10-man Hull beats Norwich 1-0 in EPL

Robbie Brady scored from the penalty spot to give Hull a 1-0 win

over Norwich as the newly-promoted club put on an impressive

defensive display to earn its first points in the Premier League on

Saturday.

Playing its first home game back in the top flight since

relegation in 2010, Hull was reduced to 10 men after 27 minutes

when striker Yannick Sagbo was sent off for an off-the-ball

incident.

Brady had converted the winning penalty in the 22nd with a

left-footed shot that sent goalkeeper John Ruddy the wrong way for

his team’s first goal of the season.

About 40 Hull fans protested against a proposed change of the

club’s name to ”Hull City Tigers” before kickoff, brandishing

placards and a banner proclaiming ”a club not a brand”.
