SUMMARY: Bolton Wanderers 0-1 Hull City

Hull City ended their barren winless spell to secure a valuable three points on the road against out of sorts Bolton Wanderers. The victory proved crucial as results elsewhere were less favourable - and at least left the Tigers in touching distance of their relegation rivals.

Not since 1935...



Bolton set the early pace, but City’s first real attack produced a goal when Campbell nutmegged the keeper from close range on 7 minutes. Campbell again fired just wide shortly after, before an Irvine break put the visitors three on two, but Grosicki blazed the shot wide when fed in. Still a 0-1 lead at the break was a rare treat for the Tigers.

City opted to counter in the second half – and the plan looked effective as Bolton attempted to get back on terms. Grosicki spurned a glorious chance from a cut-back to double the advantage, before Irvine wasted another good chance with a wayward pass. The Tigers underwent some late pressure without really being tested - and this time actually survived - to claim a valuable and deserved 0-1 away win, a first at Bolton since 1935.

Kudos to regular reader Richard, who called it.
