Match report: Micheal Dawson’s late strike denies Sheffield Wednesday of three points

Michael Dawson’s goal deep into second half injury time handed Hull City a 2-2 draw against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

Gary Hooper had put the hosts 2-1 ahead with a second half brace, to cancel out Fraizer Campbell’s first half effort.

Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal was also sent to the stands late on; he was dismissed after claiming that Adam Reach’s effort was blocked by the arm of Ondrej Mazuch. Referee Michael Jones did not award the penalty and sent Carvalhal off instantaneously.

Hull took the lead midway through the first half when Frazier Campbell was put through on goal by Markus Henriksen and he curled his shot past goalkeeper Keiren Westwood, taking his tally to five for the season.

The Owls equalised with just over 20 minutes to go. Hooper capitalised on a rebound to and smashed home his first career goal against Hull.

Hooper got his second with five minutes remaining when he smashed substitute Atdhe Nuhiu’s flick-on on the half volley past Allan McGregor for his 10th league goal of the campaign.

Dawson levelled the match late into injury time, his shot trickled past Westwood and in off of the far post.

The hosts had put the ball in the net twice in the first half, however, neither goal stood; Adam Reach’s half volley was ruled out for a foul in the penalty area, whilst Hooper’s one-on-one chance was disallowed for offside.

Wednesday came close to equalising moments before they eventually did. Adam Reach embarked on a superb run down the left hand side, beating several players on the way, he cut inside and saw his shot cannon back off the post; substitute Jordan Rhodes was unable to put away the rebound.

The draw for Wednesday is their seventh match in a row unbeaten; meanwhile, Hull are without a win in their last seven games.

The draw drops the Owls down to 12th in the Championship, whilst the Tigers remain in 20th position.

Both teams are next in action next Saturday; Wednesday face a trip to Norwich City, whilst Hull face Brentford at home.
