CITY staged a remarkable comeback at the KCOM Stadium in Hull on Saturday. Two goals down with just 22 minutes remaining, City looked dead and buried.

But goals from Aden Flint, Bobby Reid and Josh Brownhill saw City take all three points and return to winning ways.

The comeback was perhaps all the more incredible given the performance level of the team for the first hour of the game.

Aside from the first 15 minutes which was pretty even, City were second best to the home side in every department.

Our attempts at playing a patient passing game were simply not working and Hull were able to play through us with relative ease and create plenty of opportunities to score.

Hull’s opener came on 33 minutes when Bowen’s ball into the box evaded everyone and Campbell was able to bundle the ball home from close range. It was really poor defending from City.

Their second came just after the hour mark when the impressive Bowen fired in from close range.

City’s comeback began just a few minutes later when Eliasson’s free kick into the box was eventually smashed into the net by Flint. It was the big defender’s 5th goal of the campaign.

City were playing with urgency and began attacking in waves. It wasn’t long before the equaliser came.

Reid won a free kick on the edge of the penalty area and substitute Paterson’s delivery was knocked down into the path of Reid who poked the ball into the Hull net.

Then, with just a minute of normal time remaining Brownhill won the ball in a central position and drove forward.

The former Barnsley man then struck an unstoppable right-footed shot from 25 yards into the bottom corner of the goal to snatch all three points for City.

It was a memorable game and should give City great confidence going into a big home match with Middlesbrough this Saturday in a game that will be broadcast live on Sky (5.30pm).
