SUMMARY: Queens Park Rangers 2-3 Hull City

Rarely have Hull City looked so comfortable on the road, but this Saturday - despite Queens Park Rangers being just three points outside the play-offs and in excellent form - the Tigers turned on the style to put the Hoops to the sword and duly climb out of the relegation zone in doing so.

No drama at QPR for City!

City got off to a dream start with Campbell’s neat lay-off allowing Bowen to run in on goal and fire in at the near post on 6 minutes. Matters took a sharp upturn for the Tigers when Henriksen flicked in a corner on 22 minutes, as the visitors continued to look much the better of the two teams. Yet the advantage was cut almost immediately by Wszolek two minutes later. However, the Tigers stood firm to take a 1-2 half time lead.

The second period saw City continue in the ascendancy and appearing remarkably comfortable for a visiting team attempting glean a maximum against a side on a 9 match unbeaten run. Reward came once more for the Tigers when Bowen added a third on 69 minutes. The young winger missed a glorious chance for a hat-trick shortly after - and in typical City style - Freeman netted for the hosts deep into stoppage time to set up a nervy finish. The Tigers held on and three points lifted Hull City out of the relegation zone to 19th.
