Nouha Dicko of Hull City sends the ball over the crossbar from close range
Nouha Dicko saw Hull's best chance go over the bar from close range

Leeds United held on for a goalless draw at relegation-threatened Hull City to end their three-game losing run.

Goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald made a number of key saves for Leeds before the break, keeping Jarrod Bowen, Nouha Dicko and Jackson Irvine out.

After the break, Dicko sent a glorious chance over the bar after Wiedwald parried into the striker's path.

While Pierre-Michel Lasogga and Ezgjan Alioski both had chances for Leeds, neither side could find a winner.

For the first time in three games, Thomas Christiansen's Leeds side finished with a full complement of players and avoided defeat.

A point for Hull leaves them 21st in the table and above the relegation places on goal difference, but Nigel Adkins' side pressed for maximum points throughout.

While the hosts made a lively start and almost took an early lead through Fraizer Campbell, who burst into the box only to put his effort wide, Leeds suffered an injury setback as defender Conor Shaughnessy left the field on a stretcher after just six minutes.

Wiedwald made a string of saves before the half-hour mark, tipping a half-volley from Dicko wide, while foiling Irvine at his near post and foiling Bowen twice.

Dicko headed the game's best chance wastefully over the bar in the 53rd minute, after Wiedwald tipped a dangerous cross from Kamil Grosicki straight to the unmarked striker inside the six-yard box.

Leeds threatened more after that, but had to settle for a share of the spoils.

Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen told BBC Radio Leeds:

"It wasn't a great game, but it was a game that we all expected.

"In general I'm satisfied with the courage the players showed from the first minute to the 95th.

"We are in a bad run, not only with the results, but with red cards and now with injuries. Conor's injury was his ankle, already at half-time it was swollen, so we'll see."
