A goalless draw at The Den did little to ease the early relegation worries for Millwall and Hull City.

Lee Gregory had an early chance for the Lions but shot wide of the post.

Jarrod Bowen missed two good chances for Hull and striker Fraizer Campbell chose to pass when put through just after the break.

Keeper Allan McGregor earned the visitors a point, saving a powerful header from Shaun Hutchinson and Shane Ferguson's low shot late on.

The draw sees Millwall's winless streak extended to five games - their worst run of the season.

Hull avoided defeat in the capital for the first time in eight matches, a sequence that had stretched back to January 2016.

Millwall boss Neil Harris:

"Let's not forget they brought £33m worth of talent with them tonight so the clean sheet is good for us.

"I'm disappointed with the result: we controlled the game for 15 minutes and looked threatening. They had chances to score but we defended our box very well.

"Hull have been conceding a lot of late goals but not tonight. It was another game where we have created a host of chances but couldn't supply the final touch."

Hull manager Leonid Slutsky:

"I don't know what's happening, thinking about my future, I spoke with the owner a couple of days ago, I've not spoken to him today; I didn't know he was at the match.

"I never worry about my job but I feel everybody supports me, we are building a team here, not quickly. I thought it would be easy for me at Hull but every game is tough.

"It's difficult to understand my feelings right now, but we must think about the positives like the clean sheet and the amount of chances that we created.

"We controlled the game but it is disappointing not to get the win."
