Andy Todd’s second-string slipped to a narrow 2-1 defeat against a strong Hull City XI in a Central League (East Division) clash at North Ferriby United tonight.
On a cold night in Humberside, Ben Hutchinson netted the opener after just seven minutes, but the hosts were quickly back on level terms thanks to midfielder Tom Cairney.
The Tigers gradually began to dominate as the first period progressed and went ahead shortly before half-time through £2,600,000 frontman Nick Proschwitz.
Hull remained resolute in what proved to be an intriguing second period, as they collected all three points and maintained their 100% record in the division.
Stags: Redmond, Thompson, Sutton, Geohaghon, Tafazolli, Clements, Briscoe, Tolley, Wright, Hutchinson, Todd. Sub: Pilkington.
