Elmohamady starts as Hull City split points with MK Dons
With promotion in their sights, Hull City failed to take all three points at home which would have brought the Tigers to second place in the Championship.
After not starting in most of Steve Bruce’s recent games, Ahmed Elmohamady returned to his eleven in Hull’s crucial match against MK Dons. A win for the Tigers would have meant a place in second, just one point ahead of Middlesbrough.
The first half began with equal pressure from both sides, with MK Dons fighting to keep their spot in the Championship. Having nothing to lose, it was a rather difficult match for Hull City.
With some action from Egypt international, Ahmed Elmohamady, the 28-year-old had a lot to prove to Steve Bruce in order to keep his spot in the starting XI.
Elmohamady was one of Hull’s star men, with numerous crosses from the right flank and a few corners won for his side.
The second half saw Dons find the back of the net just six minutes in, with Antony Kay placing a beautiful header past McGregor.
Hull were quick to respond as Sam Clucas, a summer signing for Hull, equalised for the Tigers to make it 1-1.
The match went on with Hull finding it difficult to create any chances, and ended up leaving with only one point.
Hull City now stay in third place, with 66 points – two points behind Middlesbrough.
