Report: West Brom v Hull

Written by HullCityJournals

An expected boring trip to the Hawthorns on Monday actually left an explosion between the Hull fans who argued amongst themselves. Various groups stating and calling for heads, like Marshall, Phelan and the Allam’s. Mbokani and Elmohamady also played their last games before jetting off to the AFCON cup.

Snodgrass, who scored a free-kick on Friday night against Everton had another chance to put in another one after he was brought down 10 yards out from the box. The ball went over the wall and dipped down for Foster to collect the ball, but with a little bit of difficulty.

20 minutes in, Livermore received the ball at the half way line on the left-hand side. The midfielder found Elmohamady with a delicious, sumptuous ball down to the opposite by-line. The winger who will join Egypt later on this week took a first touch before whipping in a half-volleyed cross which was aimed for the penalty spot. The away sides top scorer beat his marker to the ball, stretching out his left leg to stab it home to the bottom left corner.

Albion 0-1 Hull.

The visitors from up North stayed on top but failed to capitalise whilst having a lot of chances, Diomande not being able to convert the majority of chances. A second-half looked almost impossible for the tigers to improve on. West Brom’s second half instructions were clear as they turned their performance up a notch or two, and Hull were unable to stop them.

Phillips forced a corner from Maguire (which looked as though it came off the winger himself). The home sides attacker swung in a very deep cross from the left side to the back post where Brunt was eagerly waiting behind a fellow team-mate where the ball flew over to him and planted a header into the roof of the net. It wasn’t even surprising anymore for this club who are in a rut with such heartless owners.

Albion 1-1 Hull.

A cross from the previous goal-scorer looked to be going over the bar, but Marshall had to tip it over just to make sure. Phillips again put in the cross and this time closer to the goal keeper. Captain MaCauley (who scored in the reverse fixture at the KCOM) ran in with pace and powered a header goal-wards directly onto the body of Clucas who stood on the line, or should I say behind it? A failed attempt of a clearance off the line left 10 seconds of uncertainty until Clattenburg confirmed the goal.

Albion 2-1 Hull.

10 minutes after a shocking piece of defending from Davies allowed Phillips to get past him far too easily down that right hand side. He then span a low ball in for Rondon to attempt to have a shot, however the ball bounced off him and dropped into the path of Morrison who hit a scuffed shot and luckily rolled into the left corner of the net.

Albion 3-1 Hull.

It will be interesting to see how Hull do without their International players during the AFCON cup, surely they can’t do too much worse considering it’s only Elmo and Mbokani.
