Hull boss rues lack of goals

Pearson admits that his side ‘need to start scoring’, following their heaviest defeat against the Whites since 1956.

“We shot ourselves in the foot tonight,” said Pearson.

“After they started a bit better than us, once we equalised, I think we were relatively comfortable and looked dangerous.

“But the goals either side of half-time and the fashion in which we conceded them caught us out.

“I can’t keep talking about us creating chances and not taking them. It was a poor result for us, as simple as that. We need to start scoring them, whether that’s with the people we have or with new personnel.

“I need to find some answers.”
