Gaffer Will Draw On The Positives

29 August 2015

Manager Simon Grayson will take positives from his side's performance against Hull City, despite losing the game.

Speaking to PNE PlayerHD after the game, the gaffer admitted his side need to be more clinical in front of goal, but was pleased with his team's overall performance at the KC Stadium. 

"Unfortunately we've played well but we've not won the game, and I said last week I would take a scrappy 1-0 victory. 

"When you do lose, which we probably were expected to against Ipswich and Hull who are obviously pushing for the top six this year, there is a manner of losing and we can take a lot of positives out of how well we played today. 

"We were pleased with that but disappointed with certain things that didn't go our way, and then ultimately they scored from two set pieces. 

"The first goal for them was against the run of play, like it was last week against Ipswich and we were very unfortunate that Neil Kilkenny has cleared one and it's come off the lad because we were dictating the game at that point. 

"Second half I thought we started well, we limited them to very few opportunities and then we had a great opportunity through Alan Browne to make it 1-1 with a header inside the six-yard box. 

"We have to learn that at this level, you've got to be clinical in the final third but also you can't afford to switch off on the defensive duties."
