The Tigers remain fourth in the table despite slipping to a 2-1 defeat at Cardiff at the weekend in their third match in eight days.

Hull striker Jay Simpson had an effort ruled out for hand-ball just before half-time, while Robert Koren's last-minute strike came too late to affect the result.

Bruce blamed tiredness after admitting his players were second best in the Welsh capital.

"It was our third game in a week and I toyed with changing things around, but hindsight is a wonderful thing," said Bruce after his side's sixth defeat of the season.

"When I look at us, our worst performances are in the third game (of the week). We'll learn from it and I'll learn for next time."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
