Welcome everyone to the KCom stadium, tonight we are set for a competitive match for both teams! Tonight Hull come in to the game unbeaten in the last 5 home games under Marco Silva, were as Middlesbrough haven’t won for 12 games.
Tonight will be a tough test for both sides tonight as both teams are struggling for survival. Hull has picked up a great bit of form under fairly new boss Marco Silva recently and should be going in to the game with great confidence. The premier league is set for a very crucial match tonight both teams desperate for the 3 points.
After an intense action packed first half, Hull come in at half time with a well deserved 3-2 lead after going 1-0 down just 5 minutes in with a cheeky goal from Middlesbrough’s Negrado sending the borough fans wild, they couldn’t believe it. Borough fans were chanting “WE SCORED A GOAL WE SCORED A GOAL WE SCORED A GOAL”. Hull then brushed this off and set back up, gaining momentum with every attack. There was plenty of action happening on the pitch in the first half with 4 goals in just over half an hour with two of hulls new additions on the score sheet. Markovics 14th minute goal, with was created by Grosiski, brought Hull back in to the game just 9 minutes after conceding. Middlesbrough fans quietened down and Hull were gaining momentum with every minute, scoring a further 2 goals in 19 minutes. One coming from new addition Niasse and Hulls most prolific goal scorer, a real fans favourite, Abel Hernandez . Middlesbrough responded with a goal just before the second half shocking the stadium and the hull players who contested the goal for a clear off side but the decision went Middlesbroughs way and the borough players went into halftime with a bit a more hope for the second half. The Hull fans definitely got their moneys worth with that first half performance.
The finishing score was 4-2 with an unbelievable second half performance from Hull not conceding any goals in the second half.
Hull’s defenders were solid not letting Middlesbrough in at all. Hull’s man of the match (Sam Clucas) played an absolute corker working super hard for his team, running around like a headless chicken all game. Hull finally put the nail in the coffin in the 70th minute with a superbly struck free kick by Hull’s most promising young player Andrew Robertson which was met by a rocket of a header from Harry Maguire sending the tigers out of the bottom 3 for the 1st time since October. Hull’s man of the match later stated “everybody in the team knows their job, even the subs and the team are confident they can build on this perfect week we have had”.
Hull face Manchester City away in their next fixture, a tough ask but confidence is high.
