Hull clinch promotion

Published Add your comment

Dean Windass was the hero as his hometown club Hull ended their 104-year wait for top flight football with victory over Bristol City in the Coca-Cola Championship play-off final at Wembley.

Windass, 39, struck a magnificent volley late in the first half to give Phil Brown´s side a narrow win and a promotion to the Barclays Premier League which will be worth millions of pounds to the Tigers.

In a tight game typical of this Championship season Windass was able to produce the one outstanding moment of quality with his 39th-minute strike and earn himself another trip to face the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea next season.
