Shrewsbury Town 1-1 Hull City

League One leaders Hull had to settle for a point as midfielder Greg Docherty earned his side a draw at Shrewsbury.

Docherty levelled in the 62nd minute to quickly cancel out Matt Ingram's unfortunate own goal eight minutes before..

Salop's Shaun Whalley and Josh Vela were the only players to carve out chances in a woefully poor first half, in which the high-flying visitors failed to record a shot on target.

However, eight minutes into the second half the game got the spark it was craving courtesy of Shrewsbury defender Nathanael Ogbeta, whose thunderous free-kick crashed off the underside of the bar and went in off Hull keeper Ingram.

The goal breathed life into the clash and the visitors finally woke up, levelling soon after thanks to a long-range effort from former Shrewsbury player of the year Docherty.

Both sides went close to a winner, as Jacob Greaves headed wide for Hull and Ogbeta drew a late save from Ingram. But a goal never came to leave the Tigers three points clear at the top and Shrewsbury locked down in 17th.
