The Tigers remain in an automatic promotion place despite seeing their four-game winning run disappear as they drew 0-0 with Leicester.

And his side's lack of ruthlessness in front of goal is frustrating, and beginning to concern, him.

"The big chances - we should be scoring," he said. "Anyone who has seen us over the past four or five months will know that's the frustration.

"In big games especially, you can't be expected to create eight or nine chances.

"Today we've had four or five. Really we've got to take one of them in a big game.

"It's gnawing away at us all. It's not just the goalscoring it's all round we've got to contribute.

"Look at Abdoulaye. I'm shouting 'goal' as soon as I see him with that big head three yards out coming towards it.

"You think it's in the net. It's all round that the chances have come. I hope it's not going to be our Achilles heel."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
