SUMMARY: Hull City 2-2 Everton

Hull City can take solace from the fact that, at last, their performance on the pitch this Friday evening finally produced goals and didn't end in defeat. Yet, old habits die hard, as a calamitous mistake, leading the match twice and giving away a late, late equaliser at home, stopped the Tigers from taking all the spoils.

Tigers take two to make a point

City started at a whirlwind pace and rocked Everton back on their heels in a breezy opening salvo. Merit came in the shape of a corner as centre back Michael Dawson swept home at the back stick after 6 minutes. The Tigers looked impressive and appeared to be deservedly heading into the tunnel a goal to the good, but an injury time corner in the first half saw David Marshall inexplicable punch the ball into his own net when unchallenged.

The hosts had to weather an early storm in the second half, but soon found their feet to regain the momentum. City were rewarded after a barnstorming run from Harry Maguire earned a freekick - and Robert Snodgrass did the honours with a trademark postage stamp finish into the top left corner on 65 minutes. But the Tigers were left to rue another worthy performance that couldn't produce a win, when Ross Barkley's header four minutes from time allowed a late leveller for the Toffees.

But the point at least, took City off the bottom of the table.
