Hull's 6th straight loss after captain's own goal at Watford

WATFORD, England (AP) " Hull captain Michael Dawson's late own goal handed Watford a 1-0 victory on Saturday and condemned his side to a sixth successive English Premier League loss.

Hull headed into the game with an aggregate scoreline of 19-3 from its five losses but Mike Phelan's side was looking more resolute at Vicarage Road until Dawson's inadvertent intervention in the 82nd minute. Nordin Amrabat's shot ricocheted off Dawson and past goalkeeper David Marshall.

While Watford is flying high in seventh place, Hull remains in the bottom three having not taken a point since a draw at Burnley on Sept. 10.
