Published Add your comment

Hull boss Phil Brown admits guiding the club to a first Wembley appearance and to the brink of the Barclays Premier League is the pinnacle of his football career.

The Tigers will face Bristol City in the Coca-Cola Championship play-off final on May 24 for the right to join West Brom and Stoke in the top flight next season after completing a 6-1 aggregate win over Watford in the semi-finals last night.

Goals from Nick Barmby, Caleb Folan, Richard Garcia and Nathan Doyle completed a comeback over Adrian Boothroyd´s side in the second leg and secured a 4-1 victory after Darius Henderson´s opener had briefly stunned a packed KC Stadium.
