Pearson: We Could Have Won It

Hull City boss Nigel Pearson was pleased with a point against Swansea City but said his side could have taken all three points after they cancelled out Mark Gower's opening strike.

The match looked like heading for a goalless draw before Gower fired in a wonderful shot from 25 yards, but Hull City showed a boost in momentum which the Swans struggled to cope with. Their equaliser gave them a boost in confidence and Rodgers' side struggled to break them down and create enough clear chances in front of goal.

Hull City did have chances to win the game after equalising, as De Vries had to make a fantastic save in a one-on-one situation as the player tried to go around the Dutch goalkeeper.

Pearson said:

'It is a good result but it could have better because we had the better chances throughout the game.

'We had two free headers from set-pieces, their keeper made a couple of one-on-one saves and we could have had a penalty.

'But a victory may have been unfair on Swansea because they are a team I have a lot of respect for. Their style should be applauded but I thought we were very effective.

'And for all Swansea's attractive football, I don't think they created too many chances against us. We were frustrated with ourselves in the first half. We worked very hard without the ball but we were poor in possession.

'We started the second half very well and the players deserve a lot of credit for a lot of discipline and willingness to put the team first.'
