The hosts lost 2-0 at KCOM Stadium when Portsmouth replaced them at the top of the Premier League
Hull City’s worrying run continued Friday night with a 2-0 home defeat to promotion rivals Portsmouth at KCOM Stadium.
Although Portsmouth failed to score in the match, two own goals from the home team fell on a third straight defeat to ring the Christmas alarm bells.
It was also a win with Pompey jumping over City to lead the table, and this is where City reporter Barry Cooper rates the performances of Grant McCann’s men.
Matt Ingram: There is nothing to do in the first half but get the ball out of the net and again in the second. Couldn’t do much about it either. 6/10

Callum Elder: One of the better performers in the first and again in the second period tried to move forward. Could he have done better for the second? Certainly one of the more consistent city players in a difficult time. 6th. 5/10
Reece Burke: Lucky to get away with a frustrated / irritated kick late in the match that embodied the night. 6/10
Jacob Greaves: Got himself into chaos to kick off and on the wrong side of Raggett and lost the air battle the second time around. A good learning curve. 5/10
Josh Emmanuel: On the right side up and down decent enough and along with Docherty, he was probably the most effective performer in town. 6th. 5/10
Richie Smallwood: Made two early challenges approaching a booking and seemed to calm down afterward. Got through without getting a ban. 5/10
Greg Docherty: City’s most dynamic player in the first half showed a fair amount of energy and willingness to make things happen. 7/10
Regan Slater: Gave the ball away a good deal in the first half and went away shortly after the second half. 4/10
Mallik Wilks: Spiced up by Emmanuel and should have hit the target a few minutes after Pompey started. Showed promising glimpses but couldn’t go into it with great enthusiasm. 5/10
James Scott: Shot a header wide but was absent in the first half before it was pulled off for Lewis Potter at break. 4/10
Josh Magennis: He barely had a look at his 50 appearances until he defended early in the second half and scored an own goal under pressure from John Marquis. I saw a late header from the crossbar on the right end. 5/10
Keane-Lewis Potter (for Scott 46): After falling off the bank and trying to take chances, he showed quite a bit of early promise. It doesn’t help anyone figuring out how they are in the situation they are in. 6/10
Tom Eaves (for Slater 62): I didn’t really get involved, even though I was there for almost half an hour. The city didn’t create much and then he struggled to get involved. 5/10
