It finished all square at the KC Stadium as both sides failed to convert any real chances

Adel Taarabt came close early on for the visitors as he created space for himself on the edge of the Hull box and fired a right footed effort just over the bar.

QPR then came close again as Hull keeper Brad Guzan could only parry a Taarabt corner into the path of Matt Connolly, however, the hoops defender could only blaze the ball over from close range.

Cameron Stewart had Hull’s best chance of the half as the Manchester United loanee fired in a first time effort from 20 yards but keeper QPR Paddy Kenny was more than equal to it.

Towards the end of the first half Taarabt became visibly frustrated for the vistiors and, after wasting a close-range free-kick, signaled to the QPR bench that he wanted to be replaced. However, he seemingly overcame this set-back and came out to play the second half.

James Harper tried his luck for the tigers early in the second half but his speculative shot from 35 yards was comfortably tipped over by Kenny.

QPR nearly found themselves in front midway through the half as a looping Taarabt free-kick was met at the back post by Bradley Orr but the ex-Barnsley man could only fire the ball over from close range.

Hull substitute Jamie Devitt had a chance towards the end of the game but his right footed effort was comfortably turned round the post by Kenny.

City's best chance fell to Matt Fryatt in injury time as Liam Rosenior slipped a neat ball through to Hull striker but the ex-Leicester man failed to hit the target, firing the ball well over from close range.
