The 21-year-old ended a period of nearly four months on the treatment table due to a knee injury when he came on as a substitute against Huddersfield on Saturday.

Steve Bruce's side went on to win that game 2-0, their third straight victory, to leave them just three points off Championship pacesetters Cardiff.

Cairney revealed his relief at returning to first-team action in a second-half cameo and conceded the Tigers' recent good form made his reintegration easier.

"There were a few butterflies when the manager told me I was going on because I'd been out for a long time and we were 1-0 up," he told Hull's official website.

"To be back out there was a great feeling, though, and because the team and the players are full of confidence, it makes it a bit easier for me.

"The boys are flying at the moment and it's been a struggle just to get back into the squad.

"With the ability that we've got in the squad, we've definitely got a good chance of doing something this season and the belief is there within the changing room to achieve that."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
