Super League: Injury to Tom Lineham spoils victory for Hull FC over Bradford Bulls
Before the game I said I wanted a result from anywhere and to play any way, and we did that and I think that is important going into next week's fixture (at Castleford).

Hull coach Lee Radford was happy to get back to winning ways after seeing his side beat Bradford 44-16 at the KC Stadium.
The hosts rallied from conceding in the second minute to cross six times in a strong first-half showing. Although they took their foot of the gas after the break, they ran out comfortable winners.
Yet the result was the most important thing for Radford having gone into the game off the back of consecutive losses away to St Helens and Warrington.
"The second half was a little bit disappointing but I thought some of the footy we played in the first half was really pleasing," said the former Bradford forward.
"Before the game I said I wanted a result from anywhere and to play any way, and we did that and I think that is important going into next week's fixture (at Castleford)."
A late ankle injury to Tom Lineham took some of the gloss off the result for Hull and Radford confirmed the winger would go for an X-ray to discover the extent of the damage, admitting "it did not look great".
Opposite number Francis Cummins admitted the beleaguered Bulls - who remain at the foot of the table on minus two points - paid the price for their mistakes during the first 40 minutes.
"We got down there twice in the first half and scored both times," he said. "We just came up with error after error and it seemed to be what could go wrong went wrong.
"It can be a cruel game if you want to give the ball away and especially when Hull are playing well like that. They have got some big fellas who can start to get some momentum and we just kept handing it back to them."
On-loan Wigan forward Greg Burke picked up a shoulder injury on his debut for the Yorkshire club and could now be set for a spell on the sidelines.
Cummins added: "He's got a sore shoulder. It's not looking good for Greg at the moment. We'll get him straight to X-ray now and see how that develops."
