HULL boss Steve Bruce ad­mits it’s tough go­ing to find a striker who can save his job.

Last Jan­uary, Bruce pulled off a dou­ble mas­ter­stroke in sign­ing Shane Long and Ni­kica Jelavic.

But Long was then flogged to Southamp­ton at the end of Au­gust and Jelavic is crocked.

Bruce is des­per­ate to bring in a new front­man be­fore the win­dow shuts, with the Tigers stuck in the drop zone.

But with lit­tle cash to spend, he is cur­rently fight­ing a los­ing bat­tle.

Bruce – who was priced out of a move for Jer­main De­foe – ad­mit­ted: “The frus­tra­tion is that it’s dif­fi­cult be­cause where are they?

“Where are the cen­tre­for­wards for limited money or on loan?

“Hope­fully we will dis­cover some­thing.”
