Blackburn Rovers moved back into second place in the Championship after a controlled performance against Hull City earned them a fourth straight win.

Sammie Szmodic’s classy finish early in the first half proved enough as Rovers comfortably held off a disappointing Tigers side.

Top scorers Ben Brereton Diaz and Sam Gallagher were denied further goals after the break by smart stops from Nathan Baxter.

Hull never threatened to repeat their win over Rovers in last season’s fixture in January-after owner AcunIlicali completed his takeover-failing to produce an effort on target throughout the campaign as JacobGreavesandDimitriosPelkaster missed the target with a free header[perlawananyangakandatangpadabulanJanuari-selepaspemilikAcunIlicalimenyelesaikanpengambilalihannya-gagalmenghasilkanusahatepatpadasasaransepanjangpetangkeranaJacobGreavesdanDimitriosPelkasterlepassasarandengantandukanpercuma[ondingfixtureinJanuary-afterownerAcunIlicalicompletedhistakeover-failingtoproduceaneffortontargetallafternoonasJacobGreavesandDimitriosPelkasmissedthetargetwithfreeheaders
