Everton were left frustrated at Goodison as Hull City fought back to grab a 1-1 draw.

The evening had started in promising fashion when Romelu Lukaku fired the Blues into a half-time advantage with his sixth goal of the campaign.

But they were denied by Sone Aluko who stepped off the bench to earn the visitors a point and put an end to their four-match losing streak.

Everton had more possession throughout but they struggled to find a second goal in the final half-hour after Hull’s leveller.

It was difficult for the Blues for most of the evening and they found it tough to break down the disciplined defence of Steve Bruce’s side.


The contest had started in subdued fashion and a snap-shot from Lukaku, which was comfortably clutched by Allan McGregor was the only chance of note in the opening quarter of an hour.

The Blues raised their game as the first half ticked on. Mirallas saw a free-kick from distance held low down by McGregor who again did well to well to save a back-heel from Leon Osman – the only player to come into the Everton side from the one named at Tottenham three days earlier.

Although the Toffees weren’t quite implementing the full stylish passing game that has become associated under Roberto Martinez, they were value for their opener, scored by Lukaku on 34 minutes.

The Blues’ two Belgians combined for the goals in Wolfsburg the previous Thursday – and they were at it again. Mirallas skilfully beat Michael Dawson on the byline and cut it back for Lukaku who, despite having to stretch, powered it home from 12 yards out in front of the Park End.

Everton very nearly had another in the next attack. Muhamed Besic, on his third successive start, went close to netting his maiden goal for the Club with an effort from the edge of the area that was curled fractionally past the post.


Hull, who had lost their previous four matches before heading to Goodison, offered very little before the break as they set up compactly. Former Blue Nikica Jelavic’s header, steered well wide of the target, was the closest they got.

But the visitors started the second period with much more purpose. Once Mirallas had chipped narrowly over the crossbar for the Blues shortly after the restart, Aluko was introduced and it was he who levelled matters on the hour mark.

The substitute found space for himself in the right channel, twisted past Sylvain Distin and guided his finish past Howard from a tight angle.

Jelavic then planted a header wide and Tom Huddlestone fired over as Hull gained some extra belief following the equaliser.

Everton never really responded from that setback. Despite seeing the majority of the ball in the final third of the game they were kept at arm’s length by Hull.

Wide-men Steven Pienaar and Aiden McGeady were introduced from the bench by Martinez but there was no second goal, even with the help of six minutes of stoppage time.

The draw leaves Everton occupying 11th position in the table heading into Saturday’s trip to Manchester City.
