SUMMARY: Hull City 2-2 Ipswich Town

Hull City endured the worst possible start against Ipswich with an early concession, but didn't fold as has become common this season, instead demonstrating to the character to turn the match around and get themselves into a winning situation. However, the annoying habit of conceding late goals, yet again came back to haunt the hosts, as once more the Tigers failed to hold on meaning more points slipped down the drain.

Again. Again!

The hosts were looking to avoid a third straight home defeat for the first time in seven years - and got off to the worst possible start as McGoldrick netted from a 6th minute corner for Ipswich. Fortunately for the Tigers, some excellent work down the right got the home team back in the game, when Bowen popped up at the far post to level matters on 34 minutes, following a deflected cross from Grosicki.

A complete role reversal occurred six minutes into the second half when City netted - Dicko capitalising on a poor Ipswich defensive mistake. After appearing to cure their lack of confidence when falling behind, The Tigers looked set to claim all the points, when McGregor saved an Ipswich penalty to maintain a slender advantage for the hosts. Yet, Hull City all season long, have failed to solve the problem of conceding late - and Spence's flick squeezed inside the post and trickled over the line on 88 minutes to level matters.
