    Welcome Back Hull City

    The opening few minutes consisted of comfortable possession by Sheffield Wednesday. This materialised into a few threatening chances. The stand in Hull goalkeeper looked uncomfortable dealing with Wednesday set pieces however, he managed to protect his goal. Wednesday also managed to muster a dangerous counter attack which was sufficiently dealt with. 

    Hull had a penalty claim when, from a corner, Dawson shot from close range. Lee looked to have an outstretched hand and prevented the Hull goal. However, the close proximity of the shot weakened the penalty claim. 

    The half hour mark saw Hull dominate proceedings. First, Hernandez found space and struck at goal. This forced an incredible reaction save by Westwood to keep his team level. Next, it was Odubajo who shot just wide from long range. Hull came closest when Diame beat three defenders, closed down on goal, and smashed against the near post. 

    Carlos Carvalhal will have been relieved to hear the half-time whistle as Hull's dominance began to show. Considering the quality of chances that were offered to Hull, they would have felt disappointed to end the half on level terms. 

    Both teams traded heavy blows in the opening stages of the second half. Forestieri shot from close range however, was only able to hit the opposing goalkeeper. Immediately after, the ball fell to an unmarked Dawson on the edge of the six yard box. The instinct of Westwood ensured he was able to close Dawson down and quell any threat. 

    The game again began to decent into a state of equilibrium as both teams matched each other. Then, the 71st minute brought about a piece of Play-Off Final magic. Seemingly out of nowhere, Diame picked up the ball well outside of the Wednesday box. A subtle touch created space, with which he expertly bent the ball around Westwood. The orange end of Wembley erupted as Diame ran away in celebration. 
    Hull managed to control the remainder of the game as they kept possession and slowed down the tempo. Defensive substitutions and a solid defence ensured Hull held out until the final whistle to claim their well deserved place back in the Premier League.
