Camp­bell finds tar­get to see off West Brom Real leave it late to give So­lari a vic­tory

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - SOCCER -

FRAIZER Camp­bell scored his sec­ond goal in as many games as strug­gling Hull beat pro­mo­tion con­tenders West Brom 1-0 at the KCOM Sta­dium. The three points were well de­served by Hull who de­fended in num­bers but also threat­ened a vis­it­ing team lack­ing in ideas. Camp­bell set­tled the is­sue with a com­posed fin­ish near the end of the first half af­ter a header from Jack­son Irvine bounced off the bar.

Hull al­most grabbed the lead just three min­utes in as Kamil Grosicki cut back on to his right foot and sent over a deep cross which Jar­rod Bowen headed back from a tight an­gle, only to see his ef­fort turned on to the bar by goal­keeper Sam John­stone. SAN­TI­AGO So­lari’s first La Liga game in charge of Real Madrid ended in a 2-0 vic­tory against Real Val­ladolid at the Bern­abeu but they were forced to wait for their win. Madrid squan­dered sev­eral chances and lived dan­ger­ously at the other end as the dogged vis­i­tors twice hit the cross­bar in the sec­ond half.

How­ever, So­lari’s side fi­nally made the break­through in the 83rd minute through Kiko’s own goal be­fore cap­tain Ser­gio Ramos stepped up and scored from the penalty spot two min­utes from time. It was Real Madrid’s first win in six league matches and halted a three-game los­ing run in the com­pe­ti­tion.
