Newcastle legend Shearer impressed by Hull's new-look attack

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer is impressed by Hull City's new strike-pairing.

Both Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic were on the scoresheet in their thumping win at Cardiff City.

"The best partnerships that I've played in - Ferdinand and (Teddy) Sheringham and Sutton - I didn't have to work at it, it just happened," Shearer said.

"Looking at those two, it's exactly the same that's happened.

"They've played a few games together and scored five goals between them, and it's working."
