The final whistle goes and it is a point apiece following an entertaining 1-1 draw, with Paulinho's equaliser cancelling out Long's opener. Both sides should be satisfied with a draw as Hull had the better of the first half before Tottenham came back strongly.
Hull win a free-kick just outside the area, wide on the right, and Huddlestone unleashes a powerful cross which just needs a touch as it travels through a crowded area, but none is forthcoming.
Tottenham's first change of the afternoon sees Adebayor, who has picked up a slight knock, replaced by Kane.
Hull's strikers have linked up really well today and Long plays in Jelavic with another clever pass, but Lloris dives low to his left to pull off a solid save.
Boyd gives away a needless free-kick n Tottenham's right-hand side following a clumsy challenge on Lennon, but Spurs cannot take advantage.
The assistant referee's flag goes up for a foul by Long on Rose near the byline, meaning that it does not count as the Hull striker squares it for Jelavic to tap into an empty net.
Lloris has another rush of blood to the head as he runs off his line and gets in the way of Vertonghen, but there is no Hull player there to capitalise and Tottenham scramble it away.
Hull waste the chance to deliver an effective free-kick as Boyd's inswinging cross from out wide on the right sails beyond everyone in the centre and out of pay.
Tottenham are looking the more likely winners just at the moment as they earn another free-kick in a decent area, 25 yards from goal. It is teed up for Vertonghen and his swerving strike flies wide to the left.
Bentaleb tries his luck with a volley from the edge of the box and it is a well-struck effort which fizzes narrowly wide of Harper's left-hand post.
The match is really stretching from end to end, as Eriksen takes a shot from 20 yards which is deflected and bounces nicely into the arms of Harper.
Koren releases Jelavic and Lloris crazily comes rushing off his line to try and reach the ball first. He does not manage to make the block and Jelavic pokes it past him towards goal, but Dawson is retreating quickly enough to clear and boots it behind.
Adebayor is terrorising the Hull defence just at the moment with some strong running and Lennon and Paulinho are also looking much more lively, but Davies has been a rock at the back for Hull and makes a wonderful clearance in the six-yard area to keep the score level.
It is becoming a really exciting game now as Tottenham find some fluency and look for a second, but Hull also remain dangerous on the counter-attack.
OFF THE POST. Long wonderfully picks out Jelavic at the back post with a clever turn and pass, but it is a tight angle and his fellow striker can only direct his effort against the woodwork, with Lloris also there to help foil Hull.
GOAL! Paulinho equalises for Tottenham with a stunning moment of quality. The way it comes to the Brazilian is slightly fortunate as Rose appears to try his luck with a shot from 30 yards, but it is straight at Pauinho and he controls the ball brilliantly, turning exquisitely before powerfully scoring from just inside the area.
The referee pulls Meyer aside for a conversation following a challenge on Bentaleb which leaves the Spurs midfielder down and his team-mates angry. Again, there is no yellow card, but replays show it was a really poor tackle and he is lucky to escape punishment.
Always happy to advance beyond the edge of his area, Lloris comes sprinting out to deal with a long pass and heads it clear before Long can latch on.
Long and Jelavic are working hard for the team as they track back and support the defence, with Hull looking compact and hard to break down.
Tottenham are finally starting to mount some sustained pressure as they win a free-kick in a threatening area, but Eriksen's low strike is blocked by a sea of defenders.
Eriksen is thwarted by a fine save from Harper at his near post after the ball had ricocheted kindly for the Tottenham playmaker, and the keeper does well from the corner to punch clear.
Davies has done a great job against Adebayor so far, and again shows excellent awareness to nip in and take the ball before the Spurs striker.
Eriksen has not found his shooting range yet today, as he smashes a poor effort high and wide from distance.
Adebayor and Eriksen combine well as Spurs launch one of their quickest breaks of the afternoon, but Eriksen is then barged over as Soldado looks to flick on the next short pass and a free-kick is given.
Jelavic shows good strength to shrug off his defender out wide and then drives towards goal, before his attempted cross is intercepted by Dawson.
Dawson slides in with a good tackle on Long, as Tottenham come under the cosh from a dominant home side.
Elmohamady heads another poor clearance from Lloris back for Jelavic, but he is coming back from an offside position and the flag goes up to spare the Spurs keeper.
Bentaleb concedes a free-kick in midfield following a high boot on Meyler, as Spurs again struggle to get going at the start of the second half.
Tottenham kick us off in the second half and they need to improve significantly to get back into this game. There have been no changes at the break.
The half-time whistle goes and there is warm applause from the home fans as Hull go into the break with a deserved 1-0 lead thanks to Long's well-taken early goal. Spurs have had a lot of possession but have rarely troubled Harper in Hull's goal.
Jelavic jumps into Vertonghen and is spoken to by referee Taylor, but he decides to keep his yellow card in his pocket.
Eriksen wriggles away from a couple of tackles in midfield before charging towards goal on a direct run and letting off a shot from 20 yards which sails over Harper's goal.
Rosenior cuts inside Rose nicely before attempting an overly ambitious pass which skips straight through for Lloris to gather safely.
Soldado is seeing plenty of the ball today and he drives into the box before tamely having a shot which is easily blocked.
Jelavic steps up to take the free-kick and it is a fabulous effort which leaves Lloris rooted to the spot in the middle of his goal as it dips over the wall and agonisingly wide of the post. So close to a second Hull goal.
Dawson appears to win the ball as he challenges Long but the crowd reacts as if it is a foul and the referee agrees, awarding free-kick in a central area about 25 yards from goal.
Tottenham have created very little but they have had a few set-pieces in promising positions, with Soldado volleying wide from a corner on this occasion.
Soldado is desperate for a penalty as he goes down, claiming that he has been fouled by Figueroa, but replays show that the referee was correct to wave play on.
Long is understandably annoyed as he is shoved in the back by Walker but does not get the decision in his favour, with referee Taylor instead speaking to the Hull man for throwing the ball away in anger.
Elmohamady is okay to carry on and has played his part in a disciplined performance by Hull so far, with Tottenham looking sluggish.
Elmohamady stays down after a seemingly innocuous aerial challenge and points to his side as the physio comes on to administer treatment.
Pauinho and Lennon link up well for Spurs before Eriksen sends in an inviting cross towards Adebayor at the back post, but Elmohamady is alert and makes a vital interception.
Jelavic picks up a knock as he is beaten to the ball by Walker and just appears to jar his knee as he hurdles the challenge, but the hull striker will be fine to continue.
Harper comes out flapping at a Rose cross and Hull make a meal of clearing their lines, ultimately giving Tottenham a corner.
Lennon has half a chance to get a shot away as the Hull defence momentarily opens up before him, but he dwells on the ball for just too long and the danger opportunity passes.
Lloris' distribution has been poor so far this afternoon and he kicks another long pass straight out of play, much to his obvious frustration.
Long again looks to use his pace to exploit a high line from Tottenham, but does not quite get his run right and is flagged offside.
Long seems to fancy his chances against Dawson as he is played in down the left wing by Brady, but the experienced Tottenham defender closes him down quickly and ushers the ball back to Lloris.
There is nothing wrong with being patient in possession but Tottenham are being too slow in building their attacks just at the moment and Hull look well organised at the back.
Rose is sent tumbling in the Hull area but there are no appeals for a penalty, as Davies had slid in with a well-timed challenge to take the ball and concede a corner.
Long's speed causes more problems for Spurs and he delights the crows with an extravagant dummy to help Hull win a corner.
The KC Stadium faithful are in great voice now as they celebrate their first league goal of the season, and with their solid defence it will be tough for Spurs now to find a way back.
GOAL! Long fires Hull into a 1-0 lead. It is route one stuff as Harper boots a long ball to his attackers and Jelavic helps to flick it into the path of Long, who shows great pace before slotting a classy finish past Lloris to give the hosts an early advantage.
Tottenham suddenly explode into life with a sweeping attack, but Adebayor's powerful volley is acrobatically tipped away by Harper.
Huddlestone delivers a sumptuous ball in to the centre for Jelavic to attack, and his looping shot drops just over the crossbar and on to the roof of the net, with a scrambling Lloris beaten.
Lennon does well to keep the ball in play with an improvised back-heel which is intended for Eriksen on the left wing, but like most of Tottenham's passes in the opening ten minutes, it goes straight to a Hull player.
Tottenham have not found any fluency at all yet and, when they do win the ball, Hull are very quick to stifle them in possession.
Hull have started on the front foot and look threatening here as Brady bursts into the box before driving a shot, slightly off-balance, high and wide from a tight angle.
Hull are without a Premier League goal so far in 2014 and Long and Jelavic are still forging an understanding, unable to combine on this occasion after some neat build-up in midfield.
A scrappy start to the game sees both sides struggle to keep hold of possession as a number of long passes go astray.
Hull get us started at the KC Stadium, and let us hope for an exciting encounter on what is an important day for both sides.
Harry from Sydney agrees that it will be tight: "I think with Hull playing with five at the back and with our recent lack of clear cut chances, this could be a frustrating away day. I can still see us taking all three points, but I'll take Spurs 1-0 with Soldado finally showing some real promise. Fingers crossed."
Mike from Holbeach is anticipating a tricky game for Tottenham, saying: "Potential banana skin for Spurs, hope they have the quality to come through. Spurs to snatch a 2-1 win."
David Newman says: "How we could have done with Vertongen and Paulinho on Wednesday evening. They are two signings who have actually proved their worth. The away team for today is more attacking than the home team on Wednesday and I am looking for Tottenham to continue their excellent away record with a 2-1 or 3-1 win. Soldado to score."
Matthew Joyce writes: "I have been a spurs fan all my life and I believe they will win!! Hoping for a 2-0 win for Spurs."
Jamie from Milton Keynes is the first to get in touch, saying: "Going for a Spurs 3-1 win with Ade getting a brace - COYS."
Tottenham are also looking to return to winning ways after a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City on Wednesday halted a fine run of form under new boss Tim Sherwood. Spurs had won their previous four matches and are still fifth in the standings, so if they can claim victory today they will be back level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool.
Hull: Harper, Elmohamady, Davies, McShane, Figueroa, Rosenior, Meyler, Huddlestone, Brady, Jelavic, Long. Subs: Bruce, Koren, Fryatt, Jakupovic, Boyd, Sagbo, Quinn.
Tottenham: Lloris, Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Rose, Lennon, Bentaleb, Paulinho, Eriksen, Adebayor, Soldado. Subs: Kaboul, Capoue, Naughton, Chadli, Sigurdsson, Friedel, Kane.
Hull had looked to be in a secure mid-table position just a few weeks ago, but they have now been dragged into a scrap for survival following a run of four straight defeats, most recently a 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace in midweek. It has become so congested in the bottom half that nobody has been cut adrift yet but up to 11 teams are still in danger of the drop, with Steve Bruce's Tigers currently just four points clear.
