SUMMARY: Hull City 0-2 Cardiff City

It really was a disappointing day for the Tigers in their last home match of the Championship season. Yes, safety from relegation was assured, but a lacklustre performance was the final act on home soil from the hosts - as visiting, promotion chasing Cardiff City, waltzed off with a relatively easy win, despite the pressure of the prize they are going for.

What a whimper...

In fairness, Hull City made a reasonable fist of matters - until Cardiff scored. Morrison was all alone at close range to nod in the opening goal from a corner in the 32nd minute. The hosts melted away, almost giving up, resigned to their impending fate. It was not pretty viewing - and the 0-1 half time scoreline couldn't really be argued with.

Cardiff shored up, content to see what Hull City could throw at them in the second half. It wasn't a great deal - and the game meandered on in a frustrating and aimless manner, the home team seemingly unable to seize on the visible tension showing from the visitors. Flirting interest in a penalty claim arrived when Campbell appeared to be tripped, but the cutting edge was lacking. Pressed into trying to push for a draw, the hosts were caught on the break in the 80th minute as Morrison converted a second for Cardiff to seal victory.

The heart and soul of this club has been ripped out, chewed up and spewed all across the Circle by our negligent owners - proof if it was ever needed was evident in abundance, as the traditional last lap of the season was miserably attended by the remaining few. All that's left is the last parachute payment to cash in - and we all know it - then... Allam OUT.
