Ashbee insists Bullard return massive for Hull

Crocked Hull City skipper Ian Ashbee says the return to full fitness of Jimmy Bullard will be massive for the club.

Bullard will play tonight for Hull reserves and Ashbee told the Hull Daily Mail: "Jimmy will make us tick, no question about that.

"When you've got a player of his ability back in the team, he can only be a good addition.

"He says to me every day when we're travelling to training that he feels stronger than he's ever done so it can only be a good thing.

"People will talk about how he's a bubbly character and a joker to have around the place but first and foremost, he's a top quality player.

"The gaffer bought him here because he's a very good player and that's exactly what he is, you don't get picked for England if you're not up there with the best."
