia is still working his way back following knee surgery. Preston boss Phil Brown could swing the axe when he returns to Hull with his side rock-bottom of the Championship. North End have yet to win since Brown was appointed last month and were thumped 4-0 at home by Bristol City last weekend. Rookie defender Conor McLaughlin suffered a fracture to his left fibula and a dislocated ankle in that loss and now faces six to eight months on the sidelines. However, Brown this week signed Everton goalkeeper Iain Turner on an emergency loan and said: "We have brought him in to create a more competitive environment for our current goalkeeper Andrew Lonergan." On-loan Blackburn midfielder Amine Linganzi remains sidelined with a groin injury, as does striker Iain Hume with a hamstring strain.

Match Report

Brown endures miserable return to Humberside Anthony Gerrard struck the only goal to ensure an unhappy first return to the KC Stadium for former Hull manager Phil Brown whose winless run in charge of rockbottom Preston was extended to six matches. Brown, placed on gardening leave as Hull boss in March 2010 and eventually replaced by Nigel Pearson in the summer, was installed at Preston in January, but the Lilywhites' last league win was on December 11 and they remain in freefall at the foot of the npower Championship table. Hull, who extended their own unbeaten league run to seven matches, took a deserved lead through Gerrard's towering header on the stroke of half-time and were troubled only in the closing stages by a Preston side bereft of confidence. The Tigers have lost only one of their last 16 games since a 1-0 home defeat to Humber rivals Scunthorpe in November, but Brown's side have won only one of their last 15 league games and remain 10 points adrift of safety. Tunisia international Tijani Belaid made his first start for Hull and was quickly into the action when his early angled drive was blocked by Preston defender Sean St Ledger. Hull had already gone close to taking a second-minute lead through Aaron Mclean's volley and went on to dominate possession without creating any clearcut openings. Preston's first chance fell to defender Leon Cort, who headed Adam Barton's corner wide in the 18th minute, while Hull midfielder Robert Koren forced Preston goalkeeper Iain Turner into a fine sprawling save with his powerful shot a minute later. Turner pulled off another commendable save 10 minutes before the break to deny Belaid from inside the area and Hull defender Corry Evans saw his 20-yard effort blocked by Cort. Tigers midfielder Koren skewed a long-range drive off target, but Hull took a deserved lead just before half-time when Gerrard rose to plant a downward header beyond Turner from Andy Dawson's corner. Koren powered a 30-yard volley just wide seven minutes into the second half and although Eddie Johnson lashed in a 25-yard effort, Hull threatened to extend their lead twice in quick succession. Matty Fryatt's shot from inside the area was blocked by the over-worked Cort and Turner did well to hold on to Cameron Stewart's stinging drive following Dawson's quick free-kick. Cort forced Hull goalkeeper Brad Guzan into a rare save in the 71st minute with another header before Gerrard diverted Barry Nicholson's shot and Dawson got in the way of a Billy Jones header. Preston enjoyed their best spell midway through the second period, with Nicholson, a 69th-minute replacement for Darel Russell, providing them with much-needed guile. But Stewart fired just wide for Hull before making way for substitute Jamie Devitt and Mclean's shot was blocked by Cort as the home side finished on top and despite two late scares when Preston substitute Paul Hayes and defender David Gray volleyed over the crossbar, climbed up to ninth place in the table.
