SUMMARY: Birmingham City 3-3 Hull City

Hull City showed remarkable character in the second half, to recover a result from a game that looked lost - and in doing so, almost became the first team to beat Birmingham City at St Andrews during this current Championship campaign.

However, that looked extremely unlikely as two defensive errors from Elphick and de-Wijs had rendered the Tigers a two goal deficit as Adams netted twice for Birmingham in the 21st minute and then again during first half stoppage time. The visitors appeared lacklustre with Bowen the only player to offer a threat when firing just wide of the post.

But, Hull City came alive in the second period - Campbell in particular - as two close range strikes from the forward in the 50th and 61st minute drew the Tigers level. Yet, the game was spun on it's head, when Grosicki's stunning 25 yard freekick into the top corner fired Hull City into a deserved 2-3 lead. Then, with just 6 minutes remaining, Adams completed a hat-trick for Birmingham, to give the hosts a share of the points.
