Hull City v Sheffield Wednesday

But who were the bright sparks and who drew a blank? let’s take a look at the ratings from the KCOM.

Had a point to prove after missing out on international selection earlier in the day. Back to his best coming for crosses after an early fumble and made a great save from Grosicki late on.
He's growing into his defensive responsibilities under Monk. Dealt admirably with the threat of Grosicki with a couple of exceptions.

Visibly full of confidence, but should have been closer to Eaves for Hull's goal. Stamped out danger on a handful of occasions and was otherwise strong in the air.
Good again. Looks a more and more astute signing with every passing minute in a Wednesday shirt. His partnership with Iorfa has blossomed.
Liam Palmer did what Liam Palmer does. Solid in defence, he kept Bowen quiet and contributed smartly to the attack when the time was right.
A quieter evening for Reach after a blistering return to form on Saturday. He wasn't afforded the space he was at Middlesbrough. Battled hard as ever but wasted a golden injury time chance.
Picked up a needless yellow card and will now miss Saturday's clash with Wigan. Made some important interceptions but the game passed him by a touch.
Bright in moments but failed to deliver the knockout ball. The delivery from set pieces wasn't at its sparkling best, but he was the best of a midfield that looked a little lethargic.
For the first time in a Wednesday shirt, ineffective. Looked leggy and failed to beat his man on many occasions. Taken off for a rest after an hour for Murphy.
Struggled with little service and failed to get into the game. One or two handsome knockdowns but largely sluggish with his feet.
Handed another chance to impress in the absence of Fletcher, Winnall missed two golden chances to put the Owls ahead. Failed to click with Nuhiu. Subbed for Rhodes late on.
Replaced Harris on the hour and had some lively moments, drawing a number of fouls. Created a golden chance for Reach in the dying moments.
