Bruce will select strong Hull line-up for Cup tie

Hull City boss Steve Bruce will pick a strong team for tonight's FA Cup tie at Brighton.

Bruce has so far used the to rest his first-choice XI as he puts Premier League survival first.

Being two matches from a Wembley semi-final means his team tonight is likely to be closer to full-strength, with the exception of Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic who are cup-tied.

Bruce said: "I always picked a team that I thought could go and win the games we've had.

"I'm not going to deny that the Premier League is of vital importance to us."
