Speaking to the BBC's cameras a short time after match day referee David Coote blew the final whistle, Hull head coach Nigel Adkins explained.
'That was by way and beyond the worst performance since I've been at the football club, I need to get to the bottom of it. The first half was nowhere near the level that's expected and the level that the players have been producing on a consistent basis. I'm very annoyed, I'm trying to keep a calm voice for this, but I thought we were nowhere near what was expected.'
Millwall manager Neil Harris in his comparative interview explained.
'The players were outstanding. Five away wins in a row is a big achievement for us. A lot of people wrote us off at the start of the season to be bottom of the league. To get to where we are 10 games to go is not a bad response from that team. I've just said to the players, 'I want 60 points as quick as possible. See where that takes us.''
