We Must Keep On Building

Liam Rosenior says there will be no patting each other on the back in the Hull City camp with the aim now to build on their encouraging start to the season.

The Tigers have reached the second international break of the season in eighth place in the Barclays Premier League table with their latest point coming from Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Aston Villa.

Although delighted with the position, Rosenior says it doesn’t surprise him and believes the Tigers must now build up their consistency when league action recommences later this month.

“The manager has told us that Premier League players have to be consistent week in, week out,” said Rosenior.

“I certainly don’t think we can be patting ourselves on the back and saying that we’ve made it just yet. We need to keep this underdog mentality going and try and get as many points as possible.

“Our position in the table doesn’t really surprise me. I know the quality that we’ve got at this club and I think we’re underrated as players, but long may that continue.

“I think every team that has played us this season has realised that they’ve been in a game, including Chelsea, and we’ve got to make sure that we’re always challenging, always competing and you can always see that we’re giving our all for this club.”

The international break means that the Tigers’ training ground will be a quieter place for the next ten days but Rosenior says those that aren’t away playing for their country will continue to put the hard work in ready for forthcoming tough away games against Everton and Spurs.

“Hopefully the lads will come back from international duty fit and ready to go again,” added Rosenior.

“For the rest of us, it will probably be a lot of fitness work to keep us ticking over and make sure we’re ready for two really tough away games.

“We might get an extra day off too, which is lovely for me because I’m getting a bit older now!”
