Guzan Gets First Win for Hull City
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.
