Post-Match Reaction: Nigel Adkins

Nigel Adkins was satisfied with another away point to round off the season after watching the Tigers draw 1-1 at Brentford on Sunday.

Jarrod Bowen was on the scoresheet for Adkins’ side who went close to taking home all three points, but Harry Wilson saw a second half penalty saved.

“I thought both teams played some really good football in hot conditions,” said Adkins.

“It was a game that both sides could enjoy with nothing on it. We had a lot of supporters behind us and I think they enjoyed their afternoon. We gave the ball away a bit too cheaply at times, but all in all we’ve got another point away from home and that’s now four away games unbeaten and something to take forward into next season.

“We started the game quite brightly in possession but then we started to give the ball away too cheaply and you can’t do that against Brentford because they’re a good passing side. We were better with the ball after half time and it’s just a shame that Harry Wilson missed the penalty because we could have come away with all three points. It was a good save by their goalkeeper to be fair.

“The team selection was with one eye on next season and it was a great day for Dan Batty, a lad that has come through our Academy to make his first league start. He played the full 90 minutes and we’re really pleased for him.

“There were a few others involved who needed some game time and it was great to get Evandro back on the field in the second half.

“We’ve got a group of young, hungry players who want to do well next season.”
