Hull City was unable to survive the drop as they played out a 0-0 draw with Manchester United in their final English Premier League encounter of the 2014/2015 season at the KC Stadium on Sunday. On the final day of the season the Tigers were in need of something big to get them out of the bottom three. They had a few early half-chances and came very close in the 20th minute when Victor Valdes was forced to make a save when Robbie Brady found Ahmed Elmohamady at the back post and the Egyptian player aimed for the bottom right corner but the Spanish keeper clawed it away from danger.
Both teams continued to look for the breakthrough but to no avail as the half-time break loomed. In the second stanza substitute Marouane Fellaini was involved in a dangerous tackle on Paul McShane and was given his marching orders as the visitors were set to finish this match with ten men. With the news that Newcastle United were 2-0 up it was all Steve Bruce’s men at the KC Stadium as they were fighting to get something out of this match with chances from Abel Hernandez and Stephen Quinn. but it was a leap too far as Michael Dawson and company were relegated to the Championship finishing in 18th place.
