Hull City 2-2 Fulham

Aboubakar Kamara
Aboubakar Kamara doubled his tally for the season, having not scored a goal since September

Aboubakar Kamara scored two second-half goals as Fulham came from 2-0 down to draw at Hull City.

Hull were in control after two strikes in four first-half minutes as Jarrod Bowen and Nouha Dicko scored the Tigers' first goals in four games.

Michael Hector fouled substitute Kamara in the area soon after the break and the Frenchman blasted in the penalty.

And in the final moments he placed a shot just inside the post after patient build-up play to rescue a point.

Nigel Adkins has failed to guide Hull to a win in any of his last four games in charge - the only victory since his tenure began was the 3-2 win at Brentford three weeks ago.

The Tigers remain in 19th place, but are now only two points off the drop zone, while Fulham drop to 12th.

The two goals were the highlight of an otherwise dull first period, with Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic bringing on Kamara and Neeskens Kebano for Sheyi Ojo and Floyd Ayite five minutes before the break.

The change had the desired effect - the opening goal was followed by Steven Sessegnon and Kebano going close before Kamara's late leveller.

Hull head coach Nigel Adkins:

"I thought the first half was exceptional. We've gone 2-0 up, we could have been more.

"We started the second half well - their keeper made a good save from Nouha - and lo and behold one of our defenders has given a stupid penalty away and that changed the complexion of the game for me.

"You look at the league table and we need to get another 10 victories to make sure we're in the division again next year."

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic:

"I made substitutions because I can change all my 11 players. We didn't start the game so I tried to get a shock reaction.

"It's not a question about Sheyi Ojo playing a bad football game or Ayite. Both players played very well the last two games.

"It was my mistake. I am thinking before they scored the first goal, do something and try and get some reaction, but I didn't do enough fast. Fortunately these changes gave us some sort of shock."
