A relieved Bristol City boss Keith Millen saw his outfit score their first home goal this season as they drew 1-1 with Hull in the Championship.

Millen said: "I'm paid to make tough decisions at times and, while some of the fans didn't like the substitutions, they helped us draw the game.

"We needed some fresh legs up front and the whole team showed a great attitude after falling behind.

"We could easily have folded after Hull scored and the fact that we stormed back convinces me we shall be alright this season.

"Brett's goal has lifted some pressure off us. After we scored you could see there was more belief in our attacking play.

"Now we have to take that into Tuesday's home game with Reading. There has been no doubting the effort of the players and now we have something to build on."

Hull boss Nigel Pearson felt there was an infringement leading up to City’s equaliser.

"My players are furious that we were not awarded a free kick and I can understand their frustration" he said.

"As a manager, all I am looking for is consistency from referees and their assistants. We didn't get that today and it cost us dear.

"We have defended brilliantly throughout the game, as has been the case in recent matches, and looked like holding on for another excellent victory.

"Instead, we are going home bitterly disappointed at not taking all three points, having scored a very good goal to get our noses in front."
