However, the two interventions from Hull's strike partnership ensured that the spoils were shared.
Here, Sports Mole looks back over the contest to determine if the result was a fair one.

Was the result fair?
You'd be hard pushed (unless you support either of these teams) to argue that one of these sides deserved to leave with all three points. They were equally as bad as each other during the first half, while after the restart both had dominant spells and created openings. All in all, a draw was a fair outcome.
When the onus was on them during the first half to attack, Fulham were lacking. A lot of that has to be put down to Felix Magath and his team selection because Hugo Rodallega was isolated up front. During the second half, Magath atoned by bringing on Dejagah, Kieran Richardson and Darren Bent, which resulted in some more potent attacks. Sadly for them, though, they become nervous and once Hull scored the first goal, they sensed blood. After that, the defensive frailties that have hampered them all season rose to the surface.
After 60 minutes, Steve Bruce will not have been a happy manager. His side had played some nice football, but there was no end product. However, all of a sudden they sprung into life, hitting the woodwork on two occasions before the goals eventually arrived. As the game drew to a close, the visitors looked more likely to score the winner, but it didn't materialise. Nevertheless, having been two goals down, Bruce is likely to be delighted with a point that all but secures their status in the Premier League.
Sports Mole's man of the match
Tom Huddlestone: In what was a match in which no player truly stood out, Huddlestone was at least easy on the eye. His passing was often accurate and positive, while he also weighed in with a few crucial tackles in midfield.
The Fulham defence can share this award for the space that they afforded Long to score the equalising goal. The Hull striker stood all alone inside the penalty area, before darting to the back post, unmarked, to head in from close range.
Hull felt that they should have had a penalty during the first half, but it was a difficult call for Lee Mason. Aside from that, he had a very positive afternoon, which included him letting the play to continue and it resulted in Fulham scoring the opening goal.
Fulham: Next Saturday the West Londoners will travel up to the Britannia Stadium for a clash with Stoke City.
Hull: As for Hull, they are also on the road, with Aston Villa their destination.
