Hull FC coach Peter Gentle says his players need to learn to close out matches if they are to make an impact in the play-offs.

Hull twice let a 12-point lead slip against Salford Reds before finally securing a 34-26 victory at the KC Stadium with a late try by ex-Salford man Jordan Turner.

The result leaves Salford four points off the top eight, while the Airlie Birds reinforced their top-six aspirations with a second successive victory.

"We did our best to throw it away and we got out to 12-point leads twice, but we leaked a bit of pressure and they fought their way back into it," said Gentle.

"We knew how important this game was to them and we kept sending out invitations for them to play some footy against us.

"It is frustrating because we are looking at the semi-finals coming up and if you get 12 points up in a semi-final you can't gift sides field position in the way we did.

"On the plus side, it was the first time we've managed to win on the back of a derby game and we did well getting over the physical and emotional fatigue that follows a derby.

"We overcame that well and it was a gutsy effort, but our execution was poor at times."

Salford coach Phil Veivers bemoaned a lack of consistency after watching two points once again slip away from his side's grasp.

"I'm very disappointed because we fought back well," said Veivers. "We let some soft tries in but came back well.

"The try right on half-time killed us and if we could have held out it may have been a different story.

"It is another one that has got away this year and it is very frustrating. The lack of consistency has been the story of our season - it is a subject we have broached many times and it is the area this team needs to improve in."
