The English football Championship leaders Cardiff improved their position at the top despite being held to a dour 0-0 draw at Huddersfield.

Second-placed Leicester, home to free-scoring new All Whites recruit Chris Wood, and third placed Hull both lost so Cardiff finished the weekend 11 points clear in the race to reach the Premier League, with 16 games to go.

Leicester crashed to a surprise 2-1 defeat at bottom of the table Peterborough while Hull fared little better, slipping to a 1-0 defeat at Brighton.
