Blackburn Rovers moved back into second place in the Championship after a controlled performance against Hull City secured a fourth win in a row.

Sammie Szmodic’s classy finish early in the first half was enough as Rovers comfortably kept a disappointing Tigers side at bay.

Top scorer Ben Brereton Diaz and Sam Gallagher were denied further goals after the break by smart stops from Nathan Baxter.

Hull never threatened to repeat their win over Rovers in last season’s corresponding fixture in January – after owner Acun Ilicali completed his takeover – and did not have an effort on target all afternoon as Jacob Greaves and Dimitrios Pelkas missed the target with free headers.[ondingfixtureinJanuary-afterownerAcunIlicaliccompletehistakeover-failingtoproduceaneffortontargetallafternoonasJacobGreavesandDimitriosPelkasmissedthetargetwithfreeheaders[ondingfixtureinJanuary-afterownerAcunIlicalicompletedhistakeover-failingtoproduceaneffortontargetallafternoonasJacobGreavesandDimitriosPelkasmissedthetargetwithfreeheaders

Rovers’ 11th win of the season moves them back to second, three points ahead of Queens Park Rangers, and two points behind leaders Burnley.
