Hull City narrowly lose at home to Burnley

Burnley got relegated back to the Championship despite beating Ahmed Elmohamady’s Hull City at the KC stadium 1-0.

Despite losing their last game, both managers named an unchanged XI.

The Tigers found themselves in the relegation zone before the kickoff whistle as Sunderland beat Everton earlier. Making matters worse, defeat meant that Bruce’s men will have to collect two points from their final two games of the season.

Hull City looked more dangerous in the first half. Brady’s cross was headed narrowly by Egyptian international Ahmed Elmohamdy. A few minutes later, another header threatened the visitors through Paul McShane.

Robbie Brady came very close to scoring, his 25-yard free-kick rattled the bar.

Both sides came out of the tunnel in the second half determined to win all three points with Huddlestone and Batnes taking the initiative as the first had a shot saved by Heaton while the latter’s overhead kick went wide.

Hull City’s boss Steve Bruce brought on Nikica Jelavic who returned from a knee injury, in an attempt to push for the win and switched to a 4-4-2 style of play in the process, however, Ings registered his name on the scoresheet after the hosts failed to clear a corner.

Hull came close to scoring again through substitute Abel Hernandez. The 24-year-old attempted a back-heel shot that the keeper stopped easily.

Hull will hope they can avoid following Sean Dyche’s side but the Tigers have a trip to Tottenham and host Manchester United on the final day in an effort to save their season.
