Steve Bruce: Hull's survival mission is far from complete despite Liverpool triumph.



Hull boss Steve Bruce warned his side not to get carried away despite a 1-0 win over Liverpool which moved them to the brink of Barclays Premier League safety.

Michael Dawson's 36th-minute header sent the Tigers four points clear of the relegation zone with four games remaining - three of which are back at the KC Stadium.

But despite a second straight win which looks to have turned his side's season around, Bruce made it clear the survival mission is far from completed.

Bruce said: 'You can't bring them down and I didn't want to but we will certainly remind them tomorrow that it's not job done.


'We've got to make sure that resilience which we've found stays with us for the next four games because 34 points is not usually enough.

'Make no mistake - we're in a better position than we were four days ago and we're rightly pleased but now we've got to concentrate on Arsenal who are coming up on Monday night.'

Despite many tipping the Tigers for the drop after a run of six games without a win dumped them in the bottom three, Bruce maintained he never doubted his side could claw their way towards safety.

He added: 'I never really doubted the character of the players. We've had a lot to put up with this year with injuries and conceding in the last minute, but we are desperate to stay in the Premier League and we have shown that in our last couple of performances.'
