Leeds made it three games without a goal under manager Neil Warnock as Leeds battled to a 0-0 draw at Hull City.

Warnock handed a first start to Danny Webber and new signing Paul Robinson was named amongst the substitutes.

Leeds had an early chance but Luciano Becchio fired over after a ball in from Paul Connolly.

Robert Snodgrass fired wide after good play between the Leeds captain and Ross McCormack.

Hull had their first chance when Cameron Stewart blazed over after being put through on goal.

Robert Koren then had the first effort of the night on target with Andy Lonergan in the Leeds goal making a comfortable save.

Becchio then had Leeds first effort on target but Mannone saved his header.

McCormack then disappointingly fired wide from a Leeds free kick.

Koren then tested Lonergan again, this time Lonergan turned the ball away for a corner.

Aaron McLean headed wide for the home side following a corner as the game started to open up as it headed towards half time.

Corey Evans had the best chance of the opening 40 minutes but Lonergan made a great save to deny him.

Hull were taking control of the game and Koren fired just wide with Lonergan beaten.

Lonergan then made another good save, this time to deny Stewart.

The half time whistle came much to the relief of Leeds having been pegged back in the final ten minutes of the half.

McLean had the first effort of the second half for the home side, which went harmlessly wide.

Darren O`Dea then headed wide for Leeds as they looked to get into the game in the second half.

Snodgrass then had an optimistic effort well off target for Leeds.

The start of the second half was much scrappier and it was past the hour before another chance. McCormack firing his shot straight at Mannone.

Leeds were looking stronger as the game headed towards the final quarter but there was no final ball.

Adam Clayton fired well wide after a good Leeds move with just three minutes remaining.

Paul McKenna had Lonergan scrambling in the second minute of three minutes added time as the game headed towards a goalless draw.

The game soon came to an end as Leeds failed to score for the third game in a row.
