Hull boss Bruce delighted with crucial Swansea win

Hull City boss Steve Bruce was delighted with their 1-0 win over Swansea City.

Hull City boss Steve Bruce was delighted with their 1-0 win over Swansea City.

George Boyd's first-half header was enough to settle a bitty contest and, more significantly, realise Bruce's target of 10 wins for the season.

"I've said all along that we need 10 wins," Bruce said.

"We've gone a long way towards being safe, but it is ridiculous - all of a sudden that result for Fulham and West Brom winning at Norwich has concertinaed the whole thing again.

"When you look at Fulham's three home games they'll be thinking they've still got a squeak. It's still all to play for."

Bruce was particularly pleased for match-winner Boyd, who played his first game since his ban for spitting at Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

It is a charge Bruce labelled "ridiculous", although he joked Boyd had earned some luck back after a rare header for the winner.

"For Boydy in particular I'm delighted," he said.

"It was a ridiculous decision by the FA to ban him. But, no disrespect to Boydy, you know it's your day if he scores with a header."
