Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone would love a long run in the Capital One Cup.

Survival in the Barclays Premier League is the overarching aim of the Tigers' season.

"First and foremost, we have got to try to sustain Premier League status for next season, but if you can have a good cup run as well, it bodes well," said Huddlestone.

"The manager has got a fairly deep squad as well - the last round in the cup, he changed 11 players and they got the right result, so he is fully within his rights to do that again, I guess."
