Boaz Myhill: Supporters right to boo struggling Hull City

Hull City goalkeeper Boaz Myhill had no complaint with the boos raining down from the stands as Phil Brown's side fell to their fourth defeat in six games at the weekend.

Myhill was one of a select few Hull players who emerged with their reputations intact after a disappointing 1-0 home defeat to Alex McLeish's Birmingham City on Saturday afternoon.

With the club sitting 19th in the league, ahead of only Portsmouth who have lost six out of six, Myhill can understand why fans chose to vocalise their anger with recent performances despite Hull embarking on only the second top-flight campaign in their history.

"I refuse to criticise our fans for booing us off the pitch," said Myhill. "They have followed us all over the place in all kinds of divisions. We'll do better for them next week, we've got to. Nobody likes losing.

"I thought before the game we've got a month against similar sorts of teams and we can go into them with confidence thinking we can get three points. We're disappointed with the way we've played and we have to do better, simple as that."

Manager Phil Brown admits his side are feeling the pressure having won only two of their past 28 Premier League games. Their next two fixtures are a trip to Anfield to face Liverpool and a home game against unbeaten Chelsea.

"I feel pressure on the team for sure," Brown said. "I have seen players pass the ball off the field when they're under no pressure, players that have played at this level for a number of years.

"Yes, you can see pressure but it's up to myself and the backroom staff to lift that pressure. I'm not going to shirk any kind of responsibility. I'm not after patience from anybody, I'm after results, that's the business that we're in. Hopefully, those results will come sooner rather than later."
