Watch | Nathan Jones' Hull reaction

Manager Nathan Jones was pleased his side could record another Sky Bet Championship victory, stretching their unbeaten run to five matches thanks to a 1-0 win against Hull City.


Elijah Adebayo scored his seventh goal of the season early in the first-half to give the Hatters another win and the gaffer said post-match: “I thought we were the better side in the first half, with a bit more composure we might have scored again but they are fighting for their lives, it is a tough side to play against but to take seven points in a three-game week, I’m absolutely delighted however they come.

Town are flying high in fifth position or as Jones cautiously admitted, joint 11th with seven teams all on 21 points!

“That is how tight the Championship is, but we will take it. Our goal difference is good, this time last year it was poor so every time we did get points, we would be behind them on goal difference.

“To be on 21 points at this stage of the season, even though we believe we should have more, we are in a really good place considering some of the clubs behind us. I’m absolutely delighted with where we are and they have really had to dig in this week and I think we have been excellent.”
