Reserves Finish With Victory


09:30 23rd April 2013


Tigers round off season with a win against Bradford....

Second half goals from Danny Chambers and Danny Emerton ensured that Hull City Reserves concluded their season with a 2-0 victory over Bradford City at North Ferriby on Monday night.

Stephen Clemence made just two changes to the eleven that started the 1-0 win at Hartlepool five days earlier. Sam Topliss and Ben Clappison came into the side with Matty Dixon and Kealan Dillon dropping out.

The opening stages were very even with neither side creating much and it took until the 22nd minute for either side to manage a shot on target, Mark Oxley saving with his legs to deny Connor Erangey. The ball was only half cleared but Oxley comfortably saved Scott Brown’s shot from outside the box. 

The Tigers' first shot on target came from James Armstrong but Bantams keeper Stuart Morrison easily saved. 

Dougie Wilson fired well wide and Chambers lifted a good chance high over the bar as the first period ended goalless.

Half Time: Hull City Reserves 0 Bradford City Reserves 0

The second period was as devoid of chances as the first but City finally broke the deadlock in the 65th minute. Emerton did well to release Chambers in the left channel and he cut inside and curled a right foot shot past Morrison and into the bottom corner of the net. 

Armstrong then met an Emerton corner but put his header onto the roof of the net. 

The second goal came in the 77th minute when Calaum Jahraldo-Martin sent Emerton clear and he rounded the keeper and rolled the ball into the empty net. 

The victory meant that the Tigers finished the Central League Eastern Division season with their 100% record in tact.
