Burnley was left still searching for their first home win of the season as they produced one of the close football scores of the midweek action in the Championship. Ozan Tufan opened the scoring for the visitors in the 25th minute before Jay Rodrguez equalized for the hosts in the 34th minute. Hull missed a chance to go to the top of the table with the result.
Burnley’s Vincent Kompany: “A big part [of any signings] for us depends on the fitness of players but we are not in a position where we can just afford to store players, so we have to make sure we are really smart in how we do things and that might come with a bit more versatility in the squad, where players can play one or two positions.”
“We can’t afford to spend and leave players on the bench doing nothing. If you want to see the doomsday Sunderland scenario you have to do exactly that. Everyone knows with J-Rod they will have to bear with us as we have to manage him. He is a special player for us as he has a real goal threat but also has this quality on the ball. He seems to me to be really enjoying his game, at times it’s like having a 22-year-old player there, watching and drinking in everything that you say.”
Hull’s Shota Arveladze: “We had three or four clear-cut chances. It’s not easy to come here – this team creates by having ball possession. If you see their central defense, their backs, their wingers, they are all made to keep the ball. I don’t think many clubs have a better possession game than the home side, so it was a really tough, important point for us.”
