Result: Hull City too good for West Bromwich Albion

Hull City edge out West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League, thanks to first-half goals from Liam Rosenior and Shane Long.

First-half goals from Liam Rosenior and Shane Long have given Hull City a 2-0 home win against West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League.

The Tigers started well with a high-tempo approach, but it was the visitors who had the first shot of the afternoon when Stephane Sessegnon smashed the ball just over the crossbar.

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.

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, 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.

Hull pushed on in search of more goals after the break, and Jelavic went close with a volley that went wide.

A rare West Brom attack saw Victor Anichebe beat McGregor with a header, but Rosenior was on the line to clear the danger.

That was as good as it got for Pepe Mel's side, who had the crossbar to thank for keeping out Long's curling effort.
