Hull City secured a vital win to steer them even further away from the relegation zone at the weekend, with a comfortable 2-0 victory over relegation rivals Brentford.
The Tigers went into the fixture on the back of just one defeat in their last seven league games, and were hopeful of securing a crucial three points against a Brentford side that had won just one of their last thirteen matches.
Nigel Adkins’ men got off to the perfect start and set the tone for the rest of the game, as star-man Fraizer Campbell netted a quickfire brace to put the Tigers 2-0 up within the first 20 minutes of the encounter.
The 31-year old is now on 8 goals for the season, and it’s his star-studded performance that will be analysing today, in our FLW Spotlight…
Campbell has been perhaps an unlikely star for Hull this season, he has scored some important goals this term, with the latest brace by far more crucial than any other thus far this term.
The 31-year old scored two out of three shots on goal on Saturday – he displayed his experience and knowhow for being in the right place at the right time for both of his goals, a “fox in the box”, so to speak.
He was a nightmare throughout for the Bees – he drew one foul and contributed to one interception at the other end of the pitch, and brought his other teammates into the game, accruing a pass success rate of 83% from 6 passes.
Hull are now five points clear of the relegation zone, and with Campbell up front, they always have a threat.
