Brady stars but Hull crash out

Hull’s first Europa League campaign ended in disappointment at the play-off stage after a vital away goal for Lokeren saw the Belgian side through at the KC Stadium last night — despite Ireland’s Robbie Brady’s best efforts.

Brady stars but Hull crash out

Having been beaten 1-0 in the first leg, Hull needed a convincing win at home but while a brace from Irish international Robbie Brady was enough to ensure a 2-1 victory on the night, Jordan Remacle’s strike proved crucial in separating the sides.

The Tigers’ hopes of finding an all-important third that would have swung the game back in their favour went up in smoke in the 72nd minute when Ivorian striker Yannick Sagbo was sent off.

With 10 men, the task proved too much for Steve Bruce’s side but there was late drama as Tom Huddlestone’s late strike — the last kick of the game — was blocked on the line by defender Alexander Scholz.

Elsewhere, Mauricio Pochettino’s perfect start to life at Tottenham continued last night as they booked their place in the group stage brushing aside AEL Limassol 3-0 at White Hart Lane. Harry Kane opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time after missing a 13th-minute penalty before Paulinho and a spot-kick by Andros Townsend wrapped up the win after the break.
