Check out our at-a-glance big match analysis from Leeds United’s 2-2 draw with Hull City at the KC Stadium.

GOOD DAY FOR

Hull players celebrate.

Hull players celebrate.

Robert Snodgrass: Must have been keen to shine against his old side and we saw exactly the same player who quit Elland Road four years ago – dangerous, persistent and big enough to take a huge weight of creative pressure on his shoulders. Leeds would have him back tomorrow. Someone else might take him if Hull don’t go up.

BAD DAY FOR

Lee Erwin: It’s a little unrealistic to expect Erwin, after so many weeks of inactivity or development squad matches, to step into the team and blow everyone watching away but he took a long time to get into last week’s win over Wolves and he was on the fringes on Saturday. It was well worth giving Erwin a go but the evidence of the visit to Hull says Jordan Botaka should now get a chance.

KEY MOMENT

Chris Wood’s penalty: Leeds recovered well from a barrage before half-time and there was no arguing with the penalty decision after Odubajo hacked down Taylor. Had Wood buried it, United might have fancied their chances of forcing a win at a ground where all is not exactly well but in fairness to Alan McGregor, he saved it superbly.

WHAT THEY SAID

Mike Phelan: “At the moment we are concerned that we’re giving away a couple of goals a game, because if you’re scoring two and not winning...we need to find a remedy, which we will do.”

Steve Evans: “We got ourselves in front with a real bit of quality that we work on in training. But if you have suicidal defending, you’re going to concede.”
