SUMMARY: Millwall 2-2 Hull City

Hull City demonstrated resilience and character to emerge from a see-saw encounter with Millwall that gleaned a precious point on their travels. The Tigers had the lead, but then had to fight back from behind to earn a share of the spoils - but the result nudged City another point further away from the Championship's bottom three.

City got off to a dream start as Grosicki fired in a near post effort on 5 minutes. Millwall struggled in the opening exchanges, but grew into the game - and got rewarded through Gregory's header on 21 minutes to restore parity. From there, the Lions seized control of the match, with the Tigers resorting to counter attacking football, when puncturing Millwall's possession based game. Yet, the scores remained tied at the interval.

It was City's turn to suffer a slow start to the half, as O'Brien lashed in a low drive from outside the box on 54 minutes to put the hosts in front. It took the Tigers time to get to grips with the Lions, but after a good spell of pressure, a well worked corner on 73 minutes saw de-Wijs set up Henriksen for a close range header to level affairs. The Tigers proceeded to quell the match and took a vital point to creep a point further away from the relegation places.
