    Time:90'
    • Hull City
    • West Bromwich Albion
    • 90+4' That's it, full-time, and 2-2 it has ended between Hull and West Brom at the KC Stadium. An enthralling encounter has reached a fair conclusion, with both sides coming away with a hard-earned draw.
    • 90+2' Time is being played out in the middle of the park, and it looks like honours will be even in this match.
    • 90' The fourth official signals four minutes to be added at the end of this second half - all to play for!
    • 88' Tony Mowbray plays his last card, bringing on Pedro Pele, who was not fit to start, in place of Borja Valero.
    • 85' Both sides look resigned to settling for a point now, but don't rule anything out with these two defences!
    • 82' Bernard Mendy is finally booked, and Paul Robinson will be delighted after the pair's long-running feud in this match.
    • 81' Indeed, Brown makes a courageous substitution, bringing on Caleb Folan in place of Richard Garcia.
    • 78' Hull continue to press for their third, which would surely clinch all three points, and Phil Brown looks to be making a few changes.
    • 75' This second half has really come to life and challenges are still flying in everywhere as both sides' desperation to clinch a winner continues to mount.
    • 73' GOAL!!! Chris Brunt scores from the penalty spot to equalise once more! His strike was close to Matt Duke, but had sufficient power to beat the keeper. Robert Koren was brought down rashly by Kamil Zayatte.
    • 71' Tony Mowbray is furious with the ease at which Mendy got down the right, and his side must respond once more.
    • 69' GOAL!!! Hull take the lead for a second time courtesy of Craig Fagan! More fine work from Bernard Mendy down the right culminates in a whipped cross which Fagan converts with a clinical diving header.
    • 67' Hull look determined to go for the three points, and Richard Garcia continues to look bright in the middle of the park.
    • 64' James Morrison receives the ball on the edge of the Hull box, but his swivel leads to a tame shot which Matt Duke comfortably saves.
    • 61' Ryan Donk clatters Richard Garcia in a cynical challenge on halfway, and is rightly booked by Peter Walton.
    • 58' Albion's Chris Brunt is getting increasingly frustrated with his lack of possession down the left, but his side are holding their own in this second half.
    • 56' It has been end-to-end play in this second half, with the game really in the balance. Richard Garcia almost latches on to Mendy's cross in the six yard box, but narrowly misses it.
    • 53' GOAL!!! West Brom equalise through Jay Simpson to stun the hosts! A clever, jinking run by James Morrison inside the Hull box finds Simpson, who slides his left-footed shot incisively past Matt Duke.
    • 53' A corner is swung in by Dean Marney, which Michael Dawson meets in the box, but his header is straight at Carson who saves.
    • 51' Kamil Zayatte writhes on the ground after a strong challenge by Richard Garcia, but the defender looks okay to continue.
    • 48' A good parried save by Carson denies Dean Marney after Fagan layed the ball off to the midfielder on the edge of the area.
    • 46' The second half is underway and it will be interesting to see how effective Tony Mowbray's team-talk was during the break.
    • 45+2' Peter Walton signals half-time, and Hull City walk off with a spring in their step after that tremendous goal by Mendy on the stroke of the whistle! West Brom have it all to do after a sluggish first half.
    • 45' GOAL!!! Hull deservedly take the lead and it is Bernard Mendy who has got it! The midfielder charges purposefully down the right wing, before cutting inside without being tracked, and cooly rounds Carson before slotting home!
    • 45' Richard Garcia whips in a delightful free-kick which nobody manages to get on the end of, but Hull end the half positively. Two minutes to be added.
    • 44' Robert Koren, who has been in good form for Albion in recent weeks, displays a neat piece of skill to outwit Richard Garcia down his left, but the midfielder has been very subdued on the most part.
    • 42' A nasty challenge from Michael Dawson through the back of Jay Simpson probably deserved a booking, but Peter Walton keeps his cards in his pocket once again.
    • 40' A poor headed clearance from Paul Robinson loops back towards his goal, with Scott Carson desperately back-tracking to tip it over for a corner.
    • 39' Marc-Antoine Fortune finds himself through on goal, but his shot is blocked by Michael Turner, with Matt Duke scrambling across his goal.
    • 37' The Robinson-Mendy feud continues to simmer as the defender furiously accuses his tormentor of getting him booked - I don't know about that!
    • 35' The home side continue to keep Albion under the cosh with a number of corners; meanwhile, Robinson and Mendy clash again, and the left-back is booked - that was inevitable.
    • 32' An unbelievable miss by Richard Garcia, unmarked and ten yards out, as Kilbane swings in a perfect cross onto the midfielder's head, but he puts it over - shocking!!
    • 31' Hull enjoy more possession through Richard Garcia and Kevin Kilbane down their left, but Sam Ricketts defends solidly.
    • 28' A decent chance for Albion goes begging as Paul Robinson loops in a cross from the left, which is neatly chested down by Fortune into the path of Simpson, who blazes his shot over the bar.
    • 26' Again Carson comes for a cross and looks very apprehensive, punching poorly, but this time Zuiverloon comes to his rescue to clear away.
    • 24' Scott Carson stays rooted to his line instead of coming for a regulation cross by Dean Marney from the right, leaving Craig Fagan with a chance in the box, but the striker can't get the ball under control and shoots over the bar.
    • 22' Bernard Mendy and Paul Robinson clash once more, with the defender coming off worse this time. He looks okay, but is moving quite gingerly at the moment.
    • 20' Sloppy play from Marc-Antoine Fortune squanders a promising move from Albion, as the striker looked to link-up with his partner Jay Simpson, but poorly mis-directing a simple pass.
    • 19' A dangerous run by Jay Simpson, attempting to latch on to a long ball from Borja Valero, gives us an opportunity to see his rather shocking mohawk haircut.
    • 16' Ryan Donk clatters Ian Ashbeen from behind and is very lucky not to receive the first booking of the game, as the play continues to be hopelessly fragmented in the middle of midfield.
    • 14' Craig Fagan has started very brightly for the home side and the forward is unlucky not to win his side a corner, forcing a challenge from Gianni Zuiverloon, but Walton generously awards Albion a goal-kick.
    • 12' This game is crying out for someone to get their foot on the ball and settle things down a bit; James Morrison does not do that, instead shooting wastefully from 30 yards.
    • 11' A rash challenge by James Morrison on Dean Marney gifts Hull a free-kick, but the midfielders waste it, with seven players waiting in the box.
    • 9' A very robust challenge by Bernard Mendy on Paul Robinson prompts some furious accusations from the visitors, but referee Peter Walton just gives the midfielder a stern ticking-off.
    • 7' A very unconvincing attempted clearance by Scott Carson, whose confidence must still be rather delicate after Albion's trouncing midweek, but his horrendous scuff luckily for him, falls to Robert Koren.
    • 5' The game has started pretty scrappily, as you would expect with so much to play for, but both managers were at pains to point out that this is not a "must-win" game - very debatable if you ask me!
    • 3' Craig Fagan begins his arduous task of leading the line on his own today for The Tigers, by nipping at the heels of Ryan Donk with impressive tenacity.
    • 1' We're underway at the KC Stadium and Phil Brown is cutting a hugely agitated figure on the touchline, pacing around and barking instructions into his mic - clearly a few things were left unsaid in the dressing room.
    • - Hull's record signing Jimmy Bullard is not included after missing training in the week, while Daniel Cousin doesn't even make the bench due to a persistent knee injury. Meanwhile, Matt Duke is retained in goal after his impressive performance midweek. West Brom are without Jonas Olsson, Leon Barnett and long-term casualty Neil Clement. But Abdoulaye Meite returns, with Pedro Pele and Ryan Donk having shaken off groin problems.
    • - Welcome to this Premier League encounter between Hull City and West Brom at the KC Stadium. Phil Brown's side come into this match on the back of a six-game losing streak, while West Brom will be looking to bounce back from their 5-0 thrashing against Manchester United on Tuesday. The two weakest defences in the league should ensure a plethora of chances today.
