Liverpool striker Lambert happy seeing Hull action

Liverpool striker Rickie Lambert was happy to see action in their stalemate with Hull City.

Lambert was ultimately left with mixed emotions after he couldn't muster up a contribution to beat Steve Bruce's Tigers.

Speaking to the Reds' official website, the striker said: "We were pushing for that goal, but it didn't come. Full credit to Hull, some of their last-ditch tackling was some of the best I've seen.

"We were unlucky not to score on those occasions. We deserved a goal and we're frustrated that we couldn't get it. I was waiting for my chance to get on. My idea going on was to score a winner.

"I didn't manage to do it but I'd like to think I made a contribution. I didn't get a chance to score a goal. We pressured them and we had the chances, we just didn't manage to take them - which is frustrating."
