Hull City have a 2-0 lead against West Bromwich Albion at half time in their Premier League clash.

Curtis Davies's volley was deflected wide for the home side, before Allan McGregor was forced to push away Graham Dorrans's shot.

David Meyler then headed wide from six yards out, but Hull broke the deadlock just moments later.

Shane Long went down under a challenge from Gareth McAuley to win a penalty, but Nikica Jelavic saw his spot kick saved by Ben Foster. However, Liam Rosenior was on hand to head the rebound into the net.

It was two just seven minutes later, thanks to Long's volley from eight yards.
