Hull boss Phil Brown said: "The players and I need a rest and we'll be going away for four or five days.
"It's good that it's come at this time before Newcastle next week."
But Brown said: "They had five shots on target and won 5-0.
"We slipped up but with five shots on target, 5-0 is a tough one to swallow.
"We were without George Boateng, Anthony Gardner and Marlon King for various reasons and what we had out there was a Championship team.
"The Premier League does punish you and I can't accept our defending for the first goal."
