Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet knows exactly what Hull counterpart Steve Bruce is going through as the Tigers boss attempts to drag his club out of an alarming slump.

The two men will go head to head at the Stadium of Light on Boxing Day, but will do so having experienced markedly different emotions in recent weeks with Poyet still basking in the glory of Sunday's derby victory at Newcastle and Bruce by contrast presiding over a team which last collected three Barclays Premier League points on October...

There are circumstances to explain what, at first, seemed a strange statistic. Luis Suarez, Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez spent only part of the calendar year in England. Daniel Sturridge and Sergio Aguero missed significant parts of it because...

Steve Bruce says Hull's away form could be pivotal to their survival hopes as they prepare to face Sunderland in the Premier League.
