Barnsley 1 – Hull 1: Long on target as Tigers are held

Shane Long broke the deadlock for last season’s FA Cup finalists Hull.

The Irish international striker opened two minutes after the restart as he charged down Barnsley keeper Adam Davies’ attempted clearance following Lewin Nyatanga’s misplaced pass back to his goalkeeper.

Conor Hourihane levelled for Barnsley 10 minutes later when he capitalised on a mistake from Eldin Jakupovic after Hull’s replacement keeper misjudged the flight of a long ball.

Hull’s next match is against Trecin in the Europa League on Thursday.
