Rhodes goal ensures Championship survival

Wednesday ensured we will be playing Championship football again next season with a 1-0 win at Hull City.

Jordan Rhodes struck the only goal of the game with a glancing header on 18 minutes – his first goal since Boxing Day – and the victory takes us up into 16th place on 50 points.

In a match of few clearcut chances, Hull thought they had scored a late equaliser through Abel Hernandez, the referee awarding the goal before disallowing it for offside after consulting a linesman.

We also survived one or two other scares as the home side rallied late on, both before and during nine minutes of added time, while substitute Frederik Nielsen came close to marking his debut with a goal.

Strike pair Atdhe Nuhiu and Lucas Joao, along with Daniel Pudil, all missed the game through injury.
