RECAP: MIDWEEK ENGLISH ACTION
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
ANDREW VORCE - Thursday, April 22, 2010
Jozy Altidore was a second half sub as Hull City were unable to cope with Aston Villa in limited midweek English action.

Hull 0 - 2 Aston Villa

Brad Friedel was rarely tested by Jozy Altidore's Hull City as Villa claimed a vital win in their quest for fourth place, while Hull stutter in 18th.

Terrible Hull defending allowed Gabriel Agbonlahor to open up the scoring just 14 minutes in.

None of the defenders were able to properly clear the ball, with the final attempt ricocheting off of John Carew and to Agbonlahor, who produced a pinpoint shot past Matt Duke and two players on the line in to the top corner.

Hull shot themselves in the foot when Carew sprung a 60 yard counter attack. The big front man squared it wide for Milner, who was brought down inside the box by George Boateng. Milner stepped up to add another goal to his belt, sending Duke the wrong way.

Altidore came on in the 54th minute, but was unable to produce against his countryman. Tom Cairney and Craig Fagan were booked for Hull, while Milner and Stiliyan Petrov were booked for Villa. Hull next face Sunderland at home, while Villa take on Birmingham.

Notes

Jay DeMerit was out with a minor injury as Watford fell 1-0 at Queen's Park Rangers.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
