Swansea and Hull City took a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw at the Liberty Stadium in a game which saw Danny Graham finally end his 11 month goal drought.

Hull will be the happier of the two sides due to their shocking away form and having to endure some intense Swansea pressure.

It took former Swansea player Graham seven minutes on his return to his former stomping ground to get on the scoresheet. A misplaced pass by Ashley Williams allowed Ahmed Elmohamady to maraud forward on the right flank before firing in a superb cross which found Graham at the back post who neatly volleyed past Gerhard Tremmel amid muted celebrations.

Swansea were fortunate to find the leveller in the second-half with replays showing Chico used his arm to flick the ball into the net following a drilled cross by Jonjo Shelvey. Steve Bruce and Hull can feel further hard done by when Dwight Tiendalli used his hands to block an Alex Bruce header in the 69th minute.

David Meyler thought he had gotten on the scoresheet once more following his strike against Liverpool after Robert Koren had headed him in before he slotted into the net. Any celebrations were abruptly stopped when the Irishman realised the offside flag had been raised.

The home side enjoyed the vast majority of the possession but were far from their clinical best but credit must be given to the Tigers backline who dealt with everything the Swans threw at them.
