Steve Bruce didn’t hesitate to introduce the loaned-Uruguayan attacking midfielder Gaston Ramirez in place of Stephen Quinn in the 30th minute to help his teammates push the game forward as they were under pressure from the Swans.

Unfortunately for the Tigers, French international Bafetimbi Gomis doubled the score for the home team with a superb volley, after Hull City defender Michael Dawson’s initial headed-clearance.

The second half kicked off with no changes for either side at the break. With only 4 minutes into the second half, the Tigers succeeded in pulling one back as McShane scored from close range after a great delivery from Brady’s set piece.

Hull City looked dangerous on the pitch throughout the second half, but all their attempts didn’t make their way into Fabianski’s net.

It got more complicated for the visitors as Gomis struck again with his 2nd goal of the game and the team’s 3rd of the afternoon, after a great run before chipping over McGregor, restoring the score to a two-goal deficit and marking his 9th goal of the season for Swansea City.

Hull City remain in the 15th position in the EPL table with 28 points from 31 matches, leaving them just three points ahead of QPR and Burnley in the relegation zone.
