Hull City head coach Steve Bruce feels Chuba Akpom and his team-mates are improving slowly especially after Saturday’s win at Nottingham Forest –a development that the manager says he is pleased with.
Having won on their previous three visits to the City Ground, Hull City made it four wins in a row thanks to a tap in from Abel Hernandez who came off for the Nigerian youngster with 16 minutes left on the clock.
It was the Tigers a second away win of the season, leaving them unbeaten in their last five matches in all competitions Bruce is says the form shows a great deal of improvement.
“We’re unbeaten in five now and showing that little bit of resilience that, certainly away from home, was missing,” said Bruce.
“We can improve and I thought we gave the ball away far too cheaply at times in the first half and the only problems we had were caused by ourselves.
“However, at the other end of the pitch we looked a threat even though we only scored the one goal. We missed a penalty, hit the bar and had a couple of headers on target.
“We’re trundling along and slowly but surely getting better and getting to grips with the challenge that lies ahead.” Bruce told the Hull City official website.
The victory leaves Bruce’s men fifth in the Championship table going into the second international break of the campaign and the manager is encouraged by what he has seen over the last two or three weeks.
