Hull City boss Steve Bruce wants his team to secure Premier League safety this weekend with a win over Fulham, reports the Hull
A victory at Craven Cottage tomorrow afternoon and defeat for Norwich City at Manchester United will mean that Hull will secure a place in the top flight for another season.
Having already beaten Fulham in the reverse fixture at the end of last year, Bruce believes victory over the Cottagers would be a ‘fitting finale’ to their campaign.
He said: “We need to go there and get a result. It’s a big game for everyone. We know what we have to do.
“The players have worked incredibly hard this season to come this far and just need to get over the line. We’ve not been lower than 14th all season and that’s a reflection of how well we’ve done as a newly-promoted team.
“They’ve been a terrific bunch of lads and a pleasure to work with. All it needs now is one more result and we want that to come at Fulham.”
The last meeting between the teams saw a 6-0 thumping of Fulham at the KC Stadium last December.
But with Hull looking to tie up safety, a win for Fulham will see them move out of the relegation zone depending on other results elsewhere.
