Steve Bruce refuses to rule out relegation

Steve Bruce admits that Hull City are still in a battle to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce has admitted that his side are still in a battle to avoid relegation following their defeat against Stoke City.

The Tigers, who lost 1-0 at the Britannia Stadium courtesy of Peter Odemwingie's 62nd-minute winner, are currently seven points above the Premier League relegation zone.

"I think the bottom 10 - until you get that magical points total and are mathematically safe - everybody is still a bit edgy," Bruce is quoted as saying by

"We have got ourselves in a wonderful position. I think a win and a couple of draws will be enough. But we have seen some crazy results, so you never quite know."

Hull are back in action next weekend with a home match against Swansea City.
