MARCO IS THE MAN AT TIGERS

HULL 2 SWANSEA 0

The Football League Paper - - FA CUP THIRD ROUND -

MARCO Silva won the battle of the new man­agers as his Hull City side scored two late goals to over­come Paul Cle­ment’s Swansea.

Silva re­placed the sacked Mike Phe­lan this week, and led his side to their first win in eight in all com­pe­ti­tions as Abel Her­nan­dez and Josh Ty­mon net­ted.

Swansea went clos­est to break­ing the dead­lock through Ki Se­ung-ye­ung and Nathan Dyer but Her­nan­dez, mak­ing his first ap­pear­ance in two months, slot­ted home from Shaun Maloney’s low cross in the 78th minute.

And Ty­mon killed off Swansea by dou­bling Hull’s lead in added time with his first se­nior goal to send the Tigers through.
