Hull stay top after goalless draw with Sheffield Wednesday
Ahmed Elmohamady only played a couple of minutes at the end of the game as the Tigers looked to stay top of the league.
The Tigers controlled the game in the beginning of the first half and looked more dangerous, as in the 11th minute Robert Snodgrass whipped a low cross in the box which Turner failed to capitalize on.
Four minutes later Sheffield had an attempt on goal when Bary Bannan’s left footed shot from outside the box missed the target.
In the 18th minute, Odubajo sent a cross to Snodgrass at the back post which he shot, but Sheffield’s keeper Westwood managed to keep out the danger.
In the 29th minute Sheffield’s Forestieri struck a great free kick that McGregor managed to stretch and tip off the bar.
Eight minutes later Sheffield Wednesday almost broke the deadlock when Fernando Forestieri hit a wonderful long range effort that cannoned off the bar.
Six minutes after half time, Robertson sent a great through ball for Clucas who only managed to chip it to the side netting.
In the 66th minute after some great passing play, Sam Clucas curled a fantastic ball from outside the box that hit the post which again denied the Tigers from a goal.
Hull continued their pressure on Sheffield Wednesday with Snodgrass and Livermore both attempting shots from outside the box in the 76th and 78th minutes.
Sheffield’s Fernando Forestieri got dismissed for receiving his second yellow in the 91st minute of the game.
Ahmed Elmohamady finally came on in the 93rd minute to try and salvage the three points for Hull City but doesn’t manage to as the match ended four minutes later.
Hull City have managed to stay top of the league with 64 points followed by second placed Burnley who have 62 points.
