Hull City manager Steve Bruce has told his side to forget about their FA Cup quarter-final triumph and focus on Premier League survival, according to Sky Sports.

Bruce’s side secure a 3-0 FA Cup quarter-final win over Sunderland on Sunday and his side can now look forward to a Wembley semi-final for the first time in 84 years.

Despite the victory, the Tigers boss has insisted that his side must focus on their Premier League survival as his side currently sit just five points above the relegation zone.

"I still think we've got to win a couple more games," said Bruce.

"We're a newly promoted club and we've made huge strides very quickly but there is still work to do and it carries on.

"We have to get ready to play Manchester City at home. But that's the Premier League - we have to address that and make sure we stay here and get better and better."

Hull put in an excellent performance in their 3-0 win in which they scored all three goals within 10 minutes to secure the semi-final trip against Sheffield United for the club.

Meanwhile in the other quarter final, cup holders Wigan dumped out Manchester City in a repeat of last year’s final and although a heavy weight is now out of the competition, an Arsenal-City semi-final could have secured Hull European football next season.

Despite his boss’ urge for Premier League focus, Hull midfielder Tom Huddlestone has spoken of his desire to play at Wembley.

"I remember watching Wembley finals when I was younger. It would be a dream come true to play in one,” said Huddlestone.

"When you're younger and you're watching those games, you never really feel that you're going to emulate those players but we've got a great chance to do that."
