Match Preview

Tigers waiting on Koren Hull midfielder Robert Koren is hoping to return to full fitness in time for his side's final home game of the season against Crystal Palace. The Slovenia international sustained a hamstring injury in last Saturday's defeat to Middlesbrough and missed Monday's draw at QPR. Providing Koren does not suffer any reaction he will return to the Tigers' midfield, but on-loan defender Corry Evans is definitely out. The Manchester United centre-half sustained a hamstring injury at QPR and will miss out, as will Liam Rosenior, who will play no part in the final two games due to medial knee ligament damage. Midfielder Nick Barmby (calf) remains sidelined and goalkeeper Vito Mannone is ruled out with a damaged shoulder, so Matt Duke will continue in goal. David Amoo could make his full debut after scoring the equaliser at QPR as the Tigers who can still mathematically finish in the top six. Crystal Palace will be without Neil Danns. The midfielder scored the only goal in Monday's 1-0 win over Leeds but was sent off in injury time and serves a one-match ban. Darren Ambrose missed out against Leeds with a knee injury but he is expected to be fit and can step in for Danns in the centre. Winger Sean Scannell serves the final game of his three-match ban for his red card against Scunthorpe a fortnight ago. Midfielder Alex Marrow, who was close to a comeback after being sidelined since February with an ankle injury, has now been ruled out of the final two games in order to get fit for next season.

Match Report

Palace secure survival Crystal Palace secured their npower Championship status for next season after drawing 1-1 with Hull. The Tigers saw their play-off dream end over the Easter weekend and they failed to sign off their home campaign in style as youngster Ibra Sekajja marked his Palace debut with a late leveller. Anthony Gerrard put the Tigers ahead in the first half but, after coming on as a substitute, Sekajja netted instantly to earn his side a share of the spoils. The goal mattered little, though, as Palace would have ensured survival even had they lost after Sheffield United could only manage a draw against Barnsley. It completes an excellent debut season for manager Dougie Freedman, who took the reins in November with the Eagles sitting second bottom. Their situation looked perilous at that stage but, having lost just seven of the ensuing 21 games, they have staved off the threat of relegation with one game remaining. Buoyed by their 1-0 victory over Leeds on Easter Monday, Palace enjoyed the better of the opening exchanges at the KC Stadium. The Tigers, who opted to start Aaron McLean and Robert Koren, looked laboured although they did fashion the first opening, Matty Fryatt shooting just wide. But Nigel Pearson's side's chances were hampered in the 14th minute as Richard Garcia had to be withdrawn due to an ongoing knee injury. It was Freedman's men who continued to look the better side and their endeavour was nearly rewarded when Darren Ambrose's fizzing free-kick forced a good save from Matt Duke. Hull started to come back into the game thereafter, though, and took the lead in the 31st minute through Gerrard. Koren sent in an excellent free-kick which Jack Hobbs headed back across goal to leave his fellow defender with the simplest of finishes. Not content with one, the hosts pushed for a second and almost got it immediately with Mclean forcing an excellent save from Julian Speroni. Picking up where they left off, the hosts continued to dominate after the interval as Koren sent a dipping volley just over while Garcia's replacement David Amoo fired narrowly wide. The game entered a lull thereafter with Palace struggling increasingly to impose themselves, although they did nearly equalise when Ambrose saw his goalbound effort blocked by Gerrard. With the match entering its final 20 minutes, the Eagles' desperation to restore parity became more evident. However, that opened gaps for Hull to exploit and they almost did just that but, after being found by an excellent Jamie Devitt cross, Tijani Belaid headed wide. Palace tried valiantly to claim a share of the spoils and earned just that as Sekajja finished coolly from Claude Davis' cross - the newcomer's first touch of the ball in professional football.
