Hull City midfielder Ahmed Elmohamady insists that the squad must cut out “little mistakes” if they are to start moving away from the relegation zone.
Steve Bruce’s side currently lie in the bottom three so are in desperate need of points as they look to address a poor first half of the campaign.
The Tigers have claimed just five victories in all competitions since the start of the season, with their most recent win coming over Everton on January 1.
However, since that victory over the Merseyside outfit they have failed to find the back of the net in the following three outings.
Elmohamady has been a key member of the set-up at the KC Stadium over the past couple of seasons and he believes that they still have the ability to get out of trouble.
Hull, who are priced at 2.40 to be relegated, were beaten 3-0 by West Ham at the weekend and the Egypt international believes individual errors were costly.
Elmohamady said: “When you look at last Sunday’s game at West Ham, you can see that it was the little mistakes we made that were the difference.
“At Premier League level, you can’t afford to be making these mistakes but unfortunately they sometimes happen in football.
“Every goal can be traced back to a mistake and what we have to do is learn from the mistakes that we’ve made, improve and keep going.
“It was a disappointing day, especially with the additional injuries that we picked up as well.”
