SUMMARY: Hull City 0-2 Nottingham Forest

Hull City were undone in three second half minutes by Nottingham Forest, that duly brought the curtain down a three match unbeaten run for the Tigers. And with results elsewhere going against the home side, City slipped one place in the table to second from bottom.

Forced out by Forest...

The form of both these sides going into the game was good and in some ways cancelled each other out. Forest certainly had the lions share of possession and chances in the first half, but failed to get shots on target to trouble Marshall in the home goal. City had a flurry of pressure that brought about a series of corners, but the Tigers also struggled to test Pantillimon on the visiting goal. Campbell appeared to be fouled in the box, during one out-swinger, but the referee remained unmoved despite protests and the half ended 0-0.

A tactical switch from Adkins saw a much more solid looking City reining in their guests, as the Tigers began the second period on the front foot. Yet, a horrid sliced clearance allowed Grabben to net for Forest in the 61st minute - and just three minutes later, deflected shot from Lolley doubled the advantage to effectively kill off City's challenge for points.
