Hull City 1-1 Blackpool: Tom Eaves leveller earns point for struggling Tigers

Tom Eaves rescued a draw for Championship strugglers Hull City with a late equaliser against Blackpool.

Shayne Lavery met Demetri Mitchell's chip to the edge of the six-yard box with a smartly-taken volley to put the Tangerines ahead.

City looked to be heading for a fourth straight defeat when Lewie Coyle was sent off for a second yellow card for hauling down Lavery.

But Keane Lewis-Potter picked out substitute Eaves who smashed a shot into the roof of the net.

The night almost got even better for Grant McCann's 10 men, but Blackpool goalkeeper Chris Maxwell dived full-length to keep out Tyler Smith's low drive and deny Hull a second win of the season.
