Beale: Players Working Hard To Improve Results
Jon Beale says his Hull City Under-23s players are leaving ‘no stone unturned’ in their quest to get back to winning ways in the Professional Development League.
The Tigers have lost their last three league outings and are without a win in four since registering a 3-0 win at Burnley in September.
While frustrated at recent results, Beale has been pleased with his side's efforts in training ahead of Saturday's clash with Nottingham Forest at the KCOM Stadium.
"We're on a disappointing run of form at the minute but we're working hard on the training pitch and hopefully we'll get our rewards on Saturday," he said.
"We performed well last time out at the KCOM Stadium against Sheffield Wednesday, especially in the first half, but lost the game after missing a penalty late on and then conceding a stoppage-time winner.
"And then against Leeds, there were plenty of positives to take from the way we played even though we lost the game. We score a really good goal and played some good stuff in the second half.
"So the performance levels and effort from the boys have been there, but sometimes you just need that little bit of luck to go with those two elements to push you over the line.
"The lads have grafted all week though and are leaving no stone unturned in order to turn things around and get back to winning ways. Hopefully, we can do that as a team against Nottingham Forest on Saturday."
