TIGERS MUST BE GUNNING FOR TITLE
HULL CITY have a confirmed date for their FA Cup replay with Arsenal, but full-back Andy Robertson has implored his team-mates not to lose sight of their Championship title tilt.
The Tigers will host Arsenal on Tuesday, March 8 – another repeat of the 2014 final – after holding them to a goalless draw at the Emirates Stadium last weekend.
However, Steve Bruce’s side also have the small matter of a promotion race and Robertson is desperate not to lose sight of it.
“We want a Championship medal,” said the 21-year-old. “Five or six teams are thinking that the side that doesn’t crack will go on to win it.
“It is a time to hold your nerve. There will be ups and downs.We have 14 games and will we get beat in that time? Most likely.
“The key, if we do lose, is we don’t panic.We feel good. The Burnley game was disappointing to lose but we bounced back. The run-in is exciting and we have a few big games ahead.”
