SUMMARY: Ipswich Town 0-2 Hull City

The Tigers kept alive their slim top six ambitions with a welcome and well deserved away victory at bottom club Ipswich Town. Kamil Grosicki was the hero for the visitors with a goal in each half to prolong City's play-off ambitions - and prolong Ipswich's all but certain relegation pain in the process.

Hull City recorded only their second league double of the season with a lovely worked goal in the 14th minute. A neat dummy foxed the Ipswich defence and Grosicki scampered in to fire back across the face of goal for the opener. Ipswich huffed and puffed, but were dilatory in the final third. Still, the Tigers had to clear two efforts off the line with Marshall stranded to preserve their one goal advantage.

Come the second period, it took the Polish international winger a mere four minutes to double the Tigers's lead. Pretty much a carbon copy of the first goal, the lively wingman skipped in from his wing and fired in low across the goal for his and City's second. Bowen almost added a third seeing his chance snuffed out, while Pugh cracked a post, as Ipswich - for all their possession - lacked quality and a cutting edge to truly threaten getting anything from the game.
