Hull boss Brown called in favours to earn Spurs point

Hull City boss Phil Brown has revealed how he called on the experience of fellow managers to earn a point at Tottenham.

In the current campaign Spurs have lost to Wolves and Stoke on their own turf, with the defeat against Mick McCarthy's side last month giving them the most home defeats among teams in the top half of the Barclays Premier League.

"I spoke long and hard to people who had frustrated them," Brown said. "Tony Pulis and Peter Reid spring to mind, at Stoke City. Obviously Mick McCarthy at Wolves.

"They've come here, they've frustrated the home crowd. You can get on the backs of the players and it puts the home side under pressure and consequently those two sides nicked 1-0 wins and rightly so."
