Hernandez-inspired Hull eye safety after thumping 'Boro

Adam Clayton

A Bola claim the Lions would see this Premier League move with good eyes, although the player has a contract running until 2020 with a €45m release clause.

Marco Silva's remarkable home form continued as Hull City took another giant step towards safety in a thrilling game with Middlesbrough.

Head coach Steve Agnew has changed Boro's mindset since replacing the ultra-cautious Aitor Karanka and the strategy looked to have paid off when Negredo scored his side's first away goal this year, sliding in to meet Adama Traore's cross.

However, their latest result has pleased the Portuguese tactician, after conceding in the opening five minutes through an Alvaro Negredo strike, Hull fought back valiantly; with Lazar Markovic, Oumar Niasse, Abel Hernandez and Harry Maguire all finding the net.

Gibson failed to clear the danger and Hernandez teed up Niasse, who is on loan from Everton, to shoot home in the 27th minute.

Maguire's diagonal ball was crossed first time by Grosicki from the right and with Valdes stranded, Hernandez steered home his fourth league goal of the season.

King, the threat of violence is out there, but that threat can not be a deterrence to the work that needs to be done. They were part of the Third World upsurge, which had emerged after World War II in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Rudy Gestede's header from Stewart Downing's cross forced Jakupovic into a brilliant reflex save and Negredo curled a left-footed effort a whisker wide.

The visitors though did pull a goal back, in controversial fashion, just before half-time as De Roon, clearly in an offside position, headed in. "The players are disappointed tonight but once we're back in training tomorrow we'll all be in a positive frame of mind". Hull midfielder N'Diaye's angled drive was saved at full stretch by Valdes, but such were their exertions in the first periods, players on both sides were already looking exhausted. Andrew Robertson's free-kick to the far post was met by an outstanding Harry Maguire header from an acute angle, with the ball flying past Victor Valdes.

Maguire's emphatic finish, from a tight angle, appeared to take the wind from Boro's sails.

Silva retained the side which finished the game on Saturday keeping two wingers and two strikers up front.

Both tucked chances away from close range as Southampton finally reaped reward after creating a myriad second-half chances.

Middlesbrough, who have a game in hand on 17th-placed Hull, are without a win in their last 13 league games and Agnew admitted his side will likely need to defy the odds if they hope to maintain their top flight status next season.
