"I'm glad we can talk about the game. The better team won by a million miles," Bruce told Hull's website. "If there's an Achilles heel for us, it's the amount of chances we create week after week - our conversion rate has to be better.
"I was delighted with our performance. It was embarrassing the number of times we got in behind them with Brady and Elmohamady, but we couldn't convert to make it comfortable for ourselves. Our goalkeeper barely had a shot to save and in a big derby game, fair play to us."
