Hull No2 Horton: Fans excited about Premiership fixtures

Hull City assistant boss Brian Horton says there's plenty for the club to be excited about after the Premiership fixtures were released yesterday.

The Tigers will kick off their first ever season of top flight football with a home clash against Fulham and will round things off with a visit from Manchester United on 24th May.

"Fulham did fantastically well to stay up last season," Horton told hullcityafc.net. "It will be a good game for us. They have got some very good players and I'm sure they'll be recruiting like everybody else.

"You look at the start to the season and we've also got Blackburn away, Wigan who we played last season, Newcastle - it's all mouth-watering stuff.

"Then you look further down and see the likes of Arsenal and the rest. It's just really exciting.

"And then you see Manchester United at home on the final day. Beating them to get into Europe - that would be nice wouldn't it?

"But seriously, I think all of the fans were waiting for ten o'clock this morning. It was on all of the local radio stations and it's just tremendous."

Horton admits that seeing the fixture list adds to the anticipation ahead of the new season.

"To be honest, it only seems like a few hours since we were playing at Wembley. The thoughts of that day are still fresh in the mind.

"But once you see who we're going to be playing week in, week out it really gets you going."
