Middlesbrough   2 - 2   Hull

Robert Koren opens the scoring for Hull

Middlesbrough 2-2 Hull City

Middlesbrough remained in the danger zone despite twice coming from behind to secure a point against Hull.

The visitors opened the scoring when Robert Koren's shot squeezed in after a long punt from keeper Vito Mannone.

Boro soon levelled when Leroy Lita nodded Tony McMahon's cross but Hull hit back when Anthony Gerrard headed in Koren's free-kick before the break.

A Scott McDonald header equalised after good build-up play from Lita as both teams failed to find the winner.

The draw left Middlesbrough sitting precariously in 18th spot, two points from the safety area but they may be disappointed not to have claimed all the spoils after starting so brightly.

Striker Marvin Emnes wasted an early chance to open the scoring for the hosts after racing clear, but the Dutchman could only blaze his shot over the bar.

It was Hull though who took the lead on 20 minutes when a long clearance by on-loan keeper Mannone fell to Koren whose shot surprisingly made its way through the hands of Jason Steele.

James Harper went close to doubling the score and he will have regretted his miss, having to watch Lita nod in the equaliser soon after.

Both teams had chances to edge in front but as half-time approached, it was Hull who took the initiative when Steele struggled to deal with Gerrard's glancing header from Koren's free-kick.

But Middlesbrough did not have to wait long after the break to bring the score levels yet again when McDonald headed in from close range.

Both managers tried unsuccessfully to steal the win by bringing on their spare strikers, as Emnes wasted a chance for Boro and Kamil Zayatte shot wide for the Tigers.
