Hull City 2-0 Brentford

Harlee Dean own goal

Harlee Dean’s own goal put Hull City ahead

Hull City scored two first-half goals to ease to victory over Brentford in the Championship.

The hosts went ahead when Harry Maguire’s long pass found Andrew Robertson, whose cross was turned into his own net by Harlee Dean.

Adama Diomande saw his penalty saved by David Button five minutes later after Alex Bruce was fouled by Jake Bidwell.

Mohamed Diame put away his own rebound from close range to secure the win, as Brentford rarely threatened.

The action was overshadowed by protests from the Hull supporters calling on owner Assem Allam to quit the club.

A section of supporters held up red cards and chanted for Allan to leave, with the latest unpopular move being the introduction of membership scheme for next season.

Fourth-placed Hull, who now have a three-point lead over fifth-placed Derby, had the better of the opening stages and Diame curled a shot wide, while Robertson saw his 22-yard effort saved by Button and also had a shot come back off the bar.

At the other end, Marco Djuricin shot wide after a quick Brentford counter-attack.

The home side had chances for a third with substitute Chuba Akpom heading wide before firing straight at Button.

The result extended the sequence of no draws between the two sides to 17 matches, with Hull now winning nine compared to Brentford’s eight.
