Hull City fullback Andy Dawson is full of praise for Portsmouth boss Paul Hart.

Left-back Dawson knows what to expect from one of Hart's teams having worked under the former Nottingham Forest manager at the City Ground.

The 30-year-old began his career as a trainee at Forest before moving on to Scunthorpe and then rising through the divisions with Hull.

Dawson, fit again after leaving the field with a thigh injury at Wigan, said: "They have got a good manager in Paul Hart. I know him personally from when I was a young lad and he is a good motivator.

"He was Under-19 manager and I was with him for two years. He is a fantastic coach and fantastic manager, and over his career he has proved that."
