To mark the debut of this season’s Third Kit, we’ve taken a look back at five memorable victories wearing blue away shirts, starting with a victory at Saturday’s destination, Oakwell, back in the 2004/05 campaign…
1-2 vs Barnsley, August 2004
Michael Keane came off the bench to grab a late winner at Barnsley. The home side had taken the lead early in the first half through Barry Conlon, who rose to head home Chris Shuker’s in-swinging corner. The Tigers levelled when Andy Dawson’s corner found the unmarked Stuart Elliott and he nodded the ball past Barnsley keeper Nick Colgan. And midfielder Keane scored when he cut through the home defence and curled the ball into the top corner just two minutes from time to earn Peter Taylor’s men the victory.
0-4 vs Bournemouth, March 2005
The Tigers claimed their most emphatic away victory of the 2004/05 season with a 4-0 win on the south coast. Ryan France opened the scoring in the 26th minute before Craig Fagan showed his class on the right to provide Stuart Elliott with his 26th goal of the season. Fagan again was the provider as Elliott volleyed home his side’s third before Damien Delaney’s free-kick routine found its way into the far bottom corner as Peter Taylor’s side looked well on their way to promotion.
1-2 vs Bristol City, October 2012
Steve Bruce’s side climbed back into the Championship play-off zone with an away win which left Bristol City rooted in the bottom three. Tigers forward Sone Aluko fired in an early opener after combining superbly with Jay Simpson, before Steven Davies smashed the hosts level. However, calamitous defending allowed Stephen Quinn to poke in Hull’s winner with the help of a Cole Skuse deflection.
2-3 vs Newcastle United, September 2013
Sone Aluko’s stunning volley gave the Tigers victory over Newcastle in a highly entertaining encounter. Loic Remy gave the hosts the lead when he headed home from Papiss Cisse’s miscued shot at the back post. Robbie Brady levelled with a low effort before Remy scored his second when Yohan Cabaye’s effort fell into his path. Brady’s free-kick was glanced in by Ahmed Elmohamady shortly after the restart to level matters again before Aluko won it with a superb finish from 18 yards.
0-4 vs Cardiff City, February 2014
The Tigers took a big step towards Premier League safety by thrashing Cardiff to leave their hosts deep in trouble. Tom Huddlestone’s deflected shot and Nikica Jelavic’s low finish inside the box gave the visitors a 2-0 half-time lead, despite Cardiff enjoying the greater possession. Jelavic headed his second from Liam Rosenior’s cross, with Jake Livermore’s powerful shot capping a fine win. Steve Bruce’s side moved up to 11th in the table, eight points clear of Cardiff in 19th.
