Head coach Oscar Garcia has bemoaned our inability to take our chances in yesterdays loss to Wigan.
Wigan were two clear in the game for most of the second half but Leo Ulloa continued his scoring run of form by grabbing us a consolation 12 minutes from time.
Not the perfect preparation for Hull admittedly, and it does mark our first home loss of 2014, but it was overall a good display again and positives can be taken from that, but we've got to start taking displays like that an ensuring victories.
Speaking to the Official Site Garcia's frustration was palpable at the final whistle, and whilst he wasn't critical of the team as he knows we did play well, that frustration at not taking our chances was an abiding memory.
'We were unfortunate to lose. When you have 65 per cent of possession and more than twenty chances, and the opposition only have five or six chances then you fully deserve to win - but they took two of their chances and we only took one of ours.'
Oscar goes on to say that converting opportunities has been something we have been working on all season because it was identified as a problem early on.
'It's difficult because only Leo seems to be accurate in front of goal and this is a thing we have to improve, and we are trying to do this in training. I hope over the next few games we can change this.'
If anything Garcia knows we can learn from our opponents yesterday, as he admits we made two mistakes in the game and were suitably punished, and although it's difficult to face a team like Wigan and keep them quiet, he was delighted with how we managed them and the game otherwise.
'I was pleased with the performance of the players and the character that we showed in the game when we were two goals behind. We were the better side and maybe we were the only side trying to play football but the result wasn't good for us.'
Have to put this behind us quickly, one day of training for Hull and then we are off up north for Monday evenings game.
The one doubt for the match remains Solly March who missed yesterdays encounter through injury, but a decision will be taken on him later today you would imagine.
