Player Ratings: Hull City 1-1 Middlesbrough
Sam Ricketts (7) - Struggled defensively, particularly early on, but contributed at other times.
Andy Dawson (8) - Had a very good game, solid defensively and did well with playing some balls down the line.
Danny Coles (7) - Made at least one important tackle one-on-one. Probably out for Delaney next week though.
Michael Turner (8) - Looks like he's adding some consistency to his game and proving he can be a useful player.
Ryan France (8) - At last, Ryan France went at players and threatened in the attack! Made things happen. Is suited to the right-midfield position.
Ian Ashbee (7) - Poor pass selections at time, either playing the wrong ball or misplacing it. Still battled well though and took responsibility in the middle of the park, getting a lot of the ball in space.
David Livermore (7) - Perfect delivery for the goal. Integral to the side.
Steve McPhee (6) - Worked one half-chance for himself in the first half, which shows he does have the ability, but without his fitness and pace he's a shadow of the player he could be. Especially after he'd got treatment, he didn't look like he was reaching top gear and getting into his stride as much he needed to.
Jon Parkin (6) - Still completely lacking in fitness, though it's less of a part of his game than it is of McPhee's so he can still have some effect.
Stuart Elliott (6) - Unlucky with a looping header that Jones put out for a corner in the first half. Otherwise, didn't threaten very much.
Darryl Duffy (7) - Played with his head up, unlike his pre-Hartlepool performances.
Nicky Forster (7) - This goal alone has paid off a lot of what we've spent on him by earning us a replay at Middlesbrough.
Nicky Featherstone (N/A) - Almost got a longer run out 'til the equaliser prompted Brown to hold him back from coming on.
