Newcstle United substitute Papiss Cisse scored twice in the last 18 minutes to earn his side a point against Hull City.
The visitors had opened up a 2-0 lead in the second half thanks to goals from Nikica Jelavic and Mohamed Diame but Cisse came off the bench to mark his first appearance of the season, after recovering from a fractured kneecap, in style.
Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor was busy early on as he made saves from Remy Cabella and Jack Colback, before the whole crowd rose to pay tribute to Jonas Gutierrez - the Newcastle midfielder revealed to be suffering from testicular cancer earlier this week - by applauding after the 18th minute.
Newcastle will have been disappointed not to have made more of their first-half dominance, and they were made to pay for not doing so when Jelavic netted his third goal of the campaign in spectacular style.
The Croatia international met an Ahmed Elmohamady cross with a magnificent acrobatic effort that left Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul with no chance.
Cabella was twice denied by McGregor as Newcastle sought a quick response but Stephen Quinn missed the chance to double the lead from close range at a free-kick.
Hull did go 2-0 up however in the 68th minute when Diame, who also scored against West Ham United on Monday, hit a vicious strike into the top corner with Krul once again left helpless.
Cisse was immediately thrown into the fray and within four minutes he had halved the deficit by sliding a low shot under McGregor at the near post following good work from Cheick Tiote.
Newcastle poured forward and secured a share of the spoils with just three minutes to go as Cisse slammed home Yoan Gouffran's knockdown from inside the six-yard box.
The result left the Magpies still inside the bottom three while Hull remained in mid-table.
