SUMMARY: Norwich City 1-1 Hull City

There is very little hope of making a concerted bid for the play-offs if Hull City continue to concede late, late goals. For the fourth match running now, the Tigers have allowed the opposition to net in the dying embers of the match - and today at Carrow Road was another glaring example - despite a decent rearguard action with 10 men.

Just a 96th minute concession this week...

The Tigers have a pretty wretched record at Norwich City, last winning here some seven years ago. Yet, luck may have turned in their favour when Nouha Dicko scored his debut goal for the club, latching on to Markus Henrikson's defence splitting pass that slipped the offside trap, allowing the striker to calmly roll the ball into the bottom corner against the advancing keeper on 29 minutes. A 0-1 half time lead was threatening to end a 14 month winless streak on the road, it seemed.

However, old habits die hard and David Meyler increased the fragility of Hull City's 0-1 advantage when receiving a second yellow card that invoked his dismissal on 57 minutes. The Tigers had chances to extend their lead, but Norwich never gave up, increasing the pressure on the visitors and a goal in the sixth minute of injury time scuppered Hull City's long wait for an away win when Nelson Oliviera poked in a scruffy goal to deal the Tigers a savage blow so late in the match.
