Hull coach Peter Gentle felt his players deserved "plenty of credit" after their 26-16 win over Warrington - but insisted there was still room for improvement.

The in-form Airlie Birds made if five wins in their last six Super League outings at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, scoring 20 points without reply to turn around a 16-6 deficit.

Their upturn in fortunes has coincided with the return to fitness of Gareth Ellis and Daniel Holdsworth, though Gentle felt he had seen signs before then that his squad were improving.

"They clearly give us a lot of direction, but the key was probably being able to bring them back into a winning side," he said of his two big-name recruits in the off-season.

"We've been building for quite a while. There's a real confidence about us. The boys have been working hard and they deserve plenty of credit."

Tom Briscoe and Richard Whiting both bagged two tries for the Black and Whites while winger Tom Lineham also touched down in the second half.

"I still think there are things we can get better at," Gentle added. "We lacked a bit of composure in the first half.

"There was plenty of energy and enthusiasm but our execution could have been better and it was good to get a chat with them at half-time."

Gracious

Warrington coach Tony Smith was gracious in defeat, admitting Hull had deserved to take the two points. He was, though, far from critical of his own team in a losing cause.

"Hull deserved to win," he said. "They were a little bit more energetic than us in a couple of areas.

"There wasn't much between the two teams. They were both very committed to their defence and worked very hard to make it tough for their opponents to score.

"I'm pleased with the effort we put in. We weren't quite at our best in terms of handling but I can accept that. We just need to be a bit more clinical in these close matches."
