Guzan Gets First Win for Hull City

Well that didn't take long. After a 1-0 loss to Leicester City on January 1st, Brad Guzan and Hull City got a road win at Portsmouth 3-2. The Tigers now sit at 15th in the table of the Championship and six points off of the playoff to gain promotion to the Premier League.

Hull City struck first in the 21st minute with a converted penalty from Jimmy Bullard. Portsmouth equalized in the 57th minute from a penalty by Liam Lawrence. Then two of Hull City's subs, Matt Fryatt scored on a break away goal in the 69th minute, followed by a Nick Barnby goal in the 72nd minute. Portsmouth would get a goal back off a Greg Halford header, but Pompey couldn't equalize in the final minutes.

Guzan played a solid game with many saves and brilliant distribution that would gain Hull City multiple advantages and in one case a free kick. Maybe the most important save of the match was in stoppage time when a Joel Ward shot was denied by the American International. Hull City's next match is on Saturday January 8 against Wigan in FA Cup play.
