Tigers thrash Hornets to book Wembley spot

Published Add your comment

Goals from Nick Barmby, Caleb Folan, Richard Garcia and Nathan Doyle helped Hull reach Wembley for the first time in the club´s 104-year history and set up a Coca-Cola Championship play-off final clash against Bristol City on May 24.

Barmby cancelled out Darius Henderson´s opener as Watford briefly threatened a stirring comeback in the semi-final second leg at a packed KC Stadium before succumbing to a convincing 4-1 defeat, 6-1 on aggregate.

Substitute Folan climbed off the bench to add his side´s second after former England international Barmby had notched his second goal against Adrian Boothroyd´s side in the space of four days.
