Have your say

Eldin Jakupovic produced a late penalty save as Hull City claimed a point on their trip to Southampton in the Premier League.

The Yorkshire Post's chief football writer Richard Sutcliffe has rated the performances from the Hull squad.

Jakupovic 7 - Wonderful penalty save to deny Tadic in the 90th minute meant the City keeper was the hero of the day.

Elmohamady 6 - Stuck to his task at right back but the Egyptian’s usual threatening delivery in attack was missing.

Maguire 7 - Vital block on Sofiane Boufal typified another tireless shift from the City captain. Later booked for crude tackle.

Ranocchia 7 - Tower of strength at the back for the Tigers once again.

Robertson 6 - Some nervy moments from the left back that put his team-mates in danger at vital times.

Markovic 6 - Tricky player who caused Saints problems but, in common with many in black, was unable to find the quality to create a goal.

Clucas 7 - Plenty of endeavour but almost cost Hull dear with a shocking pass straight to Dusan Radic to start a move that ended with Steven Davis firing over.

N’Diaye 7 - Involved throughout and put in a big shift but needlessly handed Saints a penalty when tugging Yoshida to the ground for the penalty.

Grosicki 6 - Unfortunate to see his early curled free-kick strike the post and then bounce to safety.

Evandro 6 - Playing just off Niasse, he struggled to find that killer pass to unlock the home defence.

Niasse 5 -Starved of decent service for long periods as the lone frontman but missed a great chance six minutes from time.


Henriksen (for Evandro 72) 7 - Had a shot blocked and then set up great late chance for Niasse.

Huddlestone (for Grosicki 83) - Neat and tidy, lovely pass to release Henriksen late on.

Dawson (for Markovic 89) - Not enough time to make an impression
