SUMMARY: Bristol City 5-5 Hull City

This was in all probability the craziest game of the season, as both Bristol City and Hull City shared TEN goals between them, as it rained goals at Ashton Gate. The point for the hosts probably ends their faint play-off hopes, but the point picked up for the visitors, absolutely guarantees Hull City another season in the second tier.

Just the TEN goal thriller at Ashton Gate,,,

With much at stake at both ends of the table, it was Wilson who broke the deadlock for the Tigers with a wonderful left foot strike that beat Fielding all ends up. Yet, the visitors were pegged back as the match wore on - and the goal that had been threatened duly arrived when Pack fired into the bottom right corner on 37 minutes to level affairs. The Tigers didn't learn from that and just four minutes later the match was spun right around as Diedihou netted just three minutes later to leave a 2-1 scoreline at the break.

The story went from bad to worse for the visitors when Diedihou grabbed his second and Bristol City's third on 53 minutes. But, when all hope seemed lost for the Tigers, Tomori's diving header was spilled by Fielding just three minutes later to put the visitors back in the contest. The respite was short-lived as Reid put the hosts 4-2 up on 64 minutes. Yet, the Tigers wouldn't relent and Wilson made it 4-3 with a freekick on 72 minutes. Incrdible then, off the bench, Hernandez tapped in on 80 minutes to make it 4-4.

But that wasn't the end of the story given the crazy nature of the game. Hull City thought they'd won it when Campbell struck in the 87th minutes to put the visitors 4-5 up, but in the fourth minute of added time, Bryan rescued a point for the Robins to finish this 10 goal encounter with a 5-5 draw.

Yet, astonishingly, as the results trickled in elsewhere, the five goals that Hull City scored on the road that only produced one point for the cause, was precisely the point that absolutely confirms Hull City's Championship status for next season.
