Hull beats Middlesbrough 4-2, out of EPL relegation zone

Hull beats Middlesbrough 4-2, out of EPL relegation zone

But not last night.

Gibson is now looking for some sort of reaction when Burnley visit the Riverside Stadium on Saturday.

"We controlled all of the second half, I don't remember one shot on our goal, though we need to learn to react".

"It's about the team and we won't stop fighting".

Goals, free-flowing football, stunning saves and a huge dollop of controversy meant the 20,380 crowd were treated to an all-White Rose affair that few will forget in a hurry.

Boro, who have taken one point from three games since sacking Aitor Karanka last month, were backed by 2,500 travelling fans at the KCOM, where Agnew spent over two years as assistant boss to Steve Bruce.

Silva, whose unbeaten home record spans spells at Sporting Lisbon and Olympiacos before his arrival at Hull, said another three points on the back of Saturday's win against West Ham outweighed the significance of climbing clear of the bottom three.

Manager Marco Silva's run of 39 home league games without defeat, which stretches back to March 2014 with Estoril, appeared under threat when Alvaro Negredo gave Boro a fifth-minute lead.

When Silva took over at Hull in January, the club were deep in a relegation battle having picked up just 13 points all season - good for only bottom of the league. With Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool still to play, there seems no way back for the Teesside club.

The fun and games started nearly straight away, Oumar Niasse putting the ball in the visitors' net inside three minutes only to be rightly ruled offside.

"We scored just before half-time and maybe the whistle came at a bad time for us - we were on top and had them penned in".

Those same Teesside voices, though, were soon silenced by three goals in 19 minutes from the home side.

Andy Robertson's deflected cross in from the left caused confusion in the Middlesbrough defence and after Hernandez had seen his effort from close range blocked, Markovic followed up to poke the ball into the net.

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.

It was proper end-to-end stuff and Middlesbrough were nearly back within a goal when Rudy Gestede got up high to meet a deep cross and saw his header tipped onto the crossbar by Jakupovic.

Middlesbrough reduced the deficit in first-half stoppage time in controversial circumstances. The great escape really might be on after all in the East Riding.
