Chuba Akpom Rues Draw Against Blackburn Rovers

27 September 2015, 19:42

London - Hull City striker Chuba Akpom has admitted that the team were disappointed to drop two points in their Championship clash against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, having dominated proceedings at the KC Stadium.

The Tigers seemed to be coasting to victory after Abel Hernandez had put them in front in the 73rd minute but suffered heartbreak in the first minute of second - half added time when Rhodes equalized off a corner by Conway.

''We deserved the three points. In the first half we had a few opportunities and in the second half as well but we conceded so late and we could have avoided that from a set piece,'' Chuba Akpom said.

''We could only think positive from now on and onto the next game.''

The Arsenal loanee had a blistering start to his career at Hull City, notching up two goals in his first two games but has been unfortunate not to add to that tally in his last name games in all competitions.

''Of course as a striker the main thing is to get goals really and it's been a few games now.

'' The main thing for me is to contribute to the team, running around, putting pressure on the defense and assisting.

''I am only thinking positive, I think the goals will come. I just got to keep working hard and practicing,'' the 19-year-old concluded.
