Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 Hull City

Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 Hull City
Fraizer Campbell’s goal was just his second since the start of December

Sheffield Wednesday and Hull City got their first points of the season as they drew at Hillsborough in the Championship.

Fraizer Campbell gave Hull the lead from close range after Jarrod Bowen hit the post and Evandro’s follow-up was well saved by Cameron Dawson.

Fernando Forestieri’s penalty levelled things after he was brought down in the box by Reece Burke soon after the break.

The Owls had a number of chances to win the game but could not find a way to breach the Tigers’ rearguard.

Wednesday striker Steven Fletcher was guilty of a number of big misses as the Scotland forward had chances to score a hat-trick.

The former Wolves, Sunderland and Marseille forward was denied by David Marshall when through one-on-one in the first half while he also saw decent headed chances go wide and over after Forestieri levelled.

Hull skipper Markus Henriksen had a powerful 30-yard strike well saved by Cameron Dawson late on.

Sheffield Wednesday boss Jos Luhukay told BBC Radio Sheffield:

“We had I think two very good chances to win the game. But at the end Hull had one or two moments.

“In the time that Steven [Fletcher] played, he had three good chances. He has had seven months away from us with his long-term injury but he played a very good game.

“I think our defending and our offensive moments were a lot better than last week.”

Hull boss Nigel Adkins told BBC Radio Humberside:

“I thought we started the game ever so well – we could have been two up in the first couple of minutes.

“I thought we were bright. We moved the ball well – quick pockets of movement, good interplay – and it was a great finish from Fraizer Campbell. We could have scored four or five other goals than the one we did.

“We’re disappointed with the goal we conceded in the respect that we don’t think it was a penalty. Reece [Burke] is in the art of clearing the ball and [Fernando] Forestieri has come across him – it should have been a free-kick for us.”
