Hull City captain Michael Dawson made his return but could not prevent his side from being beaten at relegated Bolton Wanderers.
The defender has already missed 4 games for Hull and was desperate to make his return for the match.
The only goal of the game was scored by Stephen Dobbie in the 65th minute and gave Bolton a rare victory in the league as the match ended 1-0.
Hull City manager Steve Bruce was really upset with the way his team played as he wanted them to show that they have the mentality to win the play-offs. He was disappointed at the pace at which the game was played. For him, some of his players were playing as if it was a friendly game and did not have any urgency in their pass. He wanted to see some more determination in their play so as to create chances.
Bruce admitted that they have produced this kind of performance too often this season, and this is why they are currently where they are in the table. He added that if you want to get promoted you need to be consistent in every game and his team so far has failed to do so.
Hull City did have chances to win the game but failed to do so. Both Snodgrass, as well as Akpom, hit the crossbar when it would have been easier to score. In fact, ChubaAkpom had three or four clear chances and could have easily won the game for Hull, but he was let down by a lack of composure in front of goal.
Michael Dawson could have also celebrated his return to the team with a goal, but his header will be cleared off the line by a Bolton defender.
