Millen's View: Hull City away 2-0

Millen's View: Hull City away 2-0
Bristol City paid for putting in a non-performance at Hull on Saturday, with the home side coming out 2-0 winners.

City were out of sorts, while Hull were more up for the game with players wanting to impress their new owners Assem and Ehab Allam, who completed their takeover of the club last week.

Jay Simpson - who was a summer transfer target for former City boss Steve Coppell - decided Saturday would be a good day to get his first goal for the club, and then celebrated it with another.
Bristol City manager Keith Millen admitted his side were not at the races.

He said: "We have been on a good run, and I think the most disappointing thing about the game today was that we didn't perform as we have been doing.

"We have probably forgotten what it is like to play away from home because we have had three home games in a row and it seems like a long time since we've been away.

"When you are away from home, you need to have a different mentality. We spent too much of the game in the comfort zone and were not aggressive enough in our play.

"I don't think there was much between the two teams in the game. I thought we had the better chances in the opening 10 minutes or so and their crowd went a bit quiet.

"But their first goal was scored too easily following a throw-in, and the goal in the second half was scored on the counter-attack, so both were disappointing from our point of view.

"We didn't really see any response from the lads until after the second goal, which was too late. In games you can't wait until you are one or two goals down before starting to play."
