Steve Bruce: Promotion still up for grabs insists Hull City manager

The Tigers are in second place behind Cardiff and still have a six-point advantage over Watford with three matches remaining despite losing 1-0 at Wolves.

The impact of the defeat, courtesy of a 55th-minute goal from Kevin Doyle, was cushioned by the Hornets' 1-0 reverse at Millwall.

"It would have been nice to have got a result, of course it would, but we'll have to go to the weekend," said Bruce, whose side host already-relegated Bristol City on Friday night.

"I don't think we were ever going to do it easy, it's still all to play for.

"Up until today we were third, I think, over the last 10 games in terms of form so we've managed to hang on in there when the tickly bit starts and it's certainly upon us now.

"Our opponents have found it very, very difficult too. So it's all to play for. We've been helped, there's another game gone and we need four points.

"It can help playing Friday, but obviously it's the recovery - three games in six days again is difficult.

"But yes, it's a wonderful advantage if we can take advantage of it.

"It's in our hands, we can make a giant leap forward if we can go and get a result on Friday."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
