West Brom boss Tony Mowbray believes he has yet to discover the full value of his side's point at Hull.
The Barclays Premier League's bottom side twice came from behind to claim a 2-2 draw at the KC Stadium, with a Jay Simpson strike and Chris Brunt penalty in the second half. Bernard Mendy had opened the scoring for Hull with a superb individual effort, before making the second for Craig Fagan with a pinpoint cross.
"The first half was a non-event. Credit to Hull - they asked questions and put the ball forward - but it was a non-event as a football match. There was little constructive play," said Mowbray. "The second half, by contrast, was a more exciting occasion."
He added: "I don't know if it was the right result. I think if anyone was going to win it at the end it was going to be us.
"But it keeps our points total ticking over. Away from home in the Premier League, it is very hard to get results."
Only further progress in the fixtures to come will ensure their efforts are not in vain.
"We have taken a point - and we have got to follow it up with a victory against Newcastle United. It will be a very good point then," Mowbray added.
"I wasn't particularly pleased with anything in the first half. We were as poor as we have been all season.
"We weren't really at the races - but in the second half we managed to get more of a grip on it."
