SUMMARY: Hull City 4-0 Bolton Wanderers

After a trying week that saw yet another star player leave the club and the injury crisis within the camp deepen - that saw our academy players facing Doncaster in the League Cup - a resounding 4-0 victory on home soil ahead of the international break, was exactly the tonic required for manager Leonid Slutsky and all those with Hull City interests.

Bolton battered by Bowen

City were pressed into pretty much naming a team from the only fit first teamers on hand, but you wouldn't know it given the way the Tigers started, as they tore into Bolton from the off. Diomande kicked off the rout in the 13th minute when firing into the roof of the net from close range. The impressive Bowen headed back across goal to double the advantage on 19 minutes, before Kamil Grosicki carved through a fragile visiting defence to roll the ball into the bottom corner after a pacy run.

The Tigers were battering Bolton and good value for their 3-0 lead, despite their heavily depleted squad - and perhaps predictably, the visitors shored up after the break, while the Tigers were content to take their foot off the gas a little. However, boss Leonid Slutsky introduced late signings Stephen Kingsley and Jon Toral for their Tiger debuts - and the Russian was rewarded as the night was completed in perfect fashion when Bowen's calm finish in the 88th minute sealed a comprehensive and well deserved win.
