    • 90'+5 A deep cross towards Hoolahan just misses him and McGregor claims.
    • 90'+3 Boyd drives forward for Hull on the break but his pass to Graham is a poor one and the promising counter-attack breaks down.
    • 90' There will be SIX added minutes.
    • 88' Elmander clatters into Livermore - the Swede lucky not to see yellow for that.
    • 86' Norwich are really going for it now, but there's a lack of quality with the final ball.
    • 84' Hull sub: Rosenior on, Koren off.
    • 82' Promising move breaks down on the edge of the box as Huddlestone dives in to dispossess Elmander.
    • 81' Koren drills a low cross across the face of goal - Boyd just fails to make contact.
    • 79' Hull sub: Boyd on, Brady off.
    • 77' Hoolahan almost gets in, but Chester makes a very good tackle to concede the corner.
    • 76' Livermore is booked for a foul on Hoolahan right in front of the ref. Hull feel Livermore was fouled moments earlier.

    • 72' Hull sub: Graham on, Aluko off.

    • 69' Hull drive forward on the break and Davies, of all people, forces a corner after a marauding run.
    • 68' Elmander has made an impact already. Has handed the momentum to the visitors.
    • 67' Great save! Garrido's cross is met by Van Wolfswinkel's bullet header - and tipped over brilliantly and athletically by McGregor. Great header, great save.
    • 65' Norwich sub: Elmander on, Tettey off.
    • 64' Chance for Norwich. Van Wolfswinkel chests the ball into Tettey's path, but he slices his first-time shot horribly wide.
    • 63' Howson has another effort from distance after creating space 25 yards out. Not far off again as his rising effort clears the bar by just an inch or two.
    • 61' Snodgrass, who is roundly booed every time he touches the ball given his Leeds connections, is penalised for a foul on Figueroa as it looked like he was about to cause some trouble on the right wing.
    • 59' Howson picks up a loose ball and hammers an effort at goal, which takes a slight deflection but it comfortable for McGregor.
    • 58' Tettey gets away with a late one on Aluko - and ref Mike Jones has a wod with Tettey and the Norwich captain Martin.
    • 56' Davies is patched up and back on. We're back underway after that stoppage.
    • 55' Play is stopped as Davies goes down with a head injury - there is blood.
    • 54' Turner was up for the corner but Livermore hoists it clear.
    • 53' Figueroa heads away but Tettey spanks a volley back at goal that deflects out for a corner. Good Norwich spell, this.

    • 50' Chance for Hull as Aluko brilliantly scoops the ball into Livermore's path, but Turner gets across to clear before Livermore can shoot.
    • 49' Redmond cuts in from the left but drills a poor shot at goal. Redmond had support in the box there.
    • 47' One change at the break, and it's for Norwich: Snodgrass on, Johnson off.

    • 45'+1 Redmond hits the post! The midfielder lifts the ball over the wall and sees it strike the outside of the base of the post.
    • 45' Another positive run by Redmond is halted by a late Hull challenge and Norwich have a free-kick 25 yards out.
    • 44' Patient build-up by Hull. Huddlestone finds Brady, who cuts onto his weaker right foot and sends a rising drive just over the bar.
    • 43' Hull's Davies gets away with a late challenge on Redmond - but receives a ticking off from the ref.
    • 42' Opening for Van Wolfswinkel, but last ditch tackle denies him as he prepares to pull the trigger from 20 yards.
    • 41' Tettey almost gets on the end of a diagonal ball into the box, but Figueroa sees the ball away from danger.
    • 40' Ref Mike Jones is getting a tough ride out there today. Penty of soft decisions that are infuriating the fans and players.
    • 38' Huddlestone takes it himself but it's too close to Ruddy, who punches well clear of the box.
    • 37' Tettey drags Huddlestone to the ground and the Hull man has bought another free kick in a dangerous position.
    • 36' Livermore finds Aluko, who swivels well but his shot whistles just past the far post. Good chance for Hull, who are not holding back after going down to ten men.
    • 35' Aluko is shoved by Martin and Hull have another free-kick in a dangerous psoition on the right.
    • 33' Johnson drills a wild effort over the bar.
    • 32' Chance for Norwich. Howson's hanging cross from the right is headed just over by Van Wolfswinkel.
    • 30' Koren drives into space 25 yards from goal and drills a shot over the bar.
    • 29' The red card was for a head-butt.
    • 28' Drama here as Sagbo sees red. Referee Mike Jones was very quick to pull out the red card for what we can only assume is violent conduct. Every camera seemed to miss it but we'll clear that up for you as soon as we can.
    • 27' RED CARD. Sagbo has been sent off.
    • 26' Turner, the man that conceded the penalty, is claiming a penalty at the other end.
    • 25' Huddlestone is beginning to boss the midfield. The former Spurs man is seeing plenty of it at Hull enjoy a good spell.
    • 24' Sagbo chases a beautiful arrowed pass by Brady, but it's slightly too long for the Hull man.
    • 23' That goal has really lifted the KC Stadium. The home fans were getting a little quiet as Norwich started to call the shots.
    • 22' GOAL! Brady slots into the bottom corner, sending Ruddy the wrong way. 1-0 Hull.
    • 19' Penalty to Hull! Turner drags down Sagbo and it's a clear pen.
    • 17' A little bit of a stalemate at the moment. Neither side wanting to commit themselves early in the game.
    • 16' Aluko lucky to get away with a lunge on Fer, who managed to skip away from the challenge. Could have been a yellow.
    • 15' Chance for Hull! Aluko back heels the ball into Livermore's path, but the loanee fires over from 12 yards. Never looked like scoring from what was a good position to test Ruddy.
    • 14' Brady skips away from Whittaker but his cross is far too deep.
    • 13' Garrido swings a free-kick into the box but Hull get it clear.
    • 11' Hull giving away lots of petty fouls at the moment. Doing what they can to disrupt Norwich's rhythm.
    • 10' It must be said Norwich are definitely on top here. Hull very tentative at the moment.
    • 9' Very good effort for Norwich again. Redmond finds space 25 yards from goal and drives at the Hull defence before letting fly from 25 yards - but McGregor makes a flying save to his right.
    • 7' Chance for Norwich as Fer drills a low ball across the face of goal. It almost finds Van Wolfswinkel at the far post, but Hull are able to clear.
    • 6' Nowich look bright here, they are keeping the KC Stadium very quiet.
    • 5' Hull chance but Brady's free-kick from the right is too close and Ruddy claims.
    • 4' Norwich are playing in white shirts and black shorts today, by the way.
    • 3' First chance of the game falls to Norwich! Whittaker crosses first time from the right but Fer nods just wide. Very close, and a very good early chance for the Canaries.
    • 2' Hull have starter the stronger here. Huddlestone seeing plenty of the ball in the middle of the park.
    • 1' KICK OFF. We are underway.
    • 14.55 The players are coming out at the KC Stadium, which means we are just a few minutes away from kick off. You can tweet me throughout the match @mjdasilva
    • 14.50 A few stats for you.... Norwich enjoyed just 33% of possession in their opening game against Everton. Only in five of their 38 Premier League games in 2012/13 did they have lower than this in a match... No side kept more clean sheets at home in the Championship last season than Hull City (10).... No Championship player made more assists in 2012/13 than Hull’s Robbie Brady (11).
    • 14.45 Chris Hughton: "We are making assessments of the whole squad. We have brought in eight players now but we have had more go the other way so we have to get the balances right. We have to feel everyone within the squad can give us that competition. If we feel after the (transfer) window it is right for certain individuals who haven’t figured as much to go out on loan then we have that opportunity."
    • 14.40 Hull City boss Steve Bruce: "We all know who is going to be in the top six but Norwich and Southampton are doing their best to try and bridge that gap if they can. Make no mistake, with the resources that these clubs have got, the squads they've got, it is very, very difficult for us all to try to compete. But clubs like Norwich, Southampton and West Brom have invested a hell of a lot of money."
    • 14.35 Norwich's new Swedish signing Johan Elmander could feature if international clearance comes through in time, while Dutch central midfielder Leroy Fer also returns after missing the season's first league match against Everton through suspension.
    • 14.30 Norwich are without midfielder Elliott Bennett for "several months", according to manager Chris Hughton, after he underwent surgery in midweek on a cruciate ligament injury. Robert Snodgrass is on the bench after recovering from a groin problem. Striker Gary Hooper is still out (shin) while defender Sebastien Bassong and midfielder Anthony Pilkington remain out.
    • 14.25 New signings Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore make their first starts for Hull City when Norwich visit the KC Stadium. The midfield pair joined from Tottenham last week and made impressive impacts as substitutes in the defeat against Chelsea. Republic of Ireland international Stephen Quinn (hamstring) misses out.
