The game was played out in front of a paltry crowd of 6,608 due to a pre-planned boycott by Hull fans in protest against club owners the Allam family.

But the two sides who prop up the Premier League contributed to an absorbing cup tie.

A goalless first half was not without chances as both sides went in search of the opening goal.

Abel Hernandez scored for the hosts in the 78th minute after being brought on as a substitute.

There were attempts to equalise close to the final whistle, but none were successful.

Hull's Josh Tymon then managed a second goal in the 90th minute.

Wales star Aaron Ramsey hoping for FA Cup Final repeat

"To win in extra-time was amazing", Ramsey said. "To score a winner in the FA Cup final, it's everybody's dream and I managed to live it."

To finally win something after all those years and the pressure that has been put on this club was such a nice feeling of relief to finally win something.It's so important to have that hunger and determination to go out and prove that you're worthy winners.

It's not going to be an easy game, we're going to have to be aware of that, but all the lads are even more hungry to win something this time around. We want that feeling that we had last year and we want to go on and win more things.

– Aaron Ramsey

The Welsh midfielder has also been linked this week with a £50m transfer to Spanish giants, and Champions League finalists, Barcelona.

He said: "that's just something that's been written in the papers. I'm focused on Arsenal and winning the FA Cup. That sort of news doesn't affect me or even enter my mind."
