Hull City

Bowen Confident Of Climbing Table

13 September 2019
Jarrod Bowen believes Hull City’s current league position is not a true reflection of the team’s abilities and says they will be doing everything they can to climb up it.

The Tigers have accumulated five points from their opening six games of the 2019/20 Championship campaign – a tally which sees them in 20th place in the table.

However, Bowen knows what Grant McCann’s team is capable of producing and says he and his team-mates’ sights are firmly set on putting a positive run of form together – starting with this weekend’s home clash against Wigan Athletic.

“Our league position doesn’t necessarily reflect how well we’ve been playing as a team,” the 22-year-old said.

“Unfortunately, lapses of concentration in spells have cost us in a number of games this season.

“It’s frustrating but we know we’re good enough to correct it. The gaffer has mentioned it on a number of occasions now, we have to make sure we kill games off when we’re on top. We have to score more goals when we’re dominating play.

“With the chances we’ve created so far this season and the quality we have in the attacking third of the pitch, we should have scored more goals.

“It’s frustrating, but we had a presentation with the gaffer the other day and he highlighted the fact that Norwich were on the same amount of points as us after six games last year and they went on to enjoy a memorable season.

“We know the quality we’ve got and we know we’re capable of winning games. We’re only six games into the season, so there’s no-one feeling downbeat or disheartened.

“It might be a different story if we were in the back end of the season but there’s still so much football to play.

“Our confidence is still high because of the standard of performances we’ve produced. We know we’re playing well, it’s just maintaining our levels for 90 minutes.

“As the weeks have gone by, we’ve got fitter, better and stronger as a team and we know we just need to get those wins under our belt.

“We’ve got a good run of games now to pick up points and we’re determined to do so in order to push us up the table.”
