Hull City picked up a decent point against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough yesterday and will be satisfied with the result. Fraizer Campbell opened the scoring for the Tigers before Fernando Forestieri equalised in the second half-

David Marshall- 7 – A more confident performance from the Scotland international. He saved a one-on-one by Steven Fletcher in the first-half and looked more assured between the sticks than he did on Monday against Aston Villa.

Eric Lichaj- 8 – He looks to be a really astute signing by City. Lichaj, who is an American international, played well again yesterday and stuck to his duties. He is very defensively disciplined and the Tigers have bagged a bargain by signing him for just £400,000 from Nottingham Forest.

Reece Burke- 7 – It was a solid performance from the youngster despite giving away the penalty with a foul on Forestieri. The summer signing from West Ham looked assured at the back and is forming a strong partnership with Jordy de Wijs.

Jordy de Wijs- 7 – The summer recruit from PSV Eindhoven was much better. He had a nervous game against Aston Villa but played well yesterday and contained the aerial threat of Steven Fletcher with ease.

Stephen Kinglsey- 7 – Another solid display from him. The Scotland international is going to be a key player for City this season and has started the 2018/19 season well in all fairness.

Markus Henriksen- 6 – It was a tough game for the new City captain at Hillsborough with him having to battle with Barry Bannan in the middle of the park. He did ok and nothing disastrous occurred for the Norwegian.

Dan Batty- 7 – The youngster was impressive again. He is a good battler in midfield and likes a tackle. City have a promising young midfielder in their ranks and he is set for a big future.

Todd Kane- 8 – Yet again playing in his new left midfield role, Kane impressed for City and is a solid player. He is comfortable on the ball and made things happen when he cut inside onto his right foot.

Evandro- 6 – The Brazilian would have wanted to make more of an impact yesterday in terms of creating chances. He had some good touches but Hull need to get him on the ball in the next game more as he is a very good technical player.

Jarrod Bowen- 6 – He is City’s main attacking threat but struggled to make a real impact as Sheffield Wednesday snuffed out his danger and dealt with him well.

Fraizer Campbell- 8 – Led the line well for City again and will be pleased to get off the mark for the season. He works hard for the team and is a great asset for Nigel Adkins.

Subs- 

Jackson Irvine- 6- He is a popular player among the City fans but there was not much to shout about regarding his first appearance back after the World Cup.

Jon Toral- 6 – He came on for Evandro and had some decent touches and tried to get on the ball as much as possible.
