Hughton: 'Hull Is A Difficult Place To Go'!

Last updated : 15 March 2009 By Footy Mad - Editor
We reported on this site three weeks ago that four wins from our last 13 games would save us from the drop.

Since then we have lost to Man Utd and Bolton and drawn with Everton and Hull.

So that is now FOUR wins from NINE matches ... and we've only won one in the last 13 ... and that was against basement club West Brom.

Chris Hughton: "We're disappointed we didn't get three points.

"I think having given a poor goal away first half we were delighted to get back on even terms. But we felt the way we conducted ourselves second half was like a team that wanted to go for a win rather than settle for a draw.

"I think at that stage Hull had settled for a draw. So, yes, we are disappointed but we didn't show enough quality in the areas that mattered.

"I'm disappointed that we can't get the points we desperately need to get us away from that group of teams at the bottom of the league.

"I think we can take something from the fact that we have come to a very difficult place and got a point, and other results have gone quite well for us, but we are still disappointed.

"I don't think it's about pressure, there are now another nine games, but we realise the situation we are in and if we don't get results it is going to be a dogfight through until the end of the season. The quicker we can get those points the better.

"We know where we are, we have 27 points to fight for and it is going to be equally as tough for all the teams around us."
