SUMMARY: Burton Albion 0-5 Hull City

Hull City reserved their best away performance of the season for their trip to Burton Albion and utterly dominated proceedings, with a controlled and clinical display that produced five unanswered goals, culminating in a huge 10 point gap opening up between the Tigers and the Championship trapdoor, with just four games remaining.

Gone for a Burton as the Brewers droop at home to Hull City

Nigel Adkins' side had taken huge pressure off this vital trip to the Pirelli Stadium to face fellow strugglers Burton Albion, by thrashing QPR 4-0 on Saturday. And City picked up, precisely where they had left off, when Wilson cut in from his wing to open the scoring for the visitors just 5 minutes in. Grosicki got in on the act from the opposite wing on 33 minutes to double the advantage, as a flat looking home team simply wilted under the black and amber onslaught.

Burton rallied come the second period, but it was fleeting and frankly, too little, too late. Wilson was tripped in the box and Meyler converted the penalty in emphatic style to make it 0-3 on 63 minutes, before Grosicki added his second and City's fourth on 85 minutes - which could've been a hat-trick goal had the Polish winger not struck the post when well placed earlier. Keane came off the bench to convert a Tomori cross deep in stoppage time - and this 0-5 away victory signalled Hull City's biggest in the league for 103 years.

Although not mathematically safe from Championship relegation, realistically, given results elsewhere, the realists now know Hull City will be remaining in the second tier for another season.
