A Curtis Davies own goal settled a 2-2 draw between Hull City FC and West Ham United at the KC Stadium on Monday night, despite debut goals from Abel Hernandez and Mohamed Diame.

Coach Sam Allardyce’s side twice drew level as the forward pairing of Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho materialised quick for the visitors in the pair’s first outing together.

Uruguayan striker Hernandez opened his Hull account following his record £9.5m transfer from Palermo this summer with a superb first-half header.

Valencia marked his first league start with a “wonderful” equaliser on 50 minutes; the Ecuadorian crashing home an unstoppable effort from 25 yards.

Diame restored the hosts’ lead four minutes after the hour mark, taking advantage of his former club’s sloppy defence to sink in from inside the box.

But the ‘Hammers’ ended the night contented as Davies diverted Sakho’s shot into his own net.

Valencia almost won the contest in added time when his header rebounded off Michael Dawson’s chest and rattled the crossbar.

The draw lifted West Ham up two places to 13th, as Steve Bruce’s side also moved up two places to 10th.
