Fraizer stars on Hull’s big day

Fraizer Campbell’s sensational season on Humberside came to the perfect conclusion at Wembley Stadium on Saturday as the Tigers won promotion to the top flight of English football for the first time, thanks in no small part to their on-loan centre-forward from Manchester United.
It was Campbell who assisted what turned out to be the only goal of the game, brilliantly finding space in the counter and beating two defenders before checking back and picking out veteran strike partner Dean Windass on the edge of the box, who volleyed home a stunning winner. There was to be no goal for Fraizer to add to his impressive haul of 15 for the season, but his typically unselfish performance highlighted just why Hull want to keep the 20 year old for their step up to the big time next year.
