Jackson Irvine’s Hull City have picked up another valuable point in their bid to avoid relegation from the Championship after holding runaway leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers to a draw on Wednesday morning (AEST).
Despite being 17 places and 45 points behind Wolves on the ladder, Hull produced a superb performance to leave Molineux with a well-deserved point in a 2-2 draw.
Irvine started on the bench but came on after the hour mark with the scores tied at 1-1.
A Ryan Bennett own goal put the Tigers in front with 12 minutes left but they were unable to hold on as Oskar Buur saved Wolves by equalising seven minutes from time.
Hull remains in 18th spot on the Championship ladder on 41 points, seven clear of the relegation zone.
Elsewhere in the Championship, Mile Jedinak’s Aston Villa have moved a step closer to booking their spot in the playoffs after a 3-0 win over Reading.
The Caltex Socceroos skipper City watched on from the bench for Villa, who are in fourth spot.
In Scotland, Jamie Maclaren started again as Hibernian cruised to a 3-1 win over Hamilton Academical in the SPL.
Maclaren started played 83 minutes for Hibs, but it was his strike partner that stole the show with Florian Kamberi grabbing a hat-trick for Neil Lennon’s side.
While it was a great outing for Maclaren, fellow Aussie Ryan Edwards had a night to forget for Partick Thistle.
Edwards was substituted at half-time, with his side going on to lose 4-0 to Ross County.
