    Gareth McAuley headed the Baggies in front, but the promising start led to a mere point. West Brom sits ninth with 17 points.

    West Brom looked very much like the side that battered Burnley 4-0 on Monday, while Hull City followed suit by looking almost as shaky as it did against Sunderland.

    A yellow card came Michael Dawson’s way after a perceived block on Allan Nyom, and West Brom had a free kick from 25 yards out from goal.

    Sam Clucas took a yellow card that could’ve bene red for a nasty tackle on Darren Fletcher. McAuley then put West Brom ahead when his header turned a set piece into a goal.

    The second half was lacking pace and fun, but Hull’s captain changed that when he plucked a nodded down ball out of the air from a free kick to make it 1-1 in the 72nd minute.

    David Marshall made a fantastic save on Nacer Chadli‘s high-powered free kick to keep it level with four minutes to go.
