Hunt: Equalising penalty

Dundee United and Hibernian remain level on points in the SPL table following a 1-1 draw at Tannadice.

Dean Shiels' fine finish put the visitors ahead, but Noel Hunt's penalty shortly after ensured the spoils would be shared.

Both sides had chances early on with Hunt forcing Andrew McNeil to tip an effort over the bar while Martin Canning sent a glancing header just over.

The Tangerines finished the half in the ascendancy, but Willo Flood's long-range shot was tipped over while Mark De Vries' right-footed effort was comfortable for McNeil.

The deadlock was broken in the 57th minute when Hibs broke away and Shiels maintained his composure by rounding Lukasz Zaluska before slotting home.

However, The Tangerines were behind for just a few moments as Hunt levelled matters from the penalty sport after Thierry Gatheussi hauled down De Vries.

Hibs nearly bagged all three points but Abderaouf Zarabi's well-struck free kick floated just wide of Zaluska's far post.
