For the second game in three days Noah Ohio stepped off the bench to score a vital goal for Hull City to earn a point in a 3-3 draw against Ipswich Town on a sensational night in front of a capacity MKM Stadium crowd.

A thrilling first half played at break-neck speed saw the visitors go in front early when George Hirst took advantage of Tyler Morton's error to slam home, before Ozan Tufan levelled up just before the break, but City looked edgy in the final moments before half-time and Omari Hutchinson curled in on the stroke of the break.

City made it 2-2 through half-time arrival Liam Delap to give the hosts hope of victory only to see them fail to pick up Hutchinson again and he bent another in the far corner, but Ohio came off the bench to rattle in his third Tigers goal.

Here's how Tigers reporter Barry Cooper rated the players for the final time at the MKM Stadium this season on Saturday evening....

Ryan Allsop: Turned a Sam Morsy shot away early on, could do little about either goal in fairness nor the third. Made two or three big saves in the contest to keep his side in with a chance. 8/10

Matty Jacob: A couple of big early headers away inside the opening 10 minutes and then popped up with a towering header late on which saw Ohio fire in after his header was saved. 7/10

Jacob Greaves: A topsy-turvey game and Greaves again played his part against one of the Championship's most lethal attacks. 7/10

Alfie Jones: Got away with one early on and then couldn't get close enough to Hirst's shot. A tough night for both him and Greaves but made his fair share of blocks and tackles late on. 7/10

Regan Slater: Pinned back by Davis for much of the first period, did try to get forward as much as possible. Replaced in the second half for Giles in the final 10 minutes. 7/10

Tyler Morton: Crunching early challenge on Chaplin which earned a big roar from the home fans. Crucially, missed his clearance and Hirst punished him and City. Sacrificed at the break for Liam Delap. 6/10

Jean Michael Seri: Couldn't get close enough to Burns who fired in the cross for the opener. Won the ball off Morsy to feed Tufan for City's opener. Never stopped all night. 7/10

Abdus Omur: Battled really hard in the first period and put in one delicious cross at the other end. Another tireless display, perhaps ran out of gas in struggling to get out to Hutchinson. 7/10

Jaden Philogene: Showed glimpses in the first period, didn't get out quickly enough to stop Hutchinson's shot. Kept plugging away all evening. 7/10

Ozan Tufan: Rattled in the equalising goal with a really calm finish and run the forward lines really well. Twice headed over at the start of the second period. 7/10

Fabio Carvalho: Plenty of energy in the first half but couldn't impact the game as he'd have liked. Booked at the end of the first half through frustration after seeing his side concede a second. 6/10


Liam Delap (on for Morton 46): Back on the scoresheet with a fine finish at the near post from Carvalho's perfect cross. A proper striker's finish. 8/10

Noah Ohio (on for Omur 73): Good run down the far side and forced a smart save from the goalkeeper and then scored the equaliser. 8/10

Ryan Giles (on for Slater 81): On in the closing stages and tried to get forward as much as he could but struggled with Ipswich pushing. 6/10
