Ashton Gate, Bristol
7 May 2011
Bristol City gained revenge for the 2008 play-off final defeat with a comfortable 3-0 win over Hull City to finish the season in style at Ashton Gate.
The Tigers, who arrived in the West Country on a 17 game unbeaten run away from the KC Stadium, were on the back foot from the start as the Robins stormed into a third minute lead.
Jon Stead gathered Albert Adomah's mis-hit shot at the back post to prod the ball under Hull 'keeper Matt Duke to give City a flying start.
That lead was soon doubled when Brett Pitman latched on to Stead's flick on and dinked the ball over Duke from a narrow angle with 14 minutes on the clock.
Hull's best chance came moments after half-time when Aaron Mclean headed over Tom Cairney's pinpoint cross from only six yards.
Jamal Campbell-Ryce then wrapped up the win in the 56th minute, springing Hull's offisde trap to race onto Jamie McAllister's long punt upfield before firing into the roof of the net from 18 yards.
Moments later, City's third goalscorer was replaced by 17-year-old midfielder Bobby Reid, who joined fellow debutant Joe Edwards for the final third of the game.
Stead was whiskers away from adding a fourth in the 79th minute when his close control created space for a left-footed curler that went wide off the post with Duke well beaten.
And with only three minutes remaining, substitute David Clarkson was also denied by the woodwork when his shot crashed off the post after rounding Duke.
CITY (4-4-2): James; Edwards, Wilson, Nyatanga, McAllister (Clarkson '76); Adomah (Woolford '24), Elliott, Skuse, Campbell-Ryce (Reid '57); Stead, Pitman.
HULL (4-3-3): Duke; Gerrard, Hobbs, Chester (McShane '33), Dawson; Harper, Koren (Mclean '34), Okpan; Amoo (Cairney '46), Fryatt, Simpson.
