Arsenal academy graduates Isaac Hayden and Chuba Akpom are celebrating another win as Hull City scored late on to beat Fulham on Wednesday night.
The Arsenal loanees have enjoyed good starts to their time under Steve Bruce and both played a part once again as the Tigers beat Fulham to go up to second in the Championship.
Akpom started the game at the KC Stadium but couldn’t exert his influence over the game to add to the two goals he has already scored this season, and was eventually subbed off for Nikica Jelavić.
Jelavić combined with fellow sub (and another Arsenal loanee) in Hayden to tee up the winner, scored by Sone Aluko with fewer than five minutes remaining.
hard fought win today showed good team spirit to get the 3 points #hcfc

You can see Hayden’s impressive work in the build up for the winner in the video below. The 20 year-old had played in defence in previous games but went on in midfield on Wednesday evening, replacing Tom Huddlestone, and looks like he impressed.
