Hull City drew 1-1 away to Sheffield Wednesday yesterday in their second game of the season.
The Tigers were looking to bounce back from a disappointing 3-1 home defeat to Aston Villa on the opening game of the campaign.
Nigel Adkins went for the same starting eleven as the Villa game and his side took the lead in the first half through Fraizer Campbell, who scored in this fixture last season.
However, Sheffield Wednesday leveled in the second half through a Fernando Forestieri penalty, who brought himself back up after being taken down by Reece Burke in the box.
It was an even game and both teams will have no complaints about the scoreline. Hull and Wednesday are now level on points in the league on one.
Hull can take the positives from this result and will be hoping to get their first win over the season against Blackburn Rovers at the KCOM Stadium next Saturday. Next up for the Tigers is a trip back to Sheffield on Tuesday night to play United in the first round of the League Cup but Adkins is expected to rest some players and make wholesale changes.
Yesterday’s result has many positives for the Tigers and it is something to build on now. Any point away from home in the Championship is a good result. Nigel Adkins will be happy that David Marshall played well after a shaky performance against Aston Villa and he will be hoping he keeps the number one spot.
The Tigers’ new look defence also looked solid and the young centre-back duo of Reece Burke and Jordy de Wijs will get better as the season goes on and their confidence increases.
In terms of going forward, Adkins will be pleased that Campbell has got of the mark and the experienced frontman will be looking to get more goals than he did last season.
There is no doubt that Hull need to bring a few more players in on loan before the end of the loan window, but at least they picked up a good result yesterday.
