Jack Hunt makes Hull prediction, Alex Lopez sends message to Wednesday fans

Sheffield Wednesday

Crystal Palace-owned Sheffield Wednesday defender Jack Hunt speaks highly of Championship rivals Hull City.

Crystal Palace-owned Sheffield Wednesday defender Jack Hunt has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to his side’s failure to win against Hull City at home.

Wednesday played out a 1-1 draw with Hull at the Hillsborough Stadium in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Fernando Forestieri put the Owls in the lead just before the half-hour mark when he turned sharply and shot into the bottom corner.

Hull restored parity just six minutes into the second half when Abel Hernandez fired home following a fine double save by Keiren Westwood.

Hunt, who joined Wednesday on a season-long loan deal from Premier League outfit Palace in the summer transfer window, took to Twitter after the match to give his reaction, and so did midfielder Alex Lopez, who moved to the Championship side from Spanish club Celta de Vigo on loan in the summer.

Over the course of the 90 minutes at Hillsborough, Wednesday had 44% of the possession, took 10 shots of which just two were on target, and earned five corners.

The Owls are ninth in the Championship table at the moment with 16 points from 11 matches, just three points behind sixth-place Hull.
