Bruce: Elmohamady could have made it easier
Hull City manager Steve Bruce reflected on his side’s performace during their 0-2 win away to MK Dons on Saturday.
Elmohamady scored the first of the Tigers‘ two goals, but went on to miss a remarkably easy chance in the final seconds of the first half.
The Egyptian rounded MK Dons ‘keeper David Martin, before inexplicably missing an open goal.
“It was never easy and we didn’t play that well,” Bruce remarked to the Hull Daily Mail.
“However, we showed a certain resilience and a doggedness to make sure that we won the game. There’s one or two chances where we could have made it two, Elmohamady’s in particular, and that might have made it a bit easier,” he continued.
“But fair play to MK Dons they play in a certain way, they pass the ball around, they try and play from the back and keep possession and it’s not easy. But we’ve done enough to win comfortably without playing well,” the 54-year-old concluded.
