Hull City 0-0 Norwich City: The Canaries drop points but still stay top

Norwich City were held onto a frustrating 0-0 draw at KCOM stadium by a lowly Hull City on Tuesday in the Championship. Both sides struggled to find a single goal under extreme conditions, yet Norwich City held onto the top spot.

Hull started the game strongly and threatened first in the second minute but Chris Martin’s header was hit straight at Tim Krul.

Norwich then went closest to scoring in the first half when Tom Trybull saw his effort get saved by David Marshall but the same player was guilty of an awful miss after the break when his header failed to find the target.

Jarrod Bowen had Hull’s best chance to break the deadlock, but he headed wide at the far post in the first half before shooting into the side netting after the break. Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul was called into action and he punched clear a Kamil Grosicki cross before Alex Tettey saw his long-range effort be kept out by Marshall.

The Canaries were moving the ball much quicker in testing conditions, with Buendia curling a free-kick straight at Marshall after Jackson Irvine had fouled Tettey on the edge of the box.

Goalless at half-time, Hull came flying off their blocks after the break, with Irvine shooting straight at Krul after running on to Bowen’s pass before Grosicki tested the Norwich goalkeeper. Hull attacked in numbers as Bowen then slashed a right-footed shot wide at the far post and Markus Henriksen shot over the bar for the home side.

Trybull should have given Norwich the lead in the 69th minute but he miscued his header from Max Aarons’ superb cross eight yards out. Norwich boss Daniel Farke introduced Mario Vrancic to break Hull’s flow before throwing Todd Cantwell into the fray minutes later.

And Vrancic made an immediate impact when he created a chance for the onrushing Aarons but Marshall came off his line to collect the ball.

And despite plenty of late pressure, Norwich struggled to break down a resolute Hull defence and had to be content with a point at KCOM stadium.
