West Brom had the better of play early, though Tony Pulis had his side set-up to defend.

For Hull, a 13th minute free kick saw dangerous Robert Snodgrass force Ben Foster into a diving save. Then Michael Dawson hammered a Snodgrass corner wide of the far post.

Snodgrass put Hull ahead with a first away goal in two months, sliding past Claudio Yacob to poke Ahmed Elmohamady‘s cross past Foster. 1-0.

Hull could’ve had a two-goal lead on several occasions were it not for Foster. Some quality work from West Brom’s Matty Phillips was collected by David Marshall just before half.

Brunt equalized just over three minutes into the second frame, powering Phillips header through the hands of a stunned Marshall.

And McAuley made it 2-1 by rising over the Hull defense to head just over the line for a goal awarded via Goal Decision System. It was another corner, with Phillips provided another assist.

Morrison piled the misery on the Tigers when he first-timed a mishit shot by Salomon Rondon behind Marshall. Woof.
