SUMMARY: Swansea City 2-2 Hull City

Hull City halted Swansea City's late play-off charge with a dramatic two goal deficit comeback - for the second time against the Swans this season - to earn an improbable point, as the Tigers struck twice in three late second half minutes to tie up this match.

2-0 up and you f***** it up. Twice.



The Tigers were pressed onto the back foot from the outset, as Swansea aimed to do their part and win to keep their slim play-off hopes alive. But the visitors defended stoutly - until the 37th minute, when McBurnie netted his 22nd goal of the season from close range, to put the Swans into a half time lead.

The half began and largely continued in the same vein as the first. The Tigers struggled to offer an attacking threat, so it came as no surprise when McBurnie headed in his and Swansea's second goal of the afternoon on 66 minutes. Yet, the match took a dramatic twist when Bowen evaded the offside trap on 77 minutes to pull one back - and just three minutes later, Dicko turned in from close range to level affairs and provided what had looked like an unlikely point for the Tigers.
