Pearson upbeat despite defeat

Hull manager Nigel Pearson felt his players gave a good account of themselves against Cardiff despite falling to a 2-0 defeat.Michael Chopra put the Bluebirds in front with his 10th goal of the season before Arsenal loanee Jay Emmanuel-Thomas wrapped up the points in the 90th minute.Pearson said: "We came up against a good side and when we had chances we were unable to take them."I was disappointed with how the first goal came about. It was a nothing goal and it wasn't like us. The second goal put a slightly different slant on the result."In the last couple of months we've done to sides what Cardiff have done to us, and you have to recognise we came up against a good side and they were better than us."The players are very disappointed because we know it's a game we could have got something out of, and that shows how far we've come. But we need to bounce back. The bigger picture is that we could say it's a missed opportunity, but another way of looking at it is that we haven't lost ground either."
