After the break, the Tigers took the lead themselves, with ex-Liverpool Lazar Markovic firing hoime after his initial header came back off the bar.
Things got even better for the resilient Tigers when, on 71 minutes, Clucas controlled a cleared ball on his chest before volleying home past Heurelho Gomes.
