Hull City head coach Steve Bruce was left frustrated after watching Nigerian duo Moses Odubajo and Chuba Akpom fail to secure maximum points against Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday night.
Akpom who came on for Robert Snodgrass with 19 minutes left on the clock and Odubajo who played the entire duration of the game extended their lead at the top of the Championship with a goalless draw against promotion rivals Brighton.
“Frustrating, disappointing, edgy – it was a difficult night,” said Bruce.
“Fair play to Brighton, they have come and worked very hard and frustrated us. When you get a point away from home you are going to be happy with that. They have come with a game plan and it’s worked very well.
“We didn’t play well enough tonight and that’s going to happen. We take the point and move on.
“I was expecting Brighton to stay with two up front, but they didn’t and they went with a lone striker and packed the midfield. They put ten men behind the ball and the longer it went on, the more frustrated we became. They had a game plan and they nailed it.” Bruce stated.
