Hull manager Steve Bruce credits his team for their character and determination after they survive the weather to overcome Burnley at Turf Moor.

Steve Bruce has praised the character of his Hull City players after they survived the freezing conditions to beat Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor tonight.

A Stephen Quinn strike in the second half was enough for the Tigers to overcome their out-of-form opponents and climb back to second in the Championship.

"We wanted to make sure there was a determination about us not to concede. It was never going to be pretty on the type of night," Bruce told Sky Sports News.

"It was a horrible, hard evening but if you're going to be successful and win leagues then you've got to sometimes come to places like this on a horrible night and get something. That's what we've done."

Hull face Nottingham Forest, who have won their last five matches, when they return to action next Saturday.
