Speaking to the Official Site in his post game press conference, Carsley admitted that Hull were unfortunately worthy winners on the night as our winning streak came to an end, and he also commented that they were by far the best team we have faced so far this campaign.

'I thought first half we were good. We had some chances; we had a really good chance early on where against a team of Hull`s quality, we have to take. I didn`t think we were up to much second half to be honest. As the game went on, Hull all got stronger and stronger with the fire power that they`ve got in the team. We were second best, second half but I can`t fault the lads effort and their energy to keep in there, but the power of Hull won in the end.'

With Lasse Vibe going to ground inside of the penalty area, Carsley went on to say it was a caste iron award for him, but it obviously didn't go our way.

'I thought it was from the bench. He`s pulled Lasse`s shirt and he`s gone down. I thought it was at the time but sometimes you don't get these decisions; I don`t want to be one of those coaches that`s moaning about referees - Hull were worthy winners tonight. When you play against a team of Hull`s quality, when you get a chance, you need to score; they`ve been a little bit more clinical with their finishing.'

As for Woods who was also speaking to the media following the game, he knew we needed to have taken our chances in the opening 45 minutes if we were to get anything from the game.

'It`s disappointing to end our run that we`ve been on. We need to take the positives from it. We need to recover well and look forward to Blackburn on Saturday and try to get back on winning ways.'

With the game going their way late on in the second half, the 21 year old went on to repeat that we could definitely take the positives of more than matching a side that has spent a few years in the top flight recently - especially with the playing staff they continue to boast.

'We can match anybody on our day. We needed to take our chances first half and that would have been a completely different game. I think they sat back a lot and countered us with the individuals that they`ve got. The pace they`ve got in the team it does cause a few teams a problem.'

As for himself, he walked away with the official man of the match vote, and whilst that was pleasing for him given how he's settled since his arrival from Shrewsbury Town over the summer, he would've preferred the points.

'I was quite happy with the way I played. Obviously it`s a different position for me but I think I`m relishing in the role a little bit. I like to come inside a lot and do what I normally do in there but I`m enjoying it and I`m playing games, and that`s the main thing for me.'
