Where A 5-5 Draw Fits Into The Record Books.... - Hull City

Where A 5-5 Draw Fits Into The Record Books….

While the goals were flying in during Saturday's 5-5 draw at Ashton Gate, another couple of little marks were being made in the Club's record books.

As well as being the first time that the Tigers have scored five goals in consecutive away league games, following on from the 5-0 thrashing of Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium earlier this month, the scoreline also now stands as the highest-scoring league draw in our history.

Prior to last weekend, 4-4 had stood as the highest-scoring draw we had been involved in, a result achieved no fewer than eight times through the years:

 

13/2/1932: Hull City 4-4 Stockport County (Wainscoat 3, Duncan)

24/9/1932: Hull City 4-4 Stockport County (Davies 2, Hubbard, og)

29/3/1958: Tranmere Rovers 4-4 Hull City (Bradbury, Clarke, Smith, Cripsey)

12/4/1958: Bradford Park Avenue 4-4 Hull City (Clarke, Bulless, Smith 2)

7/3/1964: Hull City 4-4 Bristol City (Wilkinson, Davidson, Garvey, og)

26/12/1970: Hull City 4-4 Sheffield Wednesday (Chilton 2, Wagstaff, Houghton)

20/10/1981: Scunthorpe United 4-4 Hull City (Marwood 2, G Roberts, Richards)

18/12/1993: Hull City 4-4 Barnet (Windass 3, Moran)

 

Not surprisingly, with ten goals scored our last two away games have also been our most prolific back-to-back away league trips, beating the nine goals scored across visits to Shrewsbury Town (4-1) and Bristol Rovers (5-2) back in 1962/63.
