Defender says Tigers' performance and spirit should have got them over the winning line....
Having seen the Tigers’ team spirit and togetherness come so close to claiming all three points against Stoke City despite playing for more than 75 minutes with only ten men on Sunday, Paul McShane admits there was a sense of disappointment in the changing room at full time.
A late Ryan Shawcross leveller, which came just seconds after a controversial decision from the match officials, denied a battling Hull City side victory in a 1-1 draw at the KC to leave McShane and his team-mates with mixed feelings.
“The big positive was that it was a good team performance, especially after going down to ten men,” said McShane.
“We made it hard for Stoke and I think the crowd appreciated the hard work that we put in. We really fought for each other out there and overall it was a good performance.
“But it’s hard not to look back on the game with disappointment. At the moment we had the man sent off, we probably would have taken a point.
“From there, we dug it out and came together as a team to make us hard to beat and got the goal to go ahead.
“To be pulled back in the way that it happened was disappointing.”
