SUMMARY: Hull City 2-0 Ipswich Town

Starvation of points on home soil has been an unwanted famine in this part of the country, but this Saturday, Hull City tasted the sweet taste of victory in their home stadium with a welcome win over beleaguered Ipswich Town - spiralling the visitors to the foot of the Championship table in the process.

A win! At home! Yay!

Good intent was shown by the Tigers from the off and their rewards came early as Bowen seized on a poor pass back to squeeze the ball home on 4 minutes when running at goal. City kept up the pressure, but both sides looked vulnerable at the back - particularly under set pieces. Campbell's endeavour deserved a goal to add to the hosts' tally, but none was forthcoming, as Adkins gave his half time team talk just one goal to the good.

Although City weren't at their sparkling best by any stretch, Ipswich were a poor side. A poor side that at least made a slightly improved effort in the second period but rarely threatening the home goal. Bowen continually punctured the left side of the visiting defence, but missed three glorious chances to seal the match for the Tigers. Instead, substitute Irivine, showed the young winger the way to a second City goal, demonstrating good strength and poise to roll in and double the advantage, duly cementing all the points in the final minute.
