This evening's Premiership basement battle between Bolton Wanderers and Hull City, in particular the second half, was actually a game which lived up to that oft used phrase of a pulsating game.

The Tigers fightback from two goals down to claim a valuable point was great entertainment and much better than the top four battle between Aston Villa and Liverpool that was also on this evening.

When Hull went two down, it looked like Phil Brown may be facing questions surrounding his future once more, but after their ferocious comeback, and some key decisions gone awry, Gary Megson is now looking favourite to be the next Premiership manager to face the chop.

If Hull can manage to stay up for another season against the odds, it will be a tremendous achievement and if they can just get the talismanic Jimmy Bullard fit and keep him that way, then I'd completely back them to do this.

With so much at stake and so many teams still looking like realistic contenders for the drop if they string a run of poor results together, the rest of the 2009/2010 season is sure to serve up week after week of games like this from those at the bottom end of the table. It could be the tightest and most exciting finish yet and I can't wait!
