Leeds United sit just a point outside the Premier League relegation spots after drawing 0-0 with Brentford on Sunday.

The Whites are without a league win since before the World Cup break, while the Bees' unbeaten streak is now at eight games - they have lost just four of their 20 matches in the top flight this term.

Brentford came close to taking the lead straight from the opening kick off, with David Raya's long kick finding Ivan Toney, who in turn fired wide.

The only other chance of note in the first half came when Max Wober's free-kick sailed harmlessly over the bar in a game that was rather scruffy at both ends.

Raya was twice on hand to deny Leeds at the start of the second half, firstly from Rodrigo and then from Wilfried Gnonto, while the Spain stopper then kept out Jack Harrison with 20 minutes remaining.

In the dying embers, a cross from Rico Henry was nodded on by Toney, but it bounced past the post and the points were shared.
