Defender Curtis Davies has said that Hull City must take the positives of an improved performance against Watford this weekend.

Travelling to Vicarage Road for the game, Hull looked set to pick up a hard earned point on the day until Michael Dawson’s unfortunate late goal stopped us from bringing the run of defeats to an end.

Speaking to the Official Site Davies said that with six league losses on the spin now, the players just have to have faith in their own abilities and take confidence from the performance, even if the result wasn’t what we wanted.

‘Our performances haven`t been up at the level required recently, but on Saturday everyone did their job and in the end it`s the fine margin of an own goal in the last ten minutes that was the difference. Hopefully the luck will change and we`ll be on the other end of own goals further down the line.’

Davies went on to say that he felt the performance was improved in all areas on Saturday, but of course we needed to be sharper and more clinical with chances that come our way, as if we can take the lead and have something to hang onto that would be a boost for confidence.

‘The performance on Saturday was much better, as a team and as individuals. We know we need to be more ruthless at the top end of the field to give ourselves a few goals to hang on to. I thought the system (3-5-2) worked well and having three centre-halves in the team usually makes you a bit more solid. With two up front, you`re expecting to create a few more chances as well. It was strange because we had 3-5-2 against 3-5-2, so it was pretty much man-for-man all over the pitch. It was an interesting battle and probably why it was on the verge of being a stalemate. Unfortunately, in the end it went against us.’
