Fulham v Hull, an inconvenient truth


We don’t do that well in this fixture:

August 2008, Hull 2-1 Fulham

Jimmy Bullard scored against his former club as Hull edged closer to safety in manager Iain Dowie’s first home game.

Bullard smashed home a first-half penalty after the lively Jose Altidore was wrestled to the ground by Manchester United-bound Chris Smalling.

Craig Fagan wrapped things up with a looping header to leave Hull 18th but now level on 27 points with West Ham.

Hull scored six second-half goals to thrash Fulham and go seven points clear of the Premier League relegation zone.
