Tommy Elphick: Operated the back four well enough, but Hull's concessiion was a soft one. 6

Jordy De Wijs: Afternoon curtailed in the 33rd minute after he hobbled off following a challenge with Jordan Hugill. 6

Markus Henriksen: Showed drive and industry and went close with an early drive. Booked. 6

Todd Kane: Quiet offensively and did not impose himself on proceedings. 6

Kamil Grosicki: Was as lively as anyone and his attitude and work ethic could not be faulted. 7

Chris Martin: Against two seasoned campaigners in Ayala and Flint, Martin showed an appetite for the fight. Won the penalty, too. 7

Jarrod Bowen: Missed two decent opportunities, but made amends with a cool penalty. 6

Substitutes: Stephen Kingsley (De Wijs 33). Sound enough after coming on early. 6

Frazier Campbell: (Grosicki 76,) 6

Not used: George Long, Kevin Stewart, Nouha Dicko, Will Keane, Robbie McKenzie.

Middlesbrough

Darren Randolph: A virtual spectator in the first period. One decent save to keep out Grosicki's free-kick 6

Daniel Ayala: Blotted his copybook with a rash shove on Martin to concede a needless penalty. 5

Aden Flint: Produced one excellent first-half challenge to deny Grosicki and was solid again. Went close with a second half header. 7

George Friend: Flustered on one or two occasions, but grew into the game. A whisker away with a fierce drive early in the second half. 6

Ryan Shotton: Got forward when the chance arose, but his crossing was largely off radar. 6

Adam Clayton: Steady-away in the engine room for the visitors. Replaced on 76 minutes, booked. 6

George Saville: One or two nice touches, but nothing too spectacular. 6

Jonny Howson: Not too much came off, particularly in the first half, but provided an assist for Boro's goal and almost nicked it for Boro at the death. 6

Sam McQueen: Nothing startling and some of his crosses were disappointing. 5

Britt Assombalonga. Off target with one first half chance, but found the net early in the second half and shot at Marshall soon after. 6

Jordan Hugill. In the wars in the first half. Toiled away, but not too much came off. 6

Substitutes: Martin Braithwaite (Hugill 76), 6; Stewart Downing (McQueen 76), 7; Besic (Clayton 76), 6

Not used: Dimi Konstantopoulos, Danny Batth, Dael Fry, Paddy McNair.
