Well that was highly predictable wasn't it? After Udinese Calcio's victory over Leicester, the pressure on Hull was ratcheted up and, with Barnsley desperate for points, the Tigers were always likely to be battered by the Tykes.
So it all comes down to the last game of the season. Udinese host a dispirited Leeds, who will have Austin AllAgro and Hell Hadji suspended after their red cards today. Zola's boys won the corresponding fixture 6-1, when, coincidentally, Dirty Dirty Leeds again finished with just nine men on the pitch, and it is hard to see anything other than a Hornets victory: Leeds have got the second worst away record in the division after all.
Which means Hull almost certainly have to beat Champions Cardiff to go up automatically. Going in to the game against Bristol City, promotion seemed a formality; but that 0-0 draw against the team bottom in the division is now looking hugely expensive.
There will be street parties in the Piazza della Libertà in Udine next week if Zola's boys do it!
