SUMMARY: West Bromwich Albion 3-2 Hull City

A brave effort from the Tigers at West Bromwich Albion ultimately proved fruitless - and surely puts an end to any last lingering hopes of reaching this season's Championship's play-offs. But, the fact City were even in this race at all, is credit to manager Nigel Adkins.

Kane is able!

City turned up with intent - and not just to feel their way into the game, hoping to try and catch the hosts off guard. Indeed, it was a relatively even game, if lacking somewhat in clear cut chances. Bowen volleyed over on the turn with the visitors closest chance of the half, while his opposite wing, had Grosicki slightly over hitting crosses when well placed. With half time looming, Gibbs cushioned a shot back across goal to give the Baggies the lead, leaving the Tigers with much to ponder over the half-time cuppa.

Whatever was said by Adkins worked a treat, as Kane rifled in a shot from outside the box to level matters just three minutes in. Bowen scampered clear to force a good save as the Tigers meant business, dominating the play. Incredibly, even better than the first attempt, it was unlikely hero Kane again, slamming the ball into the far left corner to turn the match around on 59 minutes. Yet, Gayle levelled matters just three minutes later from a corner. And five minutes from time, Gayle pinched it for the hosts, to seal City's fate.

But as we all know, it doesn't change the fact: "West Bromwich Albion, your boiler's from Hull!"
