SUMMARY: Hull City 2-2 Rotherham United

Hull City turned in a Jekyll and Hyde performance at home to Rotherham United that left a stunned home team scratching their heads on how they haven't gone on to claim all the points in this Yorkshire derby. And despite the visitors putting a little more effort in the second period, two huge slices of luck were required to get back on level terms.

Two minute boy wonder

The Tigers roared out the blocks as Bowen raced clear in the second minute to sweep home the opener. City were dominant and not allowing the visitors to build any momentum in the match. Grosicki then charged down the left and crossed with demon accuracy for Campbell who only needed to bundle the ball home on 23 minutes to double the advantage. The only surprise being; Adkins' side were not further ahead at the interval.

Yet, come the second half, City were guilty of complacency, allowing their grip on the game to slip. Helped by two huge strokes of fortune, Rotherham pulled a goal back through Forde on 48 minutes when a routine low cross saw the ball inexplicably squirm under Marshall's body for an easy close range tap in. Just seven minutes later, an outrageous deflection off City's own McKenzie rooted Marshall to his spot and the Millers were level. The Tigers failed to regain their first half swagger and two extra points slipped down the drain.
