Grant McCann has stated how pleased he is to see his Hull side compete with a team that he thinks will be ‘right up there’.
The Tigers sit 15th in the Championship after yesterdays draw against Neil Warnock’s Cardiff side.
Hull thought they had won it when Jordy de Wijs put them ahead with just minutes to play, but Danny Ward equalised in added time, meaning McCann’s team had to settle for a point.
They take on a resurgent Sheffield Wednesday side on Tuesday, in what will be another stern test for Hull at the KCOM Stadium.
McCann took positives from the game despite the late goal being conceded and was happy with how they competed with a strong Cardiff side.
Speaking to HullLive, McCann said: “The positive for us to take is that we’ve matched a team that’s come down from the Premier League for most of the game.
“They’re a good team and I’ve said to the team that they’ll be right up there.
“My players have shown today that they can compete with teams like Cardiff.
“I’ve not been here long, three or four months, so for us to compete with a team like that is a huge step in the right direction for us.”
It was a strong, positive display from McCann’s side and they’ll be hoping that they can carry that on against a really good Wednesday side in midweek.
He seems to have Hull playing better than they were at the start of the season and is slowly building the side as they look to progress up the league.
It’ll be interesting to see if they can turn some of these draws into wins, then they might look to mount a challenge in the top half.
