Middlesbrough 1-2 Hull: Liam Rosenior's side stage second-half comeback as Liam Delap and Ozan Tufan both score to send the Tigers into play-off contention

Hull showed battling qualities which may well lead to a play-off challenge as Liam Delap and Ozan Tufan goals stunned Middlesbrough.

Trailing to Emmanuel Latte Lath’s early strike, the Tigers had been second-best in the first-half before clawing their way back into the contest.

When Tyler Morton’s 69th-minute corner was flicked on by Jacob Greaves, Delap found himself completely unmarked to thud home a close-range header.

If that was a frustrating goal to concede for Michael Carrick’s side, things would get even worse when Tufan swept home from fellow substitute Greg Docherty’s ball eight minutes form time.
