SUMMARY: Ipswich Town 0-3 Hull City

Hull City reserved their best away performance of the season for the re-arranged clash with Ipswich Town - scotched 10 days earlier due to snow and ice - to record back-to-back victories for the first time this season, whilst pulling further away from the Championship relegation places.

Ipswich opened proceedings by clattering City's post early doors, but the Tigers were enjoying most of the match and appearing more accomplished. The endeavour shown by the visitors was rewarded on 18 minutes when Henriksen drilled a low shot from outside the box to put Hull City 0-1 up. The Tigers kept up the pressure and continued to cause the hosts problems. On 40 minutes, home boss Mick McCarthy saw four swift passes from a goal kick unpick his entire side, as Wilson calmly rolled in to put City 0-2 up at the break.

You could be forgiven for expecting a fierce backlash from Ipswich, yet that notion was quashed just two minutes after the restart. Bowen cut in from his wing, scampered to the near post and fired in to put Hull City into an unassailable 0-3 lead. Understandably, the intensity waned somewhat from the Tigers, but City remained in control and preserved a welcome clean sheet, to pull themselves 9 points clear of the relegation zone.
