Hull claim spoils in relegation shoot-out

The Tigers produced arguably their bets performance of the season to move out of the bottom three thanks to goals from Lazar Markovic, Oumar Niasse, Abel Hernandez and Harry Maguire.

The frantic pace dropped after the interval but Hull held the upper hand and sealed the contest when captain Harry Maguire headed home his first Premier League goal to give the Yorkshire club a fifth win in six home games under manager Marco Silva.

Hull City's Abel Hernandez celebrates scoring his side's third goal of the game.

All five of Hull's wins under Silva have come at the KCOM Stadium, and Dawson has praised the impact the Portuguese coach has had on the club.

The Teessiders ended up shipping four goals to their relegation rivals at the KCOM Stadium and now sit in 19th position - seven points off the final position of safety. Grosicki popped up on the right wing to collect a fine pass from Harry Maguire and deliver a lovely ball across the face of goal to Hernandez who did the rest at the far post.

The Tigers equalised in the 14th minute through Markovic, who slammed the ball home from close range after the visitors had failed to clear Niasse's flick-on from Andrew Robertson's cross.

Kieron Pollard was dismissed for 27 (17 balls; 3x4; 1x6) in the penultimate over by Stokes for the bowler's first IPL wicket. Then came the wickets which stopped the MI momentum a little bit, with Tahir picking up three wickets in two overs.

Traore and Negredo combined again as Boro swarmed back on to the offensive and the latter's shot on the turn was kept out by Hull keeper Eldin Jakupovic before the home side swept into a 3-1 lead. "The players remarked on the noise they made in the far corner".

The visitors did get one back in controversial circumstances in time added-on at the end of the first-half.

Hernandez side-footed a free-kick from the edge of the area narrowly wide, but Hull completed the turnaround in the 27th minute. Middlesbrough: Victor Valdes 6, Antonio Barragan 5, Daniel Ayala 6, Ben Gibson 6, James Husband 5, Adama Traore 7, Adam Clayton 6, Marten de Roon 7, Stewart Downing 6, Alvaro Negredo 7, Rudy Gestede 6.

Referee Michael Oliver consulted with his assistant and to the disbelief of Hull's players and fans he allowed the goal to stand.

But Hull gave themselves some much-needed breathing space and restored their two-goal cushion in the 70th minute when Maguire stole in unmarked at the far post to head home Robertson's curling cross.
