Hull City fell to their eighth defeat of the season last night, losing at home to fellow strugglers Peterborough United.
With both sides struggling for form since winning promotion from League One last season, this game already felt very important with a big three points at stake.
But it was Posh who left the KCOM Stadium with a big win, with Jack Taylor opening the scoring after finding the net with a sublime finish from distance.
Josh Magennis did find a leveller before half-time, finding himself unmarked at the back post and heading in to make it 1-1.
But Siriki Dembele found a late winner for Posh after Magennis had missed a penalty, latching onto Jorge Grant’s through ball and chipping Matt Ingram.
Quiz: Did these 25 Hull City transfers actually happen?
Hull now sit 22nd in the Championship having won only two of their opening 13 games in the league this season, with the pressure building on Grant McCann.
Boos rang out at full-time, and during the game, there were even chants for Steve Bruce, who is out of work having left Newcastle United yesterday.
Bruce is a popular man amongst Hull supporters, winning promotion to the Premier League twice with the Tigers and taking them to the FA Cup final in 2014.
Here, we take a look at Hull fans’ reactions to the chants…
To go in defence?

I don’t know what was worse tonight…our finishing,the result,the”Steve Bruce” chants or the Magennis penalty which,by the way,has just joined Seb Larsson’s penalty at Derby in geo-stationary orbit.

I don't want to start getting slightly narky about the gathering momentum of "Bruce In", so it's best that you all accept it isn't going to happen, and quickly #hcafc
