Hull City have plenty to build on says Liam Rosenior after 'outstanding' clash with Swansea City

HULL CITY boss Liam Rosenior believes his team’s display at home to Swansea City bodes well for the 2023-24 Championship campaign.

The Tigers went ahead against in-form Swansea after three minutes when defender Ben Cabango chested into his own net.

But the visitors, who went into the game on the back of four straight wins, responded well from that setback and deserved to equalise through Luke Cundle’s curling finish six minutes before half-time.

“The game was an outstanding performance from both teams,” said Rosenior. “We both look really good at this level.

“I think we more than matched them and created the outstanding chances.

“They dominated the ball, but I expected that and I was so proud of the players as they never stopped running and trying.

“We are building as a team. I was delighted with the goal – it was an unbelievable team goal.
