We had best chances - Steve Bruce on Hull v Leicester City
Hull City manager Steve Bruce said he was disappointed not to have come away with a win against "one of the big teams in the division" as his side drew 0-0 with Leicester City.
His side came into the clash with Leicester on the back of four consecutive wins in the Championship, but both sides failed to take their chances in a very open affair.
The result sees Hull stay seven points ahead of City in second place, while Nigel Pearson's men maintain their fifth-place spot going into Saturday's vital clash with Burnley.
Bruce believes his side have to be more clinical, if they are to beat sides like Leicester.

"We are disappointed that we haven't beaten one of the big teams in the division, which shows where we are at the moment," said Bruce.
"But we've had the real good chances in the game, the best chances, and didn't quite take them. Against a well-planned out Leicester team who got men behind the ball, it becomes difficult. We have to take the chances and be a little bit more clinical.
"In big games, you can't be expected to create eight or nine chances every week. In this game, we had four or five – they are chances that you really must take in a big game. I think that's the frustration for us all, that we haven't been clinical enough.
"A draw was probably the fair result in the end, but then again, they are a good side. I am pleased that we have got something from it.
"I have said that when I've seen Leicester and Cardiff, for me, they are the two teams to beat. They've had huge investment over the last couple of years and they are the sides to beat from what I have seen so far."
