Under pressure Hull boss Phil Brown is planning for the long term with the Tigers. He insists he is planning for the future with new chairman Adam Pearson.
He told Sky Sports: "It's quite simple - the chairman came to join us last night in the hotel and we sat down again, chewed the fat about the future.
"We are talking long term, we're not talking about one game, we're not talking about two games.
"We're talking about the long-term survival campaign obviously and the long term future of this football club."
Asked if he was pleased about what he heard from the chairman, he replied: "Absolutely.
"I have heard nothing but positives from Adam Pearson.
"We've worked with each other before - hopefully it will be a long and fruitful relationship."
