JUST BIN : Liam Rosenior warns Hull City players ahead of championship play-off

Liam Rosenior warns Hull City to stay switched on in Championship play-off race

Liam Rosenior believes Huddersfield Town did Hull City a favor last week by reminding them of the perils of shutting down psychologically.
Neutrals watching the Tigers win 2-1 at Southampton would be startled to learn that they are just the Championship’s sixth-best club and that this was their first three-game winning streak of the season.

What lets them down are periodic slips in concentration.
On Saturday, they conceded a goal against Huddersfield, allowing Jack Rudoni to equalise in the second additional minute before Jacob Greaves responded with a goal.

“People talked about our possession, pressing, and energy (at Southampton), but how focused we were on set plays and restarts, those are the professional habits you need to be successful in this league,” Rosenior said ahead of Saturday’s early kick-off against fellow play-off contenders West Bromwich Albion.
“The Huddersfield goal maybe worked out for the best because it was a genuine shock to the guys and a reminder for them.

“The goal started with a throw-in.

“We want to accomplish something, and the only way to do so is to work hard and stay grounded.

“I have a confident squad; just recall Jaden (Philogene)’s goal against Rotherham when we were 1-0 down, but I need a switched-on, professional bunch.

“I don’t want them to become overconfident, but I do want them to have a degree of confidence that matches the way we play. You must have confidence, boldness, and trust in your teammates to pass him the ball when he is marked at times.

“February and March are the most difficult months because you’re fatigued mentally and that’s why you see the results, you see more goals and more mistakes.”

Hull reported no new injuries and were encouraged by a visit from Liam Delap on Thursday.

The striker, on loan from Manchester City, has been sidelined since New Year’s Day with a knee injury.

“He was in the team meeting and it’s nice to see him in the kit and around the lads,” Rosenior went on to say. “I hope he’ll be back running in two weeks. Hopefully.

“So far, everything is proceeding as planned. He’s out of a brace, off crutches, walking perfectly, and the lads were overjoyed to see him.
