He also said that his team failed to stop a few of Hull's shots but continued their attacking style of play that ultimately sealed a victory for them.
The first half of the match saw both the teams at an equal level. However, Leeds prevailed in the second half when Helder Costa's cross was headed in as an own goal by Hull City defender Jordy de Wijs in the 73rd minute. Right after that, Leeds Goalkeeper stopped a shot taken by Tom Eaves who ultimately failed to grab an equaliser for Hull. This led to the second goal of the match after a counterattack by the Whites.
