A stunning late goal from Billy Paynter secured a 2-2 draw for Hull at Crewe.

After a lively opening, Crewe took the lead on 19 minutes through Eddie Johnson, drilling a low shot into the corner of the goal from 20 yards.

The Tigers came back strongly, and equalised after 33 minutes, Craig Fagan slotting home from six yards.

Crewe regained their advantage before half-time, Gary Roberts finishing coolly after being set up by David Vaughan (41).

In the second half Hull fought back hard, and Stuart Green and Paynter both went close from distance.

At the other end The Railwaymen came close to extending their lead, Steve Jones and Roberts both shooting narrowly wide.

Just when it seemed Crewe would hold on for a valuable three points, Paynter collected the ball 25 yards from goal and smashed his shot into the top corner (80).
