Michael Dawson scores for Hull
Michael Dawson beats keeper Nick Townsend to score his third goal of the season for Hull

Michael Dawson salvaged a point for Hull City in their game against fellow Championship strugglers Barnsley.

Dawson was in the right place to volley home from a corner to deny Barnsley a second away win in four days.

Striker Oli McBurnie had headed the visitors in front from Brad Potts' cross - his fourth goal in four games.

Barnsley centre-back Adam Jackson was stretchered off after a collision with Jon Toral which caused a lengthy stoppage at the end of the first half.

The draw left the two sides 20th and 21st in the table, with Hull three points clear of the relegation zone - and one place and one point above Jose Morais' Tykes.

Both sides went into the game looking to achieve back-to-back wins for the first time this season and after a couple of Hull half-chances, it was Barnsley who went in front when McBurnie was left unmarked to give Allan McGregor no chance.

The incident involving Toral and Jackson - who suffered a knee injury against Hull in October which put him out for four months - saw both players have to go off, with the Barnsley defender regaining consciousness after being taken off the pitch.

After the hold-up, it was Hull who emerged the stronger side in the second half, with a header from Angus MacDonald, playing against his former club, kept out by keeper Nick Townsend, who also saved from Jarrod Bowen and Nouha Dicko, but he could do nothing with Dawson's effort, the defender's first goal since December.

Hull manager Nigel Adkins told BBC Radio Humberside:

"We were looking for all three points. We didn't reach the heights we reached on Friday in the first half.

"We've gifted them a goal and they've had something to hang onto. They've put everyone behind the ball and it's up to us to break them down.

"We've had enough opportunities in and around the box - we've had 17 shots on goal - but it was captain Dawson who's scored the all-important goal."

Barnsley boss Jose Morais told BBC Radio Leeds:

"We came for three points. We played a very good first half and were unlucky to lose one of our central defenders. For that reason we did a substitution we didn't want to so early.

"But we kept good balance. In the first half we created a lot of chances. We had a lot of good situations to score.

"It was a fantastic goal and a creative situation that gave us the lead in the game and for that reason we really deserved our advantage."
