Steve Bruce laments missed chances after Hull held by battling West Brom
Bruce's side took a deserved lead through Jake Livermore but Matej Vydra earnt the home side a share of the points
Steve Bruce was left ruing missed opportunities as his Hull side were held 1-1 by managerless West Bromwich Albion.
The visitors took a deserved first-half lead through Jake Livermore but were denied an away win by Matej Vydra's equaliser four minutes from time.
And Bruce admitted that despite a creditable point he felt his side deserved all three.
"It feels in the dressing room afterwards like we have lost the game," he said after the game. "I can't remember my goalkeeper making a save in the second half.
Home goalkeeper Ben Foster kept the Tigers at bay and Bruce was left to curse his side's inability to kill the game off when they had the chance.
"We frustrated West Brom and counter-attacked them and Jake Livermore took his goal well," he said.
"We had the best chance to seal it and at 2-0 we would have put the game to bed but Ben Foster has made a great double save.
"Maybe I'm nit-picking but we're frustrated and disappointed. Before the game we probably would have taken a point. We're 20 points at Christmas so we're bang on schedule."
