SUMMARY: Hull City 1-0 West Bromwich Albion

For the first time since April, Hull City recorded back-to-back victories to claim another valuable three points in their quest to escape the Championship drop zone. Following a 0-1 win at Bolton last weekend, the Tigers impressed against high-flying, if somewhat out-of-sorts West Bromwich Albion, to secure a second successive clean sheet and a 1-0 scoreline.

Baggies battered and beaten

An incredible opening saw City create three excellent chances in the opening five minutes of the match, Grosicki twice spurned good opportunities while Jarrod Bowen grazed the face of the bar with a far post header. Campbell was tireless up front, but rocked back too far when well placed to blaze over. The Baggies did nothing to trouble Marshall in goal, looking well below par given the quality on show - and the Tigers got their deserved half time lead when a short corner saw Irvine crash the crossbar, before Campbell followed in.

A good five minutes before the second period began, the visitors were sent packing onto the field, but it failed to have the desired effect as a previously free-scoring West Brom side looked positively devoid of attacking potency. Credit to Adkins and City for nullifying the visitors threat, as the hosts continued to look the most likely to score - Grosicki and Campbell again going close. But with relative comfort, the Tigers held firm and claimed a critical three points that brought the pack above the dotted line ever closer.
