Forward Jason Scotland was given the ball by then 17-year-old Connor Wickham and the Trinidadian shot low past City keeper Brad Guzan to put the home side ahead. It was his ninth goal of the season and the eighth of his spell at Portman Road.

But with five minutes remaining, Hull equalised when Corry Evans crossed from the left and sub Simpson who flicked a header beyond Town keeper Marton Fulop and into the net from 12 yards to grab a point for Nigel Pearson’s side.
