Manager Nick Barmby wants 'ruthless' Hull City

Nick Barmby

Hull City boss Nick Barmby has called on his side to be more ruthless in their last three games of the season.

The East Yorkshire club's play-off hopes are all but over after a run of just one win in eight matches.

During this run the Tigers have scored just four goals and Barmby is keen the campaign ends on a high note.

He told BBC Radio Humberside: "We got a positive performance against Watford but we didn't put the ball in the net and I want us to be more ruthless."

He added: "The last two games I've been pleased that we've been back to creating chances, which we hadn't done too much of in the last few weeks.

"On Saturday we played some good stuff in the final third which was good to see.

"I'm looking to win the next three games just as I would be at any stage of the season."

The 10th-placed Tigers have only managed 41 goals from their 43 fixtures all season, just two more goals than bottom of the table Doncaster.
