Hull City left-back Callum Elder believes there were positives to take from the Tigers’ 2-2 draw at home to Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

The visitors took an early lead through Chey Dunkley, only for Grant McCann’s side to turn it around through goals from Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki.

However, the Latics equalised in the second-half courtesy of 17-year-old Joe Gelhardt.

Elder, who joined Hull on a permanent deal from Leicester City last month, enjoyed making his debut at the KCOM Stadium. He has previously had loan spells away from the Foxes at Peterborough United, Brentford, Barnsley, Wigan and Ipswich Town.

He spoke to the Tigers’ official club website after the game on Saturday: “It was frustrating for us because we felt as though it was two points dropped. That was the collective feeling in the dressing room after the game. But, we need to take the positives from the game and our overall performance. It’s another point in the right direction and one that we can build on.”

We were a real threat at times and I thought we were on top for large spells of the game, but it’s all about capitalising on those moments. And similarly, when opposition teams have their little spells, it’s important we are compact and don’t concede. We definitely need to be more ruthless in both boxes.”

He added: “We are creating chances – it would be more of a worry if we weren’t – but in saying that we do need to start taking those chances.”
