Noah Ohio's late winner earned a huge 3-2 victory for Hull City to keep their hopes of making the Championship play-offs alive and all but ending those of Coventry City in a pulsating contest,

A dominant first half saw City take the lead through Jaden Philogene only to concede moments later with the hosts' first effort on target when Kasey Palmer slammed in a free-kick, but the Tigers regained their deserved lead on the stroke of the break when Fabio Carvalho slammed in a penalty after Liam Delap was fouled.

Coventry made it 2-2 early in the second half when Bobby Thomas headed in the net but back came the Tigers to lead for a third time when Noah Ohio came off the bench to force the ball home with just over 10 minutes to go.

Here's how Tigers reporter Barry Cooper rated the players at the CBS Arena on Wednesday evening....

Ryan Allsop: Well beaten for the opening goal but will perhaps wonder if he could have got closer to Thomas' headed equaliser. Made a big save in stoppage time. 7/10

Matty Jacob: A decent, solid performance from the City left-back. Unfortunate with the equalising goal. Sacrificed late on after the second. 7/10

Jacob Greaves: Probably should have done better with an early chance but blazed over. Booked in the first half before brilliantly taking the ball off Wright inside the box. Huge display in stoppage time. 8/10

Alfie Jones: Alongside Greaves, had to do some serious work in the second half but toughed it out. 7/10

Regan Slater: Continued at right-back and had plenty to occupy himself with all night, but stood up to the task well. Angled an effort at goal late on. 7/10

Tyler Morton: Blazed over early on from Philogene's cross and then picked up what looked very harsh booking before the break. Sacrificed in the second period with the game on a knife-edge. 6/10

Jean Michael Seri: Controlled things in the first half, and regained that control in the second half of the second period with his experience. 7/10

Abdus Omur: Tested the goalkeeper with an early effort. Busy throughout as we've come to expect from the little magician. Couldn't impact things as much in the second. 7/10

Jaden Philogene: Lively in the first half and scored a fine goal to put his side a goal up. Bizarrely booked after the penalty goal. Did his fair share of work going towards his own goal, too. 7.5/10

Liam Delap: Back in from the start for the first time since New Year's Day, and looked a real menace. Won the penalty, and it was no surprise to see him win it, so direct and powerful was he. Tired in the second half as you'd expect, but what a terrific first start in months. 7.5/10

Fabio Carvalho: Knitted everything together in a dominant first period, and stayed calm to slam in the penalty. Worked himself into the ground for the cause. 8/10


Lewie Coyle (on for Morton 60): Thrown on right after the second equalising goal and boy was his experience needed in those nervy final moments. 7/10

Ryan Giles (on for Jacob 69): Did what he needed to do in the final stages as City came under heavy fire. 7/10

Ozan Tufan (on for Delap 77): Came on with Ohio and the pair made a difference immediately. His fresh legs, his tenacity were key in the final moments. 7/10

Noah Ohio (on for Omur 77): Instant impact, his sheer determination and perseverance to force the ball into the back of Collins' net. Super-sub indeed. 8/10
