Hull earns point at Swansea
Swansea, Wales (SportsNetwork.com) - After losing six of its first seven away games this season, Hull City claimed a point at the Liberty Stadium against Swansea City with a 1-1 draw.
Hull took the lead after nine minutes through former Swansea forward Danny Graham, who scored for the first time in league play in 11 months.
But the Tigers were unable to maintain that advantage and Chico Flores equalized for the Swans on the hour mark, leaving the two sides separated by one point in the middle of the table.
Ahmed El Mohamady intercepted a pass in the final third and carried the ball down the right wing before delivering a cross to the back post, where Graham volleyed the ball home from six yards.
The hosts pulled level with 30 minutes to play when Jonjo Shelvey drove a ball to the front of goal from the left wing, allowing Chico to get enough of a touch on the ball to redirect it past goalkeeper Allan McGregor.
Swansea finished the game on the front foot and nearly claimed all three points when Michu got free from his defender inside the penalty area and had his shot saved by the feet of McGregor.
