West Bromwich Albion 1-0 Hull City: Karlan Grant scores again as Baggies beat Tigers

Third-placed West Bromwich Albion climbed within six points of the Championship top spot as they finally saw off Hull City at The Hawthorns.

From a poor pass across his own box by Greg Docherty, home skipper Jake Livermore squared to Karlan Grant and the Albion top scorer confidently drilled home a low right-footed 69th-minute shot to register his eighth goal of the season.

Albion might have won by more but Matt Phillips hit the post before the interval, while Grant should have added a late second on the break and Hull got away with a penalty shout against Richie Smallwood for his challenge on Conor Townsend.
