Instant Reactions - Nottingham Forest v Hull (10/2/18)
Following today's clash between Nottingham Forest and Hull City, here are the instant reactions from both managers.
Nottingham Forest hosted Hull City at the City Ground for a 3pm kick off on Saturday February 10, with the visitors taking a two nil victory on the day.
Jon Toral gave Hull the lead in the ninth minute of the game before Harry Wilson added a second prior to the half time break.
Forest only managed one shot on target as they fell to their fourth loss in five in the league but the woodwork stopped Matty Cash from getting the scoresheet in the game and had that gone in it might have turned out differently.

Speaking to the BBC's cameras a short time after match day referee Oliver Langford blew the final whistle, Nottingham Forest manager Aitor Karanka explained.
'I told the players that this is about pressure and managing pressure. It is not easy to play in this situation. I came here to win games and be successful and I am not going to stop until we make that happen. It was another poor afternoon and I hope it is the last one. It is difficult to understand. I understand the crowd's frustration. I am still confident. We have made a lot of changes in the last two weeks.'
Hull City head coach Nigel Adkins in his comparative interview explained.
'It was good to win. The players have been working hard and showed resilience. We scored from a corner and the second was exceptional counter-attacking football at its best. Defensively we were solid and very resolute in what we were doing. Forest didn't have any chances and it was an exceptionally good away performance. It was great to celebrate with supporters at the end, as that is so important at this moment in time.'
