Highlights from the Sky Bet Championship match between Hull City and West Bromwich.

West Brom remain one place above Hull in the Sky Bet Championship play-offs following their disciplined 1-1 draw at the MKM Stadium.

Liam Rosenior's in-form side had looked on course to move up to fifth in the table when Fabio Carvalho scored a lovely swerving goal from distance after 35 minutes.

But the visitors, who are next week expected to be taken over by Floridian businessman Shilen Patel, deservedly equalised before the break through Darnell Furlong's downwards header.

Neither side had the artillery to force a winner - though Rosenior and West Brom manager Carlos Corberan might both be happy with a point as both sides struck a post late on.

A subdued start, during which both teams failed to find their offensive rhythm, saw West Brom perhaps looking the slightly more controlled side but continually giving away possession in promising areas of the pitch.

That was until the 20th minute when Tom Fellows hared down Hull's right channel before sending a low cross towards Jed Wallace. His instinctive strike hit the crossbar, with Alex Mowatt's attempt from the rebound pawed to safety by goalkeeper Ryan Allsop.

Fabio Carvalho hammers home a stunning effort to put Hull City into the lead against West Brom.

Hull, who had won their last three games, finally stepped up a gear four minutes later.

Anass Zaroury cut inside from the left and let rip with a fierce long-range hit that was well stopped by goalkeeper Alex Palmer.

Carvalho was similarly positioned for the opening goal, but the Liverpool loan signing's dipping strike was far more emphatic. Palmer might have done better at his near post, but West Brom were also guilty of failing to react to Zaroury's quick corner.

Baggies fans might have feared the worst as their side had not won when conceding first in the Championship this season.

Darnell Furlong finds the equaliser for West Brom at Hull with a flicked header from a corner.

But hope soon reasserted itself in the away end when Furlong equalised after 43 minutes.

Jaden Philogene was too slow to adjust to the zip of Wallace's corner, with Furlong's header thumping into the turf, over Allsop's head and into the left corner.

The start to the second half mirrored that of the first, with neither Hull nor West Brom doing enough to force to the issue.

Rosenior's men saw more of the ball as the game wore on but well-drilled opponents were rarely flustered until Philogene slinked into a central position after 79 minutes.

The influential winger's screwed hit from 18 yards had Palmer beaten, but the ball hit the base of the right post and Carvalho wastefully fired the rebound over.

West Brom also hit the woodwork two minutes later when Adam Reach's well-directed effort struck the inside of the left post after substitute Regan Slater had given the ball away in an awful area. Mikey Johnston followed up from the right but Allsop saved his scuffed effort with his right boot.

The clast chance disappeared with Albion substitute Andi Weimann's feeble chip straight at Allsop, ensuring a share of the spoils.

Liam Rosenior says his team has to keep learning after Hull struggled to find a winning goal after West Brom sneaked in an equaliser.

Hull's Liam Rosenior:

"I just want to win every game that we play, but if you can't win, don't lose - it doesn't matter at what stage of the season.

"We put ourselves in a strong position against a really organised team, but these games are about fine margins.

"We are a young team but with two minutes before half-time we should have kicked the ball out into touch - and then we conceded a corner.

"That period between Fabio's goal and their goal, we were in control of the game, but in football it is about managing moments and we didn't do that, which was frustrating.

"We just need to learn from the mistakes, but I can't fault players in terms of engagement, energy levels and commitment.

"If that continues, I think we're in a really strong position."

West Brom boss Carlos Corberan says his side's 1-1 draw to Hull City was a 'fair result'.

West Brom's Carlos Corberan:

"A point was the fair result for what both teams created on the pitch. We both had similar types of chances and a similar number of chances. When you don't win the game, it's important not to lose.

"I think that the quality of players Hull has right now made it difficult for us and we needed to concentrate in defence to get something.

"Our defence was key to getting something out of the game, but we need to improve in two key parts: don't concede possession and create chances."
