    All over. Big, big win for Hull. They're out of the relegation zone.

    Marco Silva doesn't look too happy on the touchline. He should be. The fans are delighted.

  3. Post update

    Hull 4-2 Middlesbrough

    Middlesbrough's winless run is going to stretch to 13 games. 

    Hull look more likely to score a fifth here.

    Five minutes added time.

    Hull 4-2 Middlesbrough

    Spurs ahead at the Liberty. That is greeted by huge cheers in Hull.

    Just minutes left.

  6. Post update

    Hull 4-2 Middlesbrough

    Big news at the bottom. Spurs have equalised against Swansea. That means Hull are out of the bottom three as it stands. They're just running down the clock here.

    Markus Henriksen is on for the impressive Kamil Grosicki.

  7. Post update

    Hull 4-2 Middlesbrough

    Boro haven't quite given up yet. Cristhian Stuani almost gets in ahead of Eldin Jakupovic in the six-yard box but the goalkeeper manages to parry the ball away.

    Adama Traore has taken a knock and is limping. Boro have used all three of their subs.

    A goal one minute, an injury the next.

    Harry Maguire has to go off after being clattered by his own goalkeeper a few minutes ago. 

    He's probably done enough to seal three crucial points for his side though.

    Michael Dawson is the man to come on.

    Cristhian Stuani is on for Rudy Gestede for Boro.

    Hull 4-2 Middlesbrough

    Middlesbrough fans it is not looking good. With Swansea winning against Spurs you're eight points from safety.

    That result is tough on Hull too by the way. They'd be out of the drop zone if Tottenham were to get an equaliser at the Liberty Stadium.

    "We've got Marco Silva, we've got Marco Silva," chant the home fans.

    What a remarkable job he is doing.

    Patrick Bamford replaces Alvaro Negredo for Boro.

  11. Maguire gets Hull's fourth

    Hull 4-2 Middlesbrough

    Hull have played really good football and I think they deserve this. 

    This one goal comes from a set piece rather than tidy play though.

    Andrew Robertson swings in a deep free-kick and Harry Maguire is totally unmarked at the back stick and heads inside the far post.

  12. GOAL - Hull 4-2 Middlesbrough

    Harry Maguire

    All over?

  13. Post update

    Hull 3-2 Middlesbrough

    Hull are testing out the legs of the Boro defence playing a couple of long balls over the top for their forwards to chase.

    Kamil Grosicki is showing off all of his tricks on the left wing for Hull. He has been impressive. Between him and Adama Traore we've seen enough tricks for a lengthy YouTube compilation tonight.

  14. Post update

    Hull 3-2 Middlesbrough

    Middlesbrough look to have gone 3-5-2 after that recent substitution. They haven't quite come to grips with the formation in an attacking sense however. Steve Agnew is barking out instructions on the touchline. 

    Harry Maguire heads over from a corner for Hull.

  15. Post update

    Hull 3-2 Middlesbrough

    Less than half an hour left. Middlesbrough need a goal desperately. In fact, realistically they need two with Swansea winning at home to Tottenham.

    Hull look the side more likely at the moment though.


    Hull 3-2 Middlesbrough

    First change for Middlesbrough. Adlène Guédioura is on for James Husband.

  17. Post update

    Hull 3-2 Middlesbrough

    Hull have their first meaningful effort of this half and force Victor Valdes into a good low save.

    Alfred N'Diaye has the shot from the right side of the area and Valdes gets down well. You wouldn't expect a multiple Champions League winner to be beaten with a strike like that however.

  18. Post update

    Hull 3-2 Middlesbrough

    This must be a difficult one for Middlesbrough fans to fathom. Their side has scored two goals in a game for the first time since December but have been far more open than throughout the rest of the season.

    What can they do? Middlesbrough sit tight in matches and slip towards the relegation zone and now show more attacking intent but concede three in the first half against their relegation rivals.


    Hull 3-2 Middlesbrough

    Abel Hernandez is in trouble here. The Uruguayan - the scorer of Hull's third goal - looks to have a muscle problem.

    He's off and is replaced by Evandro, who himself is returning from injury.

  20. Post update

    Hull 3-2 Middlesbrough

    The first test of the Hull defence in this second half comes via a free-kick clipped into the box by Stewart Downing. A free-kick is given to the home side though, cue ironic cheers from the Hull faithful.
