Result: Sam Clucas, Chuba Akpom goals give Hull City opening-day win over Huddersfield

Goals from Sam Clucas and Chuba Akpom give Hull City a 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town.

Goals from debutants Sam Clucas and Chuba Akpom gave Hull City a 2-0 victory over Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town this afternoon.

The game's first chance fell to Huddersfield's Harry Bunn, who picked up Tommy Smith's pass before shooting over the bar.

Isaac Hayden tried to create a chance for the hosts after the half-hour mark, but Nikica Jelavic could not connect with a cross.

Hull City took the lead on 39 minutes, when debutant Clucas scored from close range after his initial shot was saved by Alex Smithies.

Huddersfield came close to an equaliser soon after half time when Jacob Butterfield found Jason Davidson, but the Australian volleyed over the bar.

The hosts doubled their advantage on 72 minutes, when on-loan Chuba Akpom finished from inside the box.

Mark Hudson almost found a consolation goal for the visitors, but his header from a corner went over the bar, before Nahki Wells shot high on 95 minutes.
