During half-time the police moved into the home end to root out the ringleaders who had been leading the singing. One passionate fan was led away to jeers from his fellow supporters. The jeers were not against him but for the heavy handed attitude that BOTH police and club have adopted about Jan's return.
One minute they're asking the fans to create more atmosphere the next they're turfing out the one's who are creating it. It's just a bit of harmless banter for God's sake not an incitement to riot.
Why didn't the police wade into the away end when the Hull fans were calling for Molby's head at the end of the game?
This kind of attitude does the club no favours.
Hull came out looking all the more brighter for Jan's half-time chat. We remember those don't we!
Branch had the first attempt on goal when he headed over the bar from close range but it didn't take long for the Reds to regain the upperhand.
came close with a header of his own that was blocked on the line but the on the hour mark he sealed the game with an absolute gem of a goal.
A corner was taken on the right by Craig Hinton and when it looked as if the ball had dropped too far behind Bo he somehow stretched out, swivelled and hammered the ball past the static Musslewhite.
The ground erupted. We had got the goal we had wanted and deserved.
After that it was one way traffic with the Reds going in search of the second goal. A Broughton lob almost got it but a City defender again cleared off the line.
Bo Henriksen found his name in the refs little black book after 74 minutes when he was judged to be offside. If he was it was very, very close but he slammed the ball down in disgust and was booked for his actions.
Four minutes from the end of the game Broughton missed a great opportunity to get on the scoresheet when, in a one on one with the keeper he fired his shot straight at him when it wouldn't have taken much to just lob it over him.
Then the Harriers had a penalty appeal turned down. Bo, who was clear on goal, had his ankle tapped by a Hull defender but instead of staying down he got up to fire at the target but the keeper saved it and City's pet ref waved his appeals away.
Two minutes later Bo was denied another chance from close range when his shot stung the keepers hands and as he connected with the rebound he fell to the floor. The ball fell to him again and he tried to flick it with his foot but it rolled just the wrong side of the post. Heads in hands time!
Danny Williams was next in the book after an innocent looking tackle on Dudfield but the ref hadn't finished yet and in injury time he also added the names of Lee Ayres and Sean Flynn to his list of most wanted men.
We moved up to 8th place in the league while Jan's new team languish ten places below us and are looking like a team going one way. Down.
They were pretty bad at times with no cohesion and flair. Their defence looks cumbersome and with the exception of Whittle didn't seem up for it.
We were though, and it showed. At times our play was reminiscent of our good times with Molby and Sam Shilton
showed why Jan was wrong to treat him the way he did.
His runs down the wing and his reading of the game were a revelation and he must be in line for most improved player of the season award come next April.
I heard Molby talking on the radio after the game about our performance today. He was generous with his praise and admitted that Hull had been beaten by the better side.
Jan wasn't all that bad then.
