Chico Flores equalized in the second half to cancel out Danny Graham's first goal since January and give Swansea a 1-1 draw against Hull in the Premier League on Monday.

Graham had not scored since leaving Swansea for Hull this year, but gave his new team the lead by meeting a cross at the far post to slot into the net in the eighth minute.

Hull then kept Swansea at bay with ease until the hour mark when Jonjo Shelvey's driven ball hit Flores and flew in to give the Spaniard his first Premier League goal, although replays showed the ball had come off his arm.

Hull could have had a penalty but referee Martin Atkinson missed a handball by Swansea defender Dwight Tiendalli as he blocked Alex Bruce's header.
