Leonid Slutsky: ‘Very difficult thinking about the future’

Hull City manager Leonid Slutsky admits he is finding tricky to think about the future after failing to win in their last seven matches.

The Tigers earned a 2-2 draw away at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, with goals from Frazier Campbell and Michael Dawson either side of the game cancelling out Gary Hooper’s second half brace.

The result means that City’s winless run dates back to the 21st of October, where they won 1-0 away at Barnsley. Slustky said after the draw with Wednesday that he cannot afford to look to far into the future.

“Each match is very important for us”, said Slutsky in speaking to the Yorkshire Post.

“For me (it is) very difficult thinking about (the) future.”

Hull were on the back foot for the majority of the match on Saturday, with their equaliser coming in the fifth minute of second half.

Slutsky felt that they could not get into the match, as they did not have a tall striker, which prevented them from playing direct football.

He added: “I try to analyse the game and I now understand our problem.

“We don’t have a big forward and we don’t have the possibility (for) somebody control the ball or keep the ball.

“First half we played really well, we controlled the game, we scored. We stay deeper because we tried to keep our result because we don’t have the confidence when we concede a lot of goals.”

“Each team in Championship has a big forward who can win their challenges and it is very difficult, especially when you’re tired.”
