Hull City 2-0 Brentford: Tigers strengthen bid for fourth-placed finish as Championship match is marred by protests
Hull strengthened their grip on fourth place in the Sky Bet Championship table with a 2-0 home win over Brentford as fans called for owner Assem Allam to quit the club.
Before the game a large section of Hull fans had held up red cards at the KC Stadium and chanted for Allam to leave. It comes after the 76-year-old added to his unpopularity by introducing a membership scheme for next season after unsuccessfully trying to change the team’s name to Hull Tigers.
On the pitch a Harlee Dean own goal and Mo Diame’s bundled finish, both in the first half, secured the points for Hull to put them three points clear of Derby in fifth. While the visitors remain tenth in the table following a defeat where they rarely threatened the Hull goal.
