Hull City failed to win yet again in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce has told The Hull Daily Mail that he was not pleased with his side’s first-half performance against Leeds United away from home on Saturday afternoon.

The Tigers failed to return to winning ways in the Championship, as they went down 2-1 to Leeds at Elland Road.

Chris Wood put the Whites in the lead on the half-hour mark when he turned in Stuart Dallas's cross from close range.

Tom Adeyemi made it 2-0 to Leeds on the stroke of half time, but Ahmed Elmohamady halved the deficit when he headed home for Hull in the 51st minute.

“We let the supporters down, in the first-half in particular,” Bruce told The Hull Daily Mail. “I didn't enjoy watching us one little bit.

“Not many teams come from two goals down in this league and we simply didn't do the basics right.”

Over the course of the 90 minutes at Elland Road, Hull had 60% of the possession, took 16 shots of which just five were on target, and earned six corners.

The Tigers are fourth in the Championship table at the moment with 35 points from 19 matches, six points behind leaders Brighton & Hove Albion.
