Dowie confident of getting Hull job permanently

Iain Dowie has started making long-term plans at Hull after impressing chairman Adam Pearson during his 12 days in charge, reports the Daily Mirror. Dowie was appointed temporary football management consultant until the end of the season with the brief to keep the Tigers up.

He could pull off a great escape act with Hull after collecting his first three points with Saturday's win over Fulham to lift them level with 17th-placed West Ham.

It is understood Dowie has outlined his plans for the team's pre-season preparations to Pearson, who is pleased with the job the former Charlton, Coventry and Crystal Palace boss is doing.

In another sign of Dowie's forward thinking, he is also looking to bring more staff to the KC Stadium to add to his backroom team of Steve Wigley and Tim Flowers.
