Hull City boss Steve Bruce rues mistakes in Derby County defeat

Hull City boss Steve Bruce believes that his side committed many too many errors at the back in their 2-0 defeat to Derby County at the KC Stadium.

Hull City boss Steve Bruce has conceded that his side made too many defensive errors in their 2-0 defeat to Derby County.

The Tigers fell to their first defeat at the KC Stadium this season as a first-half brace from Jacob Butterfield guided Paul Clement's men to the three points.

Bruce believes that the absence of suspended duo Andrew Robertson and Michael Dawson played a role in his side's loss, but he has also praised the Rams for their display.

He told Sky Sports News: "I have to take a huge part in it - maybe too many changes to the system. Derby took advantage in the first 20-25 minutes, and we probably made more mistakes defensively during that period than we have all season.

"We've created enough chances to get a goal, but didn't take one, and if we had maybe we'd have had a different outcome.

"We missed big players tonight and I think that showed, particularly defensively. But all credit to Derby, they've come here and played very, very well and deserved their victory probably."

Hull surrendered top spot in the Championship to the Rams as a result of their defeat.
