Hull keeper Harper likens Bruce to Newcastle legend Robson

Hull City goalkeeper Steve Harper has likened manager Steve Bruce to his former Newcastle United boss Sir Bobby Robson.

Harper will play against Bruce's old club Sunderland on Saturday when both can expect stick from the visiting fans due to their Geordie roots.

He said: "There are similarities between the two of them and not just their backgrounds.

"Sir Bobby was a great man-manager and so is Steve. He has that human touch."
