Hull's hopes of automatic promotion suffered a minor setback following a frustrating goalless draw with bottom club Bristol City at the KC Stadium.

The point increased the Tigers' lead over Watford to seven and a win for struggling Blackburn at Vicarage Road will see Steve Bruce's men promoted.

However, although Rovers have won their last two, it is likely the East Yorkshire club will need a positive result at Barnsley on Saturday or against leaders Cardiff on the final day of the season to see them secure a top-two place.

Hull have often been accused of failing to kill off teams in the npower Championship this season, but in truth relegated Bristol City were rarely threatened by what was a flat performance from Bruce's men.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
