Sone Aluko has admitted that he was frustrated that he was not named in the starting line – up for Hull City’s first two Championship games of the new season.
But the Nigeria international was delighted that he made his first start of the season against Fulham on Wednesday and registered his first goal for The Tigers since December 2014.
“Every player wants to play and it has been frustrating coming off the bench in the first two league games,” Aluko told the official website of Hull City, hullcitytigers.com.
“I was itching for my chance and I knew I had to play well when it came last night. I managed to create some chances and score a goal, so I’m pleased with how it went.
“But it was more important that the team got all three points.”[post_ad]
In their next fixture, Hull City, who are second in the standings, are guests to Charlton Athletic.
