"We have to be more ruthless and more nasty" says Blues boss

Paul Lambert says that Hull's clinical edge was the difference between the teams in Town's 3-0 home defeat to The Tigers.

Mallik Wilks opened the scoring after two minutes, with Josh Magennis notching Hull's second at the end of a first half where Blues had seen the majority of the play.

Tom Eaves put the game to bed after the break for the top of the table visitors.

"The early goal was a poor goal, it gives you a little bit of a hill to climb," Paul told iFollow Ipswich.

"I think they probably had two attacks in the first half and scored. The third goal, we were punished by a slack pass, that wasn’t good enough.

"We have to be more ruthless and more nasty. We’ve got to be more clinical in what we’re doing.

"There’s no time to dwell on it. They were more clinical than us in both boxes and ultimately, that’s what has cost us the game."

Paul also confirmed that Freddie Sears, who came off in the first half, has picked up a hamstring injury.
