Vic­tory will make Bruce’s mask slip

The Herald - Herald Sport - - FA CUP SEMI-FINALS -

SH­EFFIELD UNITED v HULL CITY Steve Bruce is pre­pared to go a bit daft in cel­e­bra­tion if his Hull City team book a place in the FA Cup fi­nal by beat­ing the side which gave him his first chance in man­age­ment.

Fif­teen years have passed since Bruce was handed the reins at Sh­effield United, with Hull his eighth man­age­rial post at just 53.

“I was a lit­tle bit head­strong and when you’re younger, you want to take on the world,” he sighed.

It did not work out, but it did for Bruce in the long run. He will walk out at Wem­b­ley and see him­self star­ing back. Hull fans have taken to wear­ing masks of his face of late. “Oh dear, that’s all I need,” he said. “I’m go­ing to take it all in good hu­mour, I just hope the kids aren’t fright­ened by these masks.”
