Hull 2-0 Wolves
Richard Garcia and Fraizer Campbell scored to take Hull within three points of the Championship play-off places.

After a dour first half in which Boaz Myhill denied Freddy Eastwood's 25-yarder smartly, the game improved.

Garcia powered home Campbell's cross to break the deadlock and the latter pounced after Ian Ashbee's close-range header was saved by Wayne Hennessey.

Campbell then shot straight at Hennessey, while Andy Keogh blazed wide from 12 yards for a lacklustre Wolves.

  • Hull manager Phil Brown:
    "The work-rate and commitment of the players was terrific and we put Wolves under a lot of pressure.

    "The performance warrants being happy. Maybe it was because I gave them Christmas Day off."

  • Wolves boss Mick McCarthy:
    "We did okay in the first half but in the second we produced a very lacklustre display and they were better than us in every department.

    "But I do believe I've got the players and I keep looking for that something that's going to spark us off.

    "The league is still very tight and that is a silver lining to a very dark cloud at the moment."
