Cape Town - Steve Bruce laments the fine margins for error in the English Premiership which have cost his side dearly following a bright start to the season.

Hull City failed to capitalise on a great fightback against Manchester City where they came from two goals down to level the game before the Citizens again opened up a two goal cushion.

Steve Bruce, linked with Alan Pardew's job at Newcastle, has seen his side score goals but continue to leak goals at the other end.

Hull have drawn three of their six games in the English Premiership this season while the Tigers have won just one game.

“At Newcastle we scored two, two more again (on Saturday), two at West Brom in midweek so we just have to stay positive and keep believing we’re doing the right things."

Bruce remains positive for the season ahead: “I’ve been very pleased even though we haven’t picked up the points.”

“Six points doesn’t really do our start justice. "We could have done with another four or five but that’s the Premier League.

"I suppose every manager is saying what if we’d done this or that, because it’s fine margins.

“I do feel we are better. The squad is better in depth but we’ve got a long, long way to go.

“It’s a huge week but we’ve got to stay positive. For large periods of that game we did very well.”

Bruce's side lie in 16th position after six games.

Hull City next host Crystal Palace at The KC Stadium on Saturday, October 4 at 16:00.
