Hull City boss Steve Bruce is adamant his side "mustn't panic" after falling out of the automatic promotion places in the Championship.

Hull City boss Steve Bruce has insisted that his side must not "panic" following their 4-2 defeat to Crystal Palace.

A hat-trick from Kevin Phillips and a Wilfried Zaha strike was enough to seal the points for Ian Holloway's side, who were awarded two penalties on the night.

Bruce told the club's official website: "There'll be plenty of twists and turns throughout these next 10 games, let's not panic.

"The penalty decision didn't help us, but Crystal Palace were the better team here tonight."

Hull are now third in the Championship following the defeat to Palace and are one point behind second-placed Watford in the race for promotion.
