Hull boss Brett Hodgson was disheartened by his side’s loss against Leeds, but believes that another win isn’t far away.
The Airlie Birds were arguably the better side in the first-half, but didn’t take their chances in the final third, with Hodgson bemoaning a lateral attack.
“I think the first-half we posed plenty of questions, but just played too laterally,” Hodgson said.
“And then the first ten minutes of the second-half, they had about six or seven sets on our try line and eventually that told on us when we got the ball again.
“We didn’t have the energy to deal with Brad Dwyer when he came on, but we’ve go to be stronger to get through those periods.
“It’s fine margins, but we aren’t far away.”
Josh Reynolds and Leeds’ Richie Myler were sent to the sinbin for a coming together near the end, but Hodgson didn’t see anything in it.
“I don’t know what that was, but I thought they were both surprised they got yellow carded and I didn’t see much in it.”
Ahead of St Helens’ visit to the MKM Stadium on Monday, the Hull boss was keen to move on from tonight’s defeat.
“Were not far off, and we’re not going to wallow on this tonight, but it doesn’t get any easier against St Helens.”
