Hull boss Phil Brown refused to single out individuals for praise after watching his side's remarkable start to the season continue with a 3-0 win at West Brom.

Boaz Myhill, Kamil Zayatte and Geovanni were all outstanding as Hull won for a fourth game in succession but Brown preferred to focus on the collective winning mentality of his side.

Brown said: "We were poor in the first half but raised our standards in the second and consequently got the result that we deserved.

He continued: "We rode our luck in the first half but came out of the traps in the second and scored from a set-piece, which we are getting better at.

"That mentality not to concede a goal is the best thing about our team at the moment.

"Boaz was top drawer, deserved his clean sheet - but it was nice to keep them to shots outside the penalty box in the second half as opposed to clear-cut chances.

"Without the quality of the defending Geovanni would be nothing, he is in a team.

"We went 3-0 up and he started doing flicks and backheels and giving possession away, and that's the reason he came off.

"Kamil has played his part, but no individuals deserve any kind of praise at the moment. The team spirit is the main reason why we are getting results.

"Kamil Zayatte will be the first to say Michael Turner is the reason why he is playing well, Michael Turner will be the first to say Kamil Zayatte is the reason why he is playing well."
