Hull 0-0 Leeds: Lonergan frustrates toothless Tigers
Published 21:46 06/03/12 By MirrorFootball
Leeds keeper Andy Lonergan ensured more frustration for Hull, who have now failed to score in seven of their last 11 matches.
It's a record which is damaging their play-off ambitions, although manager Nick Barmby said: "It might be a worry for everybody else, but I believe in these lads.
"Give credit to their keeper - he made some really fine saves just before half-time. If we had scored then we would have gone on to win it. "
Robert Koren, Cameron Stewart, Paul McKenna and Corry Evans all failed to find a way past Lonergan, who has impressed new Leeds boss Neil Warnock.
"Andy showed he's a good keeper," said Warnock. "His concentration level was good and I think he's enjoying playing with us."
Leeds created few chances themselves as Hull keeper Vito Mannone, on loan from Arsenal, chalked up his fifth successive clean sheet at the KC Stadium.
Warnock said: "We had some good breakaways, but always chose the wrong pass.
"We gave Hull too much space in the first half - but it's difficult when you are playing on a rugby pitch."
