After losing 3-0 away to West Ham this weekend, Hull City manager Steve Bruce admits the lack of goals scored is starting to be a real problem this season, reports Sky
Hull were on top in the first-half against West Ham, but the Tigers couldn’t make their dominance count in the opening 45 minutes of football. After the break, it was West Ham who took advantage, scoring minutes into the second-half, before two more goals piled misery onto City.
“When you’re on top and you come away from home and create as many chances as we did, you have to score. And there it is – our inability to score – our Achilles heel. We all know how difficult it is, but the top end of the pitch is the most crucial one. It’s a shame because we played very well in the first half. But you’ve got to get in front,” said Bruce.
