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.”
