Stoke rescues 1-1 draw against 10-man Hull in Premier League after Shawcross scores late

  • Print

HULL, England - Stoke captain Ryan Shawcross bundled home from a late equalizer against 10-man Hull to claim a 1-1 draw in the Premier League on Sunday.

James Chester had been sent off after only 14 minutes but Hull appeared on course for an unlikely win after Nikica Jelavic's instinctive finish put the Tigers ahead in the 42nd.

Even with a man disadvantage, Hull, which beat Queens Park Rangers in its league opener, was the better side, outpassing and outworking a Stoke team that lacked direction.

But Stoke grabbed its first point of the season when Phil Bardsley's angled shot ricocheted off the inside of the post against goalkeeper Allan McGregor and was nudged over by Shawcross in the 84th.

The goal came from a Stoke throw-in which should have gone Hull's way.
