With the Owls trailing on 82 minutes, substitute Jacob Murphy drew a foul from Tigers defender Eric Lichaj that referee Andy Davies adjudged to be outside the box.

Hull boss Grant McCann later said Lichaj had admitted after the game that it was a penalty.

The injustice was not lost on many of Wednesdayites who took to social media to express their disgust at the decision.
