URUGUAYAN HAS NO SIGN OF JET LAG
Abel Hernandez has travelled some 14,000 miles this week to play for his country but his blistering form meant Steve Bruce could not let him rest.
The decision to start the Uruguayan proved a sound one as he scored his sixth goal in nine matches to earn the Tigers a valuable point against a Sheffield Wednesday side also enjoying good form. Carlos Carvalhal’s hosts are now unbeaten in their last six in all competitions and, after Fernando Forestieri’s opening goal after 28 minutes, had chances to kill off their visitors but a point apiece was about right. Both sets of fans ended the afternoon with something to cheer, basking in the misfortune of referee Keith Stroud, who hobbled off the pitch in stoppage time after wandering into the path of City forward Chuba Akpom at full speed.
Akpom had a real impact on the game as a whole as he proved to be the catalyst for City’s turnaround and the visitors could have won it late on.
