Brown confirmed as permanent Tigers boss

Phil Brown has earned the right to save Hull City from relegation according to chairman Adam Pearson.

Brown, who was made caretaker manager following Phil Parkinson's departure, has steered the Tigers to wins over promotion hopefuls Cardiff, Burnley and Sheffield Wednesday.

The upturn in form has persuaded Pearson to give Brown, who had an unsuccessful spell as manager of Derby, the chance to secure Hull's Championship survival.

'Phil is a character and the players have responded to him so he deserved his chance after recent results,' said Pearson. 'We have agreed a deal to the end of the season and we'll review things then. I think he had a point to prove after what happened at Derby.

'I think we are now playing a more positive style of football. It has been more attacking under Phil but this is just the start. It's early days and we need to carry on recent performances.'

Pearson confirmed Brown will only have a small budget to work with in January as the club look to swell the coffers with a good result against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup this weekend.

He said: 'There's not a lot of money there to spend in the transfer window but perhaps the current team deserve their chance to prove what they can do under Phil.

'We're looking forward to hosting Middlesbrough in the FA Cup this Saturday with Phil in charge and maybe we can cause an upset.'

Brown was assistant to Parkinson until the former Colchester boss was sacked by Hull in early December when he took temporary charge of the Tigers.

He spent the majority of his playing career at Bolton and moved into the coaching set-up at the club where he became assistant manager to Colin Todd and then Sam Allardyce with a spell as caretaker-manager between the two reigns.

Brown succeeded George Burley as Derby manager in June 2005 but was sacked by the Rams in January 2006.

Now the 47-year-old has been handed a chance to rebuild his managerial career.

Brown admitted he has relished his spell in charge of the team since the sacking of Parkinson.

He recently said: 'I'm enjoying my time here and enjoying the way the players have responded to me as a coach and as a manager.

'It's a great football club and a great opportunity for me to get my career back on track and the players also deserve a lot of credit for (helping with) that.'
