The Tigers won the game 1-0 courtesy of a Hakeeb Adelakun goal in the 10th minute, as they continued their perfect start to the campaign.

This is Docherty’s second crack at the English third tier, after his successful loan stint with Shrewsbury TownΒ during the 2018/19 season.

He will be fighting it out at the top end of the division this time around, though, with Hull aiming for automatic promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking.

Former Rangers striker, Ryan Hardie, played 76 minutes for the opposition, having joined Plymouth for a second consecutive loan spell from Blackpool in August.
