Stoke City gave their Championship survival hopes a big boost on Saturday – but it was a different story for Hull City.
The Potters secured a resounding 5-1 win at the bet365 Stadium thanks to goals from Sam Clucas (two), Nick Powell (two) and a Tyrese Campbell penalty.
Stoke climbed to 17th in the table with another three points, while Hull slipped to just a place and two points outside the relegation zone.
Grant McCann’s side have now not won in their last 12 games in all competitions, losing 10 of those.
Here’s what their fans were saying after a big defeat at the bet365.
@TimPrecious2: Unfortunately we are getting to the point where our beloved club is doomed beyond just a relegation, already a laughing stock, we absolutely zero sight to this malaise to end.
@HullCityLive: It’s as simple as this: If #hcafc sack McCann, I won’t be surprised or particularly disappointed. If nothing changes under his replacement, I won’t be surprised either.
@Uzzell01: Just dared look at the league table… ohh my god, I think the Charlton game is the biggest since our last playoff final. If we win, I think we stay up. Lose… I don’t want to think about it.
@YorkTigers1904: I’m gutted to say it but Grant has to go – lost it big style.
@TazorTullock: We now have the worst Form of any team in the top 5 leagues of the English game, and….
Well, what more is there to be said.
@Groundhopper247: Saw #hcafc lose 5-1 against @stokecity. Disappointing doesn’t even cover it. We are going down and fast, 2 points off relegation and 4th bottom. What does McCann change? Nothing! Do the team even care anymore? Probably not tbh, bunch of league 1 players playing league 1 standard.
@wakka80: After years of following @HullCity it looks like we’re on the downward spiral again.
@GrahamCannon: Got home, had a cup of tea & a think about today’s events… Nope, still convinced we are going down.
@JoshSenior3: Today was shocking… we really are going down aren’t we?
@Jbk113: McCaan has got to go he is out of his depth. Saying that owners won’t back the club. Hope Hull survive but going to be a hard slog till end of season. Come on Hull.
