SUMMARY: Hull City 0-1 Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday led a charmed life at the Circle and waltzed away with all the points with their only shot on target, as City's good form was rudely interrupted. Good to know the billions of fans from the Owls (failed to sell their allocation here for the record) are still ignorant as ever, oblivious to the Wembley boycott - and quite why the home stands are still, yes still all these years on, sparsely populated. Ignorance is bliss, right?

Ignorance is bliss...

The first half saw the Tigers suffering something of a hangover from their back-to-back 4-0 and 0-5 wins against QPR and Burton respectively. Indeed, it was a bitty affair that lacked cohesion, but the visitors broke the deadlock in the 18th minute courtesy of Rhodes. City struggled to piece together any genuine chances of note during the half, but certainly improved after going behind. The closest the hosts came to scoring, was just before the break, when Hernandez was thwarted at the near post.

The visitors shut up shop - not that they threatened much in the first half - and sat in for the long haul. City made all the running, but struggled to fashion good goal scoring chances. Hernandez was thwarted again from close range while trying to get a shot off, then fired over from inside the box as the Tigers pressed. Late on, Hernandez saw what would've been a deserved equaliser chalked off by the linesman's flag after much deliberation, while MacDonald missed an absolute sitter at the death when heading wide to level.

The battle may well be undeservedly lost today, but the relegation war is just about won, all bar the mathematics.
