  1. Good evening

    Leeds 2-0 Hull

    Chris Wood

    Two fine goals from Chris Wood and Tom Adeyemi has brought Leeds' three game losing streak to an end.

    Leeds bounced back in some style from last week's loss to QPR; they looked in control for the majority of the 90 minutes.

    You can listen to our exclusive post-match interview with Steve Evans here.

    We will be back next Saturday for the clash with Charlton Athletic. Thank you for joining us and have a great evening.

  2. Evans on Cellino and Byram

    Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Sam Byram
    Quote Message: If Mr Cellino came into the dressing room and told me to change tactics, I would get in a taxi and go home. He has never done it to me. I am her to concentrate on the task. If I'm going to fail, then I'm going to fail on my tactics. My understanding with Sam is that he's turned it down on the basis that he wants to be in the team regularly and playing football. He's been made what I think is more than a fair offer. The young man wants to play football. He has to demonstrate that he wants to be there. from Steve Evans Leeds United head coach, speaking to BBC Radio Leeds

    Steve Evans
    Quote Message: The supporters never let me down today and I will go home so proud of them. I thought Liam Bridcutt was outstanding, especially in the fist half. We talk about being brave and being willing to take the ball. That's what Liam was today, when he was coming between the central defenders. Apart from two or three times where I thought he was rusty, I thought he was very good. I love young Cook and, for 18 years old, he is a special boy. from Steve Evans Leeds United head coach

    Quote Message: We had great adventure in our play. We're disappointed with how we started the second half, and I think their goal was from a foul on Charlie Taylor, but the referee must have thought he wanted to make a game of it! The coaching staff will take great pride in the first goal tonight. We've worked on that for two days and it is a textbook goal; a perfect goal. from Steve Evans Leeds United head coach, speaking to BBC Radio Leeds

    There was a togetherness that we haven't seen for a while and when you put that together with desire and passion, it makes for a great performance

  11. FULL TIME: LEEDS 2-1 HULL

    Leeds

    Hull came close several times towards the end, but all in all that's a good win for Leeds United.

    Two fine strikes from Chris Wood and Tom Adeyemi put Leeds in front, but it was a real team effort to set up both goals.

    Hull posed a threat when they pulled a goal back but Leeds have emerged on top for their second home victory of the season.

  12. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Steve Evans is fuming on the sidelines as we enter the fifth minute of added time.

  13. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Chris Wood is replaced by Soulemanye Doukara and he walks off to a standing ovation from the crowd.

  14. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    We're over 90 minutes now but there's no indication as to how much added time there is. Leeds are now pulling out their best time-wasting tactics.

  15. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Robert Snodgrass swings the ball in to Chuba Akpam. It is set up perfectly for a header but it flies past the post - that wasn't far away at all!

  16. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    It's all Hull at the moment as they pass it around in their own half, but they can't seem to find the net.

  17. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Things have calmed right down now at Elland Road as the wind picks up speed.

    Moses Odubajo crosses in to no-one and the ball rolls behind for a goal kick.

  18. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    One area where Leeds have been weak is defending the set pieces, as another corner isn't dealt with.

    There's back-to-back corners for Hull but Tom Adeyemi leaps up to clear it.

  19. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Giuseppe Bellusci brings down Mo Diame, and Chuba Akpom in return brings down Bellusci.

    The referee glances over and chooses to carry on playing.

  20. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Robert Snodgrass comes on for Sone Aluko and he gets a big round of applause from Leeds and Hull fans alike. He has had 15 months away from football with an injury.

  21. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Stuart Dallas makes way for Luke Murphy for Leeds as Lewis Cook moves to the left side.

    There's a brief chance for Hull as Chuba Akpom heads wide of goal.

  22. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Hull are doing their best to push for a second but Leeds have shut up shop.

    The visitors are still dangerous in midfield though as Sam Clucas attempts to claim a penalty after running into Giuseppe Bellusci.

  23. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    There's been some good defending from both sides in this half as Scott Wootton throws himself in Sam Clucas' way.

  24. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    First change for Leeds as Alex Mowatt is replaced by Sam Byram, who receives a warm round of applause.

  25. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Chris Wood disposses Tom Huddlestone and works it through to Tom Adeyemi.

    There's a bit too much on the ball for Adeyemi and the ball is snatched up by Allan McGregor.

  26. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    A change for Hull as Harry Maguire is replaced by Chuba Akpom. Sam Byram is warming up on the sidelines for Leeds.

  27. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Hull have got the pressure back on Leeds with a corner, but Tom Adeyemi clears it away.

    Harry Maguire then fires in a header but it goes wide of the post, thanks to a neat bit of defending from Charlie Taylor.

  28. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Jake Livermore shoots across goal and Marco Silvestri gets a good hand to keep it out.

    There's a real struggle from Leeds to clear it and the ball is eventually hoofed out of play - close again for Hull.

  29. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Alex Mowatt comes charging in from 30 yards out but he can't find a way through Hull's defence.

    Stuart Dallas tries to weave through from halfway but Hull's defence is again strong.

  30. Leeds 2-1 Hull

  31. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    A good, one-handed save from Marco Silvestri on his left denies Mo Diame who came charging forward after Will Bridcutt lost possession.

    Chris Wood breaks for Leeds but the shot comes to nothing.

  32. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    A free-kick for Hull comes to nothing as Leeds surge forward. It's a little quiet and a little disorganised at the moment, but it is a massive improvement on last week's performance.

  33. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Jake Livermore takes aim from distance but Marco Silvestri is safely behind it.

  34. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    There's a moment of worry for Leeds as Chris Wood goes down, but he shakes off his injury quickly.

    There's a free-kick from Stuart Dallas that flies towards the goal with the wind, but Allan McGregor catches it safely.

  35. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Hull win a free-kick on the edge of the box. Tom Huddlestone sends it swinging in but it's wide, helped by the wind, and Marco Silvestri watches it sail past his bar.

  36. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    Lewis Cook is brought down in the penalty area, potentially by the shoulder, but the referee waves play on.

    Cook then sees a yellow as he brings down Moses Odubajo.

  37. Leeds 2-1 Hull

    There's a nice game on here, with both sides looking to be positive in defence..

  38. BreakingGOAL ELMOHAMADY: LEEDS 2-1 HULL

    Elmohamady

    Hull had started quicker than Leeds but that goal seemed to come from nowhere.

    There was a bit of tussling between Alex Mowatt and Tom Huddlestone, before Ahmed Elmohamady picks up a cross in the box and slots home from close-range.

  39. Leeds 2-0 Hull

  40. Leeds 2-0 Hull

    A steadier start to the second half for both sides. Hull came out well before Leeds, perhaps with a few choice words from Steve Bruce ringing in their ears.

  41. Leeds 2-0 Hull

    Sam Byram, who is on the bench today, has rejected the new contract offer Leeds tabled earlier in the week.

  42. One minute to go

  45. Fortress Elland Road?

    Leeds v Hull

    Alex Mowatt

    Hull City manager Steve Bruce reckons it is "quite incredible" that Leeds have won just one game at Elland Road in nine months.

    Leeds have the worst home record in the Championship and they have struggled to find the net in recent times, but they have a good chance today to turn things around.

    They have scored 16 goals, in comparison to Hull's 27, and they have won just four of their 18 games this season.

    Theres is a togetherness about this team.

    They want it - they have stated and gone about their business.

    With the energy they’ve brought, they deserve to be 2-0 up.

  48. HALF-TIME: Leeds 2-0 Hull

    Hull City are off down the tunnel as Leeds wander off together.

    That's a cracking first half for Leeds, who look miles away from the disjointed team of last week.

    Chris Wood's first goal came after some lovely football between Lewis Cook and Stuart Dallas.

    Then Tom Adeyemi's strike just before half-time added further insult to injury for Hull.

    Two minutes time to be added on.

  50. BreakingGOAL ADEYEMI: LEEDS 2-0 HULL

    Lewis Cook has a drive and it's deflected away by Allan McGregor.

    Tom Adeyemi is as quick as you like to get forward and smash the ball into the back net.

    The entire team dives on a gleeful Adeyemi in celebration. Everyone is doing their job today, and it has shown.

    Tom Adeyemi
  51. Leeds 1-0 Hull

    Things had quietened down but Tom Adeyemi and Alex Mowatt come together again to work their way into the box.

    Alex Mowatt does his best on the edge of the box and hacks the ball away for a corner. Leeds look completely organised and Steve Bruce is not a happy bunny.

  52. Leeds 1-0 Hull

    A mistake from Giuseppe Bellusci sees the ball spiralling up in the air; Marco Silvestri catches the ball just as the flag waves for offside.

  53. Leeds 1-0 Hull

    Another lovely move from Lewis Cook sets up Tom Adeyemi, who shoots but the wind carries the ball wide. Nice and positive from the Whites.

  54. Leeds 1-0 Hull

    This is such an improvement from Leeds on last week; they look full of energy.

    Hull are a little shell-shocked but they bite back as Andrew Robertson cuts inside Stuart Dallas and fires across goal.

  55. Leeds 1-0 Hull

    So close to a second for Leeds as Alex Mowatt unfurls a beautiful strike that smashes into the bar.

    Tom Adeyemi is quick but not quick enough to pick up the rebound and Allan McGregor gathers it. Lovely shot from Mowatt, however.

  56. Leeds 1-0 Hull

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    It's been a great game to watch.

    Both sides have played some good football. They’re playing with pace and tempo and that makes it so good to watch.

    Leeds aren’t allowing them time on the ball. This is much better from Leeds.

  57. BreakingGOAL WOOD: LEEDS 1-0 HULL

    Seventh goal of the season for Chris Wood, and it is a beauty!

    Lewis Cook sends a beautiful ball down the right to Stuart Dallas, who is quick to pass to Wood.

    Wood races ahead of Harry Maguire to shoot from close range and give Leeds the lead. A perfectly constructed goal.

    Chris Wood
  58. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    Harry Maguire finds Mo Diame on the touchline with a lovely pass and Marco Silvestri struggles to pick up the shot from Sam Clucas. It slides wide for a goal kick.

  59. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    A corner for Hull sees United's defence put under pressure and Alex Mowatt can't clear the ball away from Leeds.

    It falls to Tom Huddlestone on the edge of the area who shoots, but there's no power on the ball and it trickles wide.

  60. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    Chris Wood chases a long ball from Giuseppe Bellusci and puts Andrew Robertson under pressure.

    The corner eventually falls to Scott Adeyemi who fires the ball in and it takes another good save from Allan McGregor to keep the ball out. Good energy from Leeds.

  61. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    Chris Wood has a shot from distance - it's well directed and pacey - but Allan McGregor takes a fine, low save to deny in.

    It's good to see Wood with a little more confidence though, especially after his struggles last week.

  62. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    Stuff being thrown onto the pitch now as we resume - Alex Bruce has been replaced by Curtis Davies due to injury.

  63. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    Thoughts from Noel

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    The majority of fans have stayed in their seats.

    It's been a good game to watch - some good football and good competition.

  64. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    There's a break in play as Alex Bruce falls to the floor - looks like he's collided with Chris Wood going for a header.

  65. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    Alex Mowatt takes the free-kick, which slams into the wall. Mowatt tries again on the rebound and he hits the wall again.

    We're into the 17th minute and there's a few fans leaving the South Stand...

  66. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    Stuart Dallas breaks and works his way through to Alex Mowatt.

    It's lovely football from Mowatt, who curls the ball through to Dallas. Dallas shoots, hits the bar and there's a free-kick given to Leeds.

  67. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    The ball falls nicely for Mo Diame on the edge of the box, but he shoots into the wind and the ball is dragged just over the bar.

  68. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    Giuseppe Bellusci takes a free-kick from 30 yards out and goes for goal. 

    It's on target but Allan McGregor makes a comfortable save high to his right.

  69. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    Moses Odubajo works his way into space and goes for the shot, which again goes high over the bar.

    Hull are full of confidence at the moment, taking their shots as often as they can.

  70. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    Stuart Dallas has a chance to shoot from his left foot after winning the aerial battle, but it slices wide.

  71. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    Leeds had a bright opening start but Hull are full of confidence and they've dominated play since then.

    Not that Leeds are fading away - Charlie Taylor crosses in twice from the left side and Hull have to scramble to clear the ball.

  72. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    A dangerous moment for Leeds as Moses Odubajo crosses in and it flies perilously close to the goal.

  73. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    Chris Wood chests the ball through to Stuart Dallas, but the pair can't control the ball and it rolls out for a throw in.

    There's plenty of noise around Elland Road this afternoon - Hull have brought a decent amount of fans with them.

  74. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    Close for Hull as Tom Huddlestone's corner finds Alex Bruce at the back post. 

    Bruce goes for goal and Marco Silvestri takes the ball well in his chest to keep things calm.

  75. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    A frantic start as Andrew Robertson drives his way forward with some pace. A last minute block by Liam Cooper, however, keeps the ball away from the net.

  76. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    An early free-kick for Alex Mowatt after a lovely bit of football from Stuart Dallas.

    It's windy but Mowatt manages to swing it in towards the goal. Allan McGregor collects it easily, however.

  77. Leeds 0-0 Hull

    There's a few boos at Elland Road ahead of kick-off, and there is a walk-out planned in the 17th minute over the pie tax.

    Leeds get us underway, going left to right.

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    The last couple of games it's seemed that they are trying to hit the front men early.

    There have been a lot of long balls and trying to turn them in but they have to be quality balls and they haven't been.

    We haven’t scored in two games because we’re not creating chances.

    We look a bit clueless in the final third and not sure what to do. We need to see some more inventiveness from the midfield players.

  83. Head to head

    Leeds v Hull

    Rob Snodgrass

    Leeds have lost just two of 20 league games at Elland Road against Hull, with the visitors failing to score in ten fixtures.

    However Hull have had the upper hand in recent meetings, winning two and drawing one of their last three meetings.

    City also have the third best away record in the league, which could be crucial given United's struggles at home this season.

    BBC West Yorkshire Sport

    It's not often I like seeing ex-players come back but Robert Snodgrass is an exception.

    My best memory is not the promotion, the win at Old Trafford nor the penalty at Arsenal in the FA Cup, but the way he twisted Andrea Dossena inside out against Liverpool in the League Cup.

    Leeds lost the game but Snoddy showed his quality by giving the Italian twisted blood.

    What a player and he deserved to play in the Premier League. I just wish it was with Leeds. 

  87. Snodgrass returns to Elland Road

    Leeds v Hull

    Rob Snodgrass

    Rob Snodgrass makes his return to Elland Road today, three years after leaving the club to join Norwich City.

    The former captain made 141 league appearances for the Whites, scoring 35 goals.

    He left in 2012 to join the Canaries, where he stayed for two years before joining Hull.

    His season has been curtailed by injury but he looks set to make a return today in front of the Leeds faithful.

  88. Popey reminisces on Hull's history

    Leeds v Hull

    Adam Pope

    BBC West Yorkshire Sport

    Whenever Hull City are the opposition it makes me think anything is possible in football. 

    When I used to work in the Builders' Merchants game I used to run a branch at Anlaby and the firm would often sponsor matches at Boothferry Park.

    This was the mid 90's and a time when the club was struggling to survive as they were forced to sell star players like Alan Fettis and Dean Windass to stave off their debts.

    By the turn of the century the bailiffs had been in and briefly locked the club's gates as the Tigers faced the prospect of liquidation.

    But then it all clicked. The right owner and management team came and in just five seasons they went through the divisions to secure promotion to the top flight.

    Does it really ever get much better than that for supporters?

  89. Will Byram stay or go?

    Leeds v Hull

    Sam Byram

    Steve Evans spoke to BBC Radio Leeds earlier this week about the future of Sam Byram.

    Byram has had a torrid time this year after the chairman described him as "too big for his boots" when the youngster turned down a contract.

    "That bridge was broken and I worked so hard to bring the two parties back to the table," Evans told Adam Pope.

    "I've spoken to him as Uncle Steve, not the gaffer. Sam wants to chat to his dad before talking with his representatives."

  91. Popey on the pie tax

    Leeds v Hull

    Adam Pope

    BBC West Yorkshire Sport

    The pie tax has been a massive own goal from a publicity point of view for the club. 

    The fans are already upset and in big numbers, so why antagonise the situation further?

    I understand that it’s a good economic move by Massimo Cellino to bring the catering in-house, but to force fans into buying food with an unavoidable levy does not sit well.

    After last weekend I felt huge swathes of the fanbase were truly disillusioned about the prospects at the club. 

    In these difficult and uncertain times at Leeds United it is maybe worth believing that at some point the tide will turn in the club's favour.

  92. Pie-gate

    Leeds v Hull

    Elland Road

    Leeds fans have been left fuming after a "pie tax" was added on to the price of some match day tickets.

    Adult ticket prices in the South Stand have been raised by £5 to include a "meal deal" voucher.

    Fans are planning a walk-out today in the 17th minute to protest against the tax - a number that chairman Massimo Cellino is known not to be fond of.

    "It may not be on the same scale as some of the bigger issues the club has had to deal with since Cellino arrived, but it is one of those things we could have done without," the Leeds Supporters Trust said.

    "If in January we've either sold our best players and we're not recruiting top players, I don't want to be head coach," he told Adam Pope.

    "If we don't strengthen in January and are ultimately weakened, there's no point in me living here and wanting to make this my life.

    "I want to build something here to give Leeds supporters something to be proud about."

    Good afternoon, and welcome to today's windy coverage of Leeds United v Hull.

    It's been another week of controversy at Elland Road - this time, a pie tax is the culprit.
