West Ham manager Gianfranco Zola reflected on a "crazy game" after his side claimed a 3-3 draw at 10-man Hull.
The Hammers were forced to come from behind to take a point off their fellow Barclays Premier League strugglers after surrendering a 2-0 lead. Manuel da Costa hit the equaliser for the London club after Bernard Mendy was sent off for denying Scott Parker a clear goalscoring opportunity.
"I think it was a crazy game," said Zola. "When we were 2-0 up I couldn't see them coming back because we looked in control."
He added: "Their first goal was a deflection, maybe the second goal we should have done better and the third goal was a penalty that wasn't a penalty at all.
"After that it was tough to come back but the reaction from the team was excellent and I am delighted for them.
"At the end of the day we have got a point and it could have been more because we had a couple of chances to get another goal."
The Hammers raced ahead with headed goals from Guillermo Franco and Jack Collison inside the opening 11 minutes. Hull replied when a Jimmy Bullard free-kick deflected off Scott Parker and Carlton Cole to loop over goalkeeper Robert Green.
Kamil Zayatte equalised and then Bullard completed a remarkable turnaround before half-time as he smashed in a penalty after Craig Fagan was adjudged to have been fouled.
Zola added: "It was a strange game. Maybe we could have handled it better when we were 2-0 up but I have to say they came back really well.
"Hull City played a good game and did very well to do what they did. I'm sure it wasn't a penalty for them. Referees sometimes make mistakes and you can't do anything about that. The important thing for me was the reaction. I am delighted about that."
