Hull boss Brown standing firm as pressure mounts

Phil Brown remains defiant over his future as Hull City boss and claims there is no extra pressure on him to win this weekend. The Tigers boss is under heavy scrutiny to come out with three points at home to Stoke City, but he has brushed off speculation that he will be out of a job should the Potters walk away with the three points.

"I am not tired of hearing it - I am not aware of it. It is as simple as that," Brown said.

"People are saying it's a must-win game but it's not a must-win game at all.

"As far as I am concerned, putting a performance in similar to the Burnley game will be sufficient to get the home crowd going.

"If we get that performance the results will follow. It is about putting our best foot forward in the first 5-10 minutes to get the crowd behind us."
