Hull City v Leicester City: As it happened
Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson made two changes to the side that fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of league leaders Cardiff on Saturday.
Matty James and Ben Marshall come in to the starting line-up in place of Lloyd Dyer and Jamie Vardy as City adopt a 4-2-3-1 formation.
5 min: First chance of the game falls to Hull's Jay Simpson, who gets on to the end of a deep cross but is unable to get a strong enough contact on his first-time effort.
13 min: Anthony Knockaert picks the ball up on the egde of the area and tries to play through David Nugent but his attempt is blocked straight back to him. This time he fires a shot low towards Eldin Jakupovic's right but his attempt goes narrowly wide.

17 min: City's best chance of the game goes begging. Paul Konchesky pulls the ball back, it eludes Nugent but falls to Knockaert. However, his first-time strike goes wide.
18 min: Knockaert again breaks through the middle and plays in the overlapping Danny Drinkwater, who forces a fine save from Jakupovic for City's first shot on target. City are beginning to look creative in midfield.
19 min: Now it's time for Hull to register their first shot on target as Robert Koren tries an effort from distance. But it is tame and causes no problems for Kasper Schmeichel.
24 min: Knockaert with the long-range effort and this time it's on target and is headed towards the top corner but Jakupovic tips the ball over.
28 min: Despite all the chances, it is City that are lucky not to go behind when a Hull corner is met firmly by the head of Abdoulaye Faye at the back post. It's just wide.
30 min: Another lucky escape for City as some lovely interplay from the home sides sees Simpson emerge one-on-one with Schmeichel. The striker tries to go round the City keeper but is forced wide. Simpson gets his shot away but De Laet clears it off the line.
32 min: Wes Morgan is left for dead as Sone Aluko skips by him. The striker fires a low shot towards the corner but a fine diving save from Schmeichel denies him.
36 min: Marshall breaks down the left and plays it inside to Knockaert, who is in acres of space. But he spots Nugent's run too late and his ball leaves Nugent offside.
37 min: BOOKING Ritchie De Laet finds himself in the referee's book for a late challenge on Robbie Brady.
43 min: City find themselves under the cosh and it is only thanks to a number of good blocks from Morgan and Zak Whitbread that it remains scoreless.
H-T: Hull 0 City 0
46 min: There is a half-time change for City as Liam Moore replaces the yellow-carded De Laet.
55mis: Huge appeals for a penalty as the ball appears to strike Konchesky on the arm but referee Craig Pawson waves away the protests.
66 min: Change for City as Martyn Waghorn replaces Nugent up front.
72 min: Knockaert charges through and plays on Waghorn on the left who, in turn, plays it back inside to Marshall who rifles one goalbound. His effort hits Jakupovic, it loops over the bar and for a corner that comes to nothing.
79 min: City get hit on the break as Hull attack in numbers and Aluko is played in. He twists and turns and finally gets a shot away but it is palmed away by the diving Schmeichel and City eventually clear.
81 min: Paul Gallagher makes his first Championship appearance of the season for City as he comes on to replace King.
82 min: His first touch is to curl a free-kick towards the top corner. It flicks off the top of the wall and loops towards goal. The wrong-footed Jakupovic can only spill it and nearly drops it into his own goal but reclaims it at the last moment.
85 min: Marshall charges down the right and plays the ball inside to Waghorn in space. The striker cuts into the area and fires a right-footed shot at goal but it is well saved by the keeper.
87 min: It's end-to-end stuff in the closing minutes. Simpson gets on to the end of a cross but heads it straight at Schmeichel from all but three yards out. He should have scored.
F-T: Hull 0 City 0
