PHOTOS: Hull City's worst three moments of 2014

Hull City KC South Stand

As 2014 draws to a close, we take a look at Hull City's worst moments from the last 12 months.

FA Cup heartache: Whilst reaching their first FA Cup final was a remarkable achievement, May 17th will always be a day tinged with a sense of 'what could have been' for Hull fans.

The Tigers were 2-0 up inside eight minutes thanks to goals from James Chester and Curtis Davies, but Arsenal mounted a stunning comeback to win the game 3-2 - leaving Hull players distraught at the final whistle.

Europa League shocker: With Arsenal already in Europe, the Tigers got into the Europa League. After narrowly seeing off Slovakian side Trencin, Hull were matched up with Belgian side Lokeren.

After losing the first leg 1-0, Hull did win the second leg 2-1 - but went out on away goals. It was a shock result considering Hull's Premier League stature, leaving the Belgian's players to celebrate on the KC Stadium turf.

2014 ends on an indifferent note: A 3-1 win over Sunderland on Boxing Day was a boost, but the Tigers came plummeting back down to earth on Sunday, losing 1-0 at home to relegation rivals Leicester.

Steve Bruce's men have to improve against teams are the wrong end of the table, and the red card for Stephen Quinn means 2014 is ending on a strange note; a thumping win one day, a crushing defeat just two days later.
