Hull City defender Recce Burke then equalised for his team with one minute left on the clock only for the league leaders to concede the winning goal of the game in added courtesy CJ Hamilton. The late goal from CJ Hamilton condemned Hull City to a second successive league defeat and also extend their winless run to three games in League One. On the other hand, Blackpool are gradually moving up the table with the recent run of good results. They are without defeat in four league games.
