SUMMARY: Brentford 1-1 Hull City

Hull City left London with a modicum of pride following their final fixture of the season, but the match itself was a largely forgettable affair, given both teams had very little to play for. Not that it put off the visiting fans, who were in raucous form throughout the match.

Goodbye... farewell...

City made a sluggish start to their final match of the season and were soon punished as a 12th minute header set the visitors on to the back foot. Canos converting a simple chance for Brentford. The Tigers laboured in the heat with only Wilson’s weak effort on goal being their one shot on target. Yet, from nothing, deep in first half stoppage time, Wilson’s cross found Bowen lurking at the back stick to stab to ball home and level matters 1-1.

The Tigers could’ve had a dream start to the second period when Campbell was tripped in the box by the home keeper. Wilson stepped up for penalty duties, but saw his spot kick saved by Daniels on the hour mark. That was the best chance of the half for either team, as the game largely petered out, in typical end of season fashion. All that was left to wonder was; just how many of the missing first team personnel and those taking the field today will actually be here next season? CI's guess is; not many.

And as if the Allams will do anything about it, other than bugger up the summer transfer window as usual, while trousering the last £19m parachute payment.
