Leicester   1 - 1   Hull

Leicester 1-1 Hull

Leicester 1-1 Hull

Robert Koren's goal for Hull denied Sven-Goran Eriksson a winning start as Leicester boss.

Andy King gave the Swedish manager some early cheer when he squeezed the ball in from a tight angle despite Matt Duke managing to get his hands to the shot.

But shortly after the restart, Koren fired in a 30-yard shot that Chris Weale could only parry into the goal.

Leicester also went close when Jack Hobbs headed straight at Duke, while King curled a shot wide for Hull.

The Wales international also had a goalbound shot blocked by Anthony Gerrard midway through the first half.

Indeed, Eriksson's side created many chances during the match, with Bruno Berner firing a shot across the face of goal just before half-time, while Paul Gallacher blasted over late in the match.

Meanwhile, at the other end Foxes keeper Chris Weale was alert to stop Nick Barmby's volley.

And substitute Kevin Kilbane then nearly won it for Hull with his first touch, but his header was smothered by the Leicester stopper.
