Hull City 1-1 Huddersfield
A last-minute equaliser from Óscar Estupiñán saw Hull City earn a point in the EFL Championship, drawing 1-1 against Huddersfield Town at the MKM Stadium.
Michał Helik gave the Terriers a first-half lead before Estupiñán’s 12th goal of the season rescued the Tigers a point with the last kick of the game.
Liam Rosenior made seven changes to his starting XI to the one that faced Fulham in the third round of the FA Cup last time out with Matt Ingram, Sean McLoughlin, Greg Docherty and forward Tyler Smith keeping their places. For McLoughlin, it was his 50th league appearance for Hull City.
The Terriers had the first opportunities of the fixture as Matty Pearson’s effort at the back post was well saved by Ingram before the Tigers goalkeeper held a shot comfortably from range.
In the other goal, Nicholas Bilokapic acrobatically denied Regan Slater’s powerful strike before Ingram denied Mathew Lowton minutes later from close range. From the resulting corner, Huddersfield took the lead. Jack Rudoni’s delivery created an initial goalmouth scramble which allowed Helik to head home on the goal line at the back post.
Ryan Longman searched for a Hull equaliser, but his effort was well blocked by a crowd of Huddersfield defenders. Lowton then searched for the run of Holmes, with the attacking midfielder forcing a good save one-on-one from an onrushing Ingram.
