Lee Johnson was left with the consolation of steering Bristol City to their highest league finish for more than a decade as his side narrowly missed out on the play-offs.

The Robins had to beat Hull to retain any hope of squeezing into the end of season lottery, but had to make do with an injury-time equaliser, bundled home by Matty Taylor as the City substitute tussled with Tigers skipper Markus Henriksen on the line, to earn a share of the spoils. 

In any case, victories for Derby County, who clinched sixth place, and Middlesbrough rendered events at the KCOM Stadium largely meaningless as the curtain came down on another Championship campaign.
