SUMMARY: Hull City 2-2 Queens Park Rangers

There's zero point in reviewing this in any great detail, given the length of time that has passed since the game. And anyway, anything that needed to be said, has already been said, elsewhere. Probably. Suffice to say, please let CI add their congratulations on Jarrod Bowen breaking a 61 year old club record by scoring in 8 consecutive home matches. But what cannot escape is; City have developed an Achilles heel in winning matches when in excellent positions to do so.

Boy wonder breaks 61 year old Hull City record

As per usual, City race off like the hare they are and leave the tortoise trailing in their wake. Bowen putting the Tigers into a 7th minute lead following a neat Grosicki lay-off. Indeed, Bowen could've netted before then, but hey, 1-0 good start - and the record the youngster has been craving is signed, sealed and delivered. City's wing twins combined again on the stroke of half time, again Bowen firing low into the bottom corner and the hosts were 2-0 up and cruising.

But, time and again this season it's the worst position for Hull City to find themselves in. Recent games against Aston Villa and Rotherham have found the Tigers 2-0 up and coasting, yet, both ended 2-2. This time Scowen's drifting cross on the hour mark meandered meaninglessly, until it hit the City net, before Hemed mis-kicked and was given all the time in the world to scuff a second effort in to the goal to tie up the scores. As Nigel Adkins called it straight after the game. 'Rubbish.'

He ain't wrong...
