Hull City

Allan McGregor. Quiet afternoon in the main. One half-decent first-half save with his legs to deny Canos. But a key late save to prevent Watkins from levelling 6

Max Clark. Loose in possession and picked up an injury in the first half, which saw him substituted early in the second half. Mistake in the build-up to Brentford’s opener. 5

Michael Dawson. Stayed strong during the anxious finale and almost scored with a first-half header. 6

Ondrej Mazuch. Solid enough showing alongside Dawson. 6

Fikayo Tomori. Was not handed too many problems by Brentford’s flair players and stuck at it. 6

David Meyler. Unfortunate own goal and picked up a second half injury.

Commendably kept going after his faux pas and didn’t feel sorry for himself. 6

Seb Larsson. Sweet free-kick to make it 2-1 and dug in for the team and displayed his experience. 7

Ola Aina. Featured on the right hand side and was peripheral in the first period. But kept going. 6

Jackson Irvine. Scored just the sort of goal which persuaded Hull to shelve out for his services. Smart finish and a big goal, too. 7

Kamil Grosicki. Underlined just what a big player he can be for Hull which approaching his best. Fine strike and displayed vestiges of real quality. 8

Fraizer Campbell. A real shift for the team, although missed a golden chance to make the game safe earlier for Hull from close range. 7

Substitutes: Jon Toral (Clark 51). Failed to make the most of one heaven-sent opportunity, but showed quality to set up Irvine for the third with a lovely weighted pass. 7

Greg Luer (Meyler 83), Nouhu Dicko (Campbell 83).

Not used: David Marshall, Adama Diomande, Daniel Batty, Josh Clackstone.

Brentford: Bentley 8; Clarke 6, Barbet 6, Egan 6, Bjelland 6; Mokotjo 6 (Yennaris 62, 6), Sawyers 6 (Jozefzoon 74, 7), Woods 6; Canos 6 (McEachran 74, 6), Watkins 6, Maupay 6. Substitutes unused: Daniels, MacLeod, Chatzithedoridis, Mepham.
