Bruce - We are not safe yet

Last Updated: Fri, 28 Mar 2014 17:21

Hull City defender Alex Bruce insists his side must continue to work hard as he believes they are still in danger of being relegated.

The Tigers have impressed some critics this season, after progressing to the club's first FA Cup semi-final, while sitting 13th in the Premier League table.

Steve Bruce's side are currently on 33 points, but they were pegged back by fellow mid-table side West Ham on Wednesday as they were beaten 2-1 at Upton Park.

They will take on Stoke on Saturday, with both teams desperate for all three points in the fight for survival. With Fulham, Cardiff and Sunderland all struggling for points, Hull are well fancied to stay up, which you can back using your free bet.

Despite their current cushion, Bruce has urged his team-mates to carry on fighting until survival is guaranteed.

He said: "We are nearly there but no-one believes we are safe yet. Not at all.

"We can't because football can be a really strange game. There are some big games coming up but if we play like we did at West Ham then I am sure we will be okay.

"We can take a lot of confidence out of the game. It was a really good performance and if we play like that for the rest of the season, we will win more than we lose."
