Hull City 1-1 Sunderland: Rodwell rescues a point for the Back Cats

Sunderland’s Jack Rodwell scored a second-half equaliser to earn the Black Cats a point away to Hull City on Tuesday night, which also saw manager Gus Poyet sent off following an altercation with Hull boss Steve Bruce, reports BBC Sport.

Hull City started strongly in the opening 45 minutes of action, with striker Dame N’Doye particularly dangerous. The Tigers made their dominance count early in the first-half too, with N’Doye getting on the scoresheet. A brilliantly backheeled effort from a Tom Huddlestone cross put City deservedly into the lead.

Before the break, Gus Poyet was sent off by the match official after an argument with his Hull counterpart Steve Bruce, with Sunderland frustrated by the Tigers on and off the pitch. The second-half saw the game continue in similar fashion, with Hull failing to take advantage of their possession and chances created. N’Doye was dangerous throughout the game, and will feel he should have added to his side’s lead after spurning many opportunities, and his profligacy cost Hull midway through the second-half.

Sunderland’s Jack Rodwell scored from close range to level the clash, as both sides took a share of the spoils.
