So as Hull City's maiden European adventure comes to an end, Tottenham can now look towards progressing as far as they can in the Europa League as they continue their promising start to life under new boss Mauricio Pochettino.

They join Everton and Celtic in tomorrow's group stage draw, which takes place at lunchtime and you can find who will face who in Friday's Sportsday. For now, goodbye.

Europa League round-up

Elsewhere in Europe tonight, Inter Milan breezed into the group stage with a 6-0 thumping of Icelandic side Stjarnan while Germans Borussia Monchengladbach also recorded a big win, beating FK Sarajevo 7-0. They are through to tomorrow's draw, along with Feyenoord, who edged Zorya 4-3 to progress 5-4 on aggregate. PSV meanwhile, won 2-0 at Shakhtor.

For all the results, head

here.

Tottenham 3-0 AEL Limassol (agg 5-1)

Tottenham's Andros Townsend, who scored a penalty against Limassol, speaking to ITV4: "It was a good win and hopefully we can make our mark and go far this year. This was my first 90 minutes in a few months, hopefully it will not be long before I am back where I was last year."

Player reaction

Tottenham 3-0 AEL Limassol (agg 5-1)

Tottenham striker and goalscorer Harry Kane, speaking to ITV4: "It was good to get on the scoresheet as a striker but we played well as a team, we did the job we wanted to do and it was comfortable in the end.

"It was good to score two goals in two games now against Limassol, so hopefully I can keep that form going."

A big signing for Leicester City, with the Premier League club just now confirming the arrival of former Real Madrid and Inter Milan midfielder Esteban Cambiasso.

He may be 34, but that is quite a capture for Leicester.

James Gallagher: Hull are deservedly out and the management probably don't care - this is a problem with so mucl PL money - shame for the fans

Tom Garry: Baffled that @HullCity rested so many first-choice players tonight. Opportunity for a #EuropeanTour missed. Wrong priorities?

FULL-TIME

Tottenham 3-0 AEL Limassol (agg 5-1)

That's four wins out of four for Tottenham this season and once again they are safely through to the Europa League group stage. It has been a pretty straightforward qualifying campaign for Spurs, but it will get tougher from here onwards.

Joolz in Exmouth: Any reason why the likes of Kane and Dier aren't in the England squad? Especially when England don't have either of their first choice right backs and Lambert isn't a regular with Liverpool..?

And following earlier comments from Billy in Glasgow that Hull should have put out their strongest possible team...

John from Newcastle: I'm with Billy! Got no sympathy if Hull go out! Play your strongest team! I've seen it with my beloved Newcastle & it baffles me too.

Mark in Bath: Hull City weren't trying to get into Europe, they were trying to win the FA Cup. What would you choose - win the Cup with no Europe or finish runners-up and qualify for Europe?

Tottenham 3-0 AEL Limassol (agg 5-1)

Mauricio Pochettino is slouched back in his chair in the Tottenham dugout as two minutes of injury time are shown on the board. It has been a good night for the Spurs boss, with the home side rarely breaking into a sweat against Limassol.

FULL-TIME

Hull City 2-1 KSC Lokeren (agg 2-2)

That's it! All over at the KC Stadium and all over for Hull City's European ambitions. They needed one more goal to go through but they could not find it and it is Lokeren who go through to the Europa League group stage on away goals.

Hull City 2-1 KSC Lokeren (agg 2-2)

Half a chance for Hull City as Jake Livermore sees a scuffed effort saved, that shot summing up the home's side lack of bite in the final third in this half. Two minutes of the five added on remain.

Text us on 81111

Jon in London: Re Hull making six changes- most of those players coming in were first choice last year, so it's still a strong team, hardly second stringers.

Nick, spoken like a true football fan: Billy because the premiership is priorty, more so for a team like Hull.

INJURY TIME

Hull City 2-1 KSC Lokeren (agg 2-2)

A huge cheer goes up at the KC Stadium as five minutes of added time is announced. Is it enough though?

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 3-0 AEL Limassol (agg 5-1)

Limassol goalkeeper Pulpo Romero gets behind a good effort from Sandro as Tottenham go looking for a fourth. It's the Brazilian's last contribution of the game as Lewis Holtby finally gets on the pitch with just over 10 minutes left.

Hull City 2-1 KSC Lokeren (agg 2-2)

Lokeren are penalised for taking too long with a free-kick as they try to wind down the clock. Five minutes left at the KC Stadium as Tom Huddlestone sees a deflected effort easily saved. A decisive third is looking increasingly unlikely for Hull.

Billy in Glasgow: English teams in Europe baffle me. Why did hull make so many changes? Playing in Europe is fantastic for the fans. Why spend a whole season fighting to get there then send out a second string team? Someone explain.

Nick: As a Fulham fan hoping that Hull can reproduce some of the same Europa League magic that we had back in '10. C'mon City!!!

Tottenham 3-0 AEL Limassol

Lewis Holtby is waiting to come on for Tottenham. In fact, he has been waiting for the last five minutes or so with the ball being passed around at a pedestrian pace in the middle of the pitch. It doesn't look in any danger of going out of play any time soon.

Ten minutes to find a winner

Hull City 2-1 KSC Lokeren (agg 2-2)

Time is running out for Hull City as the game at the KC Stadium enters the final 10 minutes. They are pushing forward now in search of that winner but Lokeren, to their credit, are not packing out the defence. They want another goal as well.

SUBSTITUTION

Hull City 2-1 KSC Lokeren (agg 2-2)

Hull City boss Steve Bruce

Ten-man Hull have no choice but to go for it as they need another goal to go through.

Not surprisingly, manager Steve Bruce sends on Tom Ince in place of defender James Chester with 15 minutes to go.

GOAL

Tottenham 3-0 AEL Limassol (agg 5-1) - Andros Townsend pen (65 mins)

Tottenham celebrate Andros Townsend's goal

Superb stuff from Andros Townsend as he puts the penalty away into the corner with the goalkeeper having committed himself the wrong way. Tottenham are into the Europa League group stage.

PENALTY to Tottenham

Tottenham 2-0 AEL Limassol (agg 4-1)

Kyle Naughton's cross inside the area is handled by Edmar and Tottenham can finish this off now...

Tottenham 2-0 AEL Limassol (agg 4-1)

Almost a third for Tottenham. Aaron Lennon's cheeky chip catches out AEL keeper Pulpo Romero - but not defender Carlitos. The Cape Verde defender (not often you say that on a BBC Sport live text commentary) clears Lennon's effort off the goal-line.

RED CARD

Hull City 2-1 KSC Lokeren (agg 2-2) - Yannick Sagbo

Disaster for Hull as forward Yannick Sagbo is sent off for going in too strong into a challenge on defender Georgios Galitsios. The home side need to find another goal with 10 men. Straight red.

SUBSTITUTION

Hull City 2-1 KSC Lokeren (agg 2-2)

Hull City boost their attacking options as they chase a third goal that will send them through, Nikica Jelavic comes on for Liam Rosenior.

Tottenham 2-0 AEL Limassol (agg 4-1)

It would take something special for Limassol to turn this tie on its head but they are still having a go as striker Lukasz Gikiewicz bends an effort goalwards, it is easy pickings for Hugo Lloris though.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Hull City 2-1 KSC Lokeren (agg 2-2)

Nervy times for Hull as the game enters the final 30 minutes. Lokeren think they have scored, the away fans are celebrating, but the referee's whistle comes to Hull's rescue having spotted a foul inside box before the ball was put in the net.

Hull City 2-1 KSC Lokeren (agg 2-2)

Robbie Brady scores his second of the night for Hull
PA

BBC Humberside's Hull City commentator Dave Burns admits: "We have dreamed about nights like this where we have had to think about the away goals rule - 110 years we've waited but let's hope it doesn't count tonight."

Adair Bergin: ‏Sadly, the hopeful promising start Spurs always have in the Europa League is bound to trail away... *sigh*

GOAL

Tottenham 2-0 AEL Limassol (agg 4-1) - Paulinho (49 mins)

Game over....surely. Spurs midfielder Paulinho, who hunted back possession for Harry Kane's opener, is now the beneficiary. The Brazilian collects Vlad Chiriches' pass, jinks into the AEL box and fires low across the keeper into the bottom corner.

Alex, Fulham: I wonder how much Steve Bruce will regret making six changes if Hull don't end up going through tonight.

Hull City 2-1 KSC Lokeren (agg 2-2)

Robbie Brady's penalty means it is all level on aggregate, but Lokeren are still in the driving seat as they are through on away goals as it stands.

KICK-OFF

Tottenham 1-0 AEL Limassol (agg 3-1)

The referee gives his whistle a short, sharp shrill - and that means it is game on at White Hart Lane. Spurs are within touching distance of the Europa League group stage.

GOAL

Hull City 2-1 KSC Lokeren - Robbie Brady pen (55 mins)

It is not the most convincing penalty but Robbie Brady won't care. The keeper dives the wrong way and Hull are now right back in this.

Penalty to Hull

Hull City 1-1 KSC Lokeren

A handball by a Lokeren defender to block a cross and Hull have a penalty and a lifeline!

Tottenham 1-0 AEL Limassol (agg 3-1)

Europa League latest

No problems for Villarreal tonight, who lead 1-0 against Astana, 4-0 on aggregate. Likewise for Italian side Inter Milan, who are 4-0 up against Icelandic side Stjarnan, leading 7-0 overall, Metteo Kovavic with a hat-trick. It is goalless at the break between Club Bruges and Grasshoppers of Zurich, the Belgian side leading 2-1 on aggregate.

From Andrew: The Europa League is a poisioned chalice. Spurs aren't good enough to win it to gain Champions League qualification by that avenue, and by playing in Europe on Thursday nights their Premier League top four hopes will be damaged as a direct result also.

Jon spurs fan in Eastleigh: You can tell certain players are desperate to use this match to showcase their skills and make Poch aware they're still around. The downside is that those players seem more intent on scoring themselves even when a pass is a better option; dembele, Kane and Townsend guilty already.

Gerret, Thurrock: Lokeren: famous for slaughterhouses and horse meat sausages. Be afraid Hull. Be very afraid...

GOAL

Hull City 1-1 KSC Lokeren - Jordan Remacle (48 mins)

Disaster for Hull as they pay the price for a sloppy start to the second half. Moments after Hull keeper Allan McGregor tipped an effort behind, Lokeren striker Jordan Remacle arrows a shot into the net. Huge task for Hull now as they must score twice.

KICK-OFF

Hull City 1-0 KSC Lokeren (agg 1-1)

Michael Dawson is back down the tunnel and the players return to the pitch to get the second half under way. Poor start for Hull, though, as they give away possession from the off.

Toniwater: Hull have 2 come out in the 2nd half & not let Lokeren settle, Brucie will want intensity from his lads & to keep it for 45mins
