Can't defend, won't defend: Your reaction to Huddersfield Town 2 Hull City 2

Jamie Paterson and Rajiv van La Parra hailed by fans in the aftermath of last-gasp draw

Sky Bet Championship - Huddersfield Town v Hull City - Jamie Paterson goal.

Huddersfield Town ensured they avoided an unwanted hat-trick of defeats by earning a point against Hull City - but many fans left feeling frustrated their team hadn't won all three.

Jamie Paterson put Town ahead in the first half, but they were pegged back midway through the second period by Abel Hernandez.

And a frantic end to an entertaining affair started when Harry Maguire headed into his own net to give Town the lead in the final minute of normal time, only for sub Adama Diomande to break Terrier hearts with a stoppage time equaliser.

A point against one of the top six is not to be sniffed at, and David Wagner professed himself pleased with the reaction of his players to a deeply dissatisfying performance against Middlesbrough in the week.

And while Rajiv van La Parra's home debut had supporters talking for the right reasons, the defence came in for some pelters.

Here's what Town fans made of the match.

Jamie Paterson broke the deadlock with a wonderful strike that had the crowd clamouring for him to be given a pen and paper immediately.

But his contribution was eclipsed by Rajiv van La Parra, who will be joining on a permanent deal come the summer and made a big impression on the John Smith's Stadium faithful.

Hull got their first equaliser not long after he was replaced, and Wagner's subs came under some fire.

But the most ire was reserved for the defence, who conceded two sloppy goals.

Yet most fans were positive, accepting a draw against a side brimming with Premier League experience and gunning for promotion is a positive result.
