SUMMARY: Hull City 1-1 Bristol City

A fitting send off to local hero Peter Skipper was the prelude to what turned out to be an irrelevant match in the race for the top six, given results elsewhere. Both teams put in spirited displays to mark the season finale, but ultimately, pride proved to be the only prize on offer for both these sides.

With little surprise, Bristol City made much of the running, desperate to get the win that might keep their play-off hopes alive. But the Tigers looked dangerous on the counter-attack and promised to give the Robins a game, rather than roll over. The visitors created the better chances, hitting the post and shamefully heading over from close range when the goal was gaping - and appearing easier to score. Grosicki, Campbell and Bowen with a free-kick came closest for the hosts, as the teams trooped off 0-0 at the break.

But the home team upped their tempo and ten minutes after the restart, Grosicki danced down the left, his cross was half cleared and Irvine following up lashed in an unerring finish low into the far corner to put Hull City 1-0 up. Bristol responded - and controversially had a goal chalked - after the officials held consultation. Yet, in farcical fashion, a second effort from the visitors suffered the opposite fate, as this time, the officials concluded an injury time own goal off Henriksen should indeed stand to finish the match at 1-1.
