Hull City are now winless in six games after drawing 1-1 at home to Preston North End yesterday.
The Tigers were able to lift themselves off the bottom of the Championship table with a point. They are above Ipswich Town due to alphabetical order as they have the same goal difference and goals scored as the Tractor Boys.
It was a frustrating afternoon for Nigel Adkins’ side and they were denied by the woodwork on three separate occasions, with Chris Martin, Reece Burke and Jarrod Bowen all close to opening the scoring.
Hull finally got their chance on 85 minutes when Martin was dragged down in the box. Jarrod Bowen stepped up and sent Preston goalkeeper Chris Maxwell the wrong way and bagged his fourth goal of the season.
That looked enough to earn the Tigers a valuable three points and lift them out of the relegation zone. However, in the third minute of added on time Preston levelled through striker Louis Mount which has heaped more misery on Hull.
Next up for the Yorkshire side is a trip to Ashton Gate to face Bristol City on Wednesday followed by an away day at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.
Here is how the Hull City fans reacted on Twitter yesterday to their 1-1 draw at home to Preston-
Another game and another clueless Nigel Adkins interview, nearly as clueless as his substitutions #hcafc

Grosicki, Batty and De Wijs all had good games for me today. Don't understand the stick Martin gets either – puts a shift in every game, and does all the ugly stuff really well #hcafc

I’m not surprised about Adkins substitutions, anyone who thinks yoghurt and fruit is a suitable substitute for bacon, eggs and black pudding can’t be expected to be able to bring on the correct footballer at certain points in the game. #hcafc

Let’s be honest some #hcafc fans will say we should’ve won that game we had 3/4 great chances but thinking back to first half preston should’ve been way out of site. We were very poor from the start. We need a leader, Henrikson doesn’t fit the bill

Sorry but after that Nige has to go hopefully new owners (soon) & a new manager who knows what he is doing #hcafc

Adkins out. Time to get former England assistant manager, Tord Grip, in. He would know how to hold onto a lead. #hcafc
