Hull City kept pace with leaders Middlesbrough with a crushing 6-0 win over Charlton, as Abel Hernandez scored a first-half hat-trick.

Hull went into the game in second place on the back of three wins in a row in all competitions, while Charlton just suffered an embarrassing 5-0 defeat at the hands of Huddersfield, for which Charlton’s captain Johnnie Jackson had promised to reimburse the travelling fans.

Abel Hernandez opened the scoring after nine minutes after using his speed to race clear of the Charlton defence and finished well past Henderson.

Hernandez doubled his and Hull’s account seven minutes later with a fantastic strike from outside the box.

Things went from bad to worse for Charlton as young winger Sam Clucas found Robert Snodgrass, who struck past Henderson to make it 3-0 with a signature curling effort.

Uruguay international Abel Hernandez completed his hat-trick just before half time after Clucas and Robertson combined well on the left wing before providing an easy finish for Hernandez.

Ten minutes into the second half, Senegalese playmaker Mohamed Diame added his name to the scoresheet with a good finish, putting the game beyond any doubt.

In the 80th minute Arsenal loanee Isaac Hayden had an ambitious shot from outside the box deflected off a Charlton defender, on a day to forget for Jose Riga who made his second debut as Charlton manager after interim manager Karel Fraeye was sacked following a poor run of results capped off by the midweek loss to Huddersfield.

winger didn’t feature in Saturday’s match as he watched Hull City thrash Charlton from the bench.

The gameweek 27 results put Hull two points off the top spot, as leaders Middlesbrough lost 1-0 away at Bristol City and Derby County suffered a shock 3-0 loss at home to Birmingham.
