Campbell With The Winner (2018)
Fraizer Campbell was on target as Hull City recorded a 1-0 victory over promotion-hopefuls West Bromwich Albion.
Campbell struck seven minutes before the break as Nigel Adkins’ side made it back-to-back wins for the first time in 2018/19, and it was a thoroughly deserved three points as the Tigers continued to show signs of improvement after a difficult start to the campaign.
It was the home side that threatened first as Jarrod Bowen saw a far post header kept out by a combination of goalkeeper Sam Johnstone and the crossbar, and Kamil Grosicki also curled an early effort over as Adkins’ men set their stall out.
Jay Rodriguez volleyed a rare Albion chance wide before the game’s defining moment arrived in the 38th minute. Bowen’s cross from the right was headed against the crossbar by Jackson Irvine, but Campbell was in the right place to snap up the rebound for 1-0.
Grosicki saw a half-volley kept out by Johnstone after the break, while David Marshall made his only real save of note with just seconds remaining as he kept out Ahmed Hegazy’s header to preserve the three points.
Rosenior Inspires Victory Over Baggies (2014)
Liam Rosenior scored a rare goal as Hull City comfortably saw off the challenge of West Bromwich Albion at the KCOM Stadium.
The Tigers inflicted the damage during six first half minutes as they took control of the game, with the first goal coming in the 31st minute when referee Chris Foy awarded a penalty following Craig Dawson’s foul on Shane Long.
Nikica Jelavic saw his spot kick saved by Ben Foster, but Rosenior was the unlikely first man to follow up and he nodded in the rebound from close range to claim his first goal for more than four years.
A second goal soon arrived as Jake Livermore’s cross was flicked on by Curtis Davies for Long to find the net against his former club and although there were chances to make the scoreline even more emphatic after the break, it was job done for Steve Bruce’s side.
Jenkinson Strikes To Damage Baggies’ Promotion Hopes (1992)
Leigh Jenkinson scored the only goal of the game to give Hull City a 1-0 win against West Bromwich Albion at Boothferry Park and put a huge dent in Albion’s hopes of promotion from the old third division.
Jenkinson proved too quick and strong for the Baggies’ back line as he gave the Tigers an early lead, and the speedy winger almost scored again soon after but his effort came back off the post.
Gary Strodder was denied an equaliser by an excellent save from Alan Fettis, but the better chances continued to go the home side’s way and man-of-the-match Jenkinson was denied by visiting goalkeeper Stuart Naylor before again hitting an upright late on.
