Hull City boss Phil Brown admits the hard work starts now after winning Premiership promotion.

Brown is taking up the challenge with his eyes wide open and admitted: "We are going into the lion's den as well as the Promised Land.

"I am fully aware of what is coming up next season and I know what the Premier League is capable of throwing at you.

"I may have put my head on the block by getting promoted but this is my opportunity and I am ready to take it.

"It is a ruthless business but this game is all about brave men taking brave decisions - and hopefully that will be the case with Hull next season."
