Hull City fans react to performance of Mallik Wilks during Leeds win

The forward was in great form as the Tigers beat the Premier League newcomers.

Hull City enjoyed a night to remember as they knocked Leeds United out of the Carabao Cup at Elland Road, with Mallik Wilks getting one over his former club.

The Tigers roared into a lead when the 21-year-old forward scored after just five minutes and had looked set for a comfortable victory.

Leeds came into life late on, however, and a late Ezgjan Alioski goal ensured a penalty shootout would decide the contest.

Hull stood firm though and after a 9-8 win on penalties will now face West Ham at the London Stadium in round three of the competition.

Wilks was the man of the hour though and he would have relished the chance to get one over his former club.

The youngster left Elland Road in the summer of 2019 to join Barnsley, playing just once for the first-team at Leeds.

Wilks spent six months at the Tykes before moving to Hull in January and making the move permanent in the summer.

Last season he fired six goals across spells at the two clubs and he’ll be hoping to take League One by storm this season.

Here is a selection of Tweets from the Hull fanbase after a stunning Wilks performance.
