SUMMARY: Sheffield Wednesday 2-2 Hull City

For a change, it was Hull City who conjured up the late, late goal to take something away from Sheffield Wednesday, but in a match full of late drama, it was only after doing their customary trick of conceding late themselves beforehand, as the points were shared in a see-saw Yorkshire derby at Hillsborough.

City set up defensively and employed a counter-attack style to combat the Owls. Certainly the Tigers offered little going forward, but when in the final third, they did look threatening. Fraizer Campbell made the most of a rare sight on goal, to fire in the bottom corner on 21 minutes and provided the Tigers with a precious lead at the break. Meanwhile Wednesday were booed off, partly because two goals had rightly been chalked off by the referee and partly because for all their possession, the Owls rarely troubled McGregor in the City goal.

The tempo was upped by the hosts in the second half. City survived a scare when the base of their post was struck, but pressure finally told when Hooper levelled matters on 70 minutes. Shortly after, a crushing blow for City occurred when Bowen hobbled off. If that wasn't bad enough, the age old problem of the Tigers conceding late struck yet again, as Hooper scored five minutes from time - but incredibly, Dawson's scruffy effort bobbled in off the post and salvaged a last gasp point for Hull City in the 95th minute.
