Hull continued to extend their purple patch to win their fourth game of the season in one of the close football scores of the weekend in the Championship. George Honeyman scored the opener for the Tigers before Tom Bradshaw equalized for the visitors on the stroke of half-time. Ryan Longman then went on to score the winner in the second half to help continue their rise towards the top of the table.
Hull’s Grant McCann: “At this level, you’ve got to take your chances and if you don’t you get punished. We’re taking our chances, I think we’ve played better than we’ve shown in some games this season and definitely in these four games we’ve won. We’ve taken opportunities that have come our way and scored first in games that have helped us. It’s the first time we’ve conceded in three games and we showed that real edge about us again to go and try score again so that’s pleased me but most importantly the three points”
Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “I don’t think we quite did enough to go and win the game. We created chances, had a lot of control, a lot more possession. We’ve got to take our chances and be ruthless and that’s something we haven’t done often enough this season.” he added. “We conceded two very poor goals from our perspective, I’m sure Hull will see it slightly differently. You have to move on quickly in the Championship. I’m disappointed, annoyed, frustrated but it isn’t going to win us the next game.”
