Tom Huddlestone apologised to Hull City fans for his "ridiculous" attitude after missing a penalty as the FA Cup runners up emerged from their first foray into Europe in their 110-year history with a goalless draw at Slovakian side Trencin.

Steve Bruce's side will be ruing not coming home with the advantage from this Europa League third round first leg outing in Zilina.

After an hour's play Shane Long was brought down in the area. But the golden opportunity went begging as Huddlestone's penalty was easily saved by Milos Volesak.

Huddlestone had an immediate chance at redemption from the rebound but his shot grazed the crossbar with an open goal at his mercy.

"Can only apologise to everyone for a lapse in concentration and thinking I had scored the rebound before I had. Ridiculous on my behalf," he wrote.

"On a positive note, the lads worked hard and defended well throughout deserved our clean-sheet. All to play for next week."

There were defeats for two of Scotland's representatives with Real Sociedad beating Aberdeen 2-0 and St Johnstone losing 2-1 at home to Spartak Trnava of Slovakia.
