Hull boss Brown welcomes Newcastle Cup draw

Hull City boss Phil Brown is delighted to have drawn Newcastle United in the Third Round of the FA Cup.

Sunderland fan Brown said: "We wanted a home draw - you always do in the FA Cup, no matter which round it is - and I was happy when Hull City came out of the hat first.

"And then all of a sudden a Premier League club, a big scalp, comes out as well.

"I still class Newcastle United as a top-six team in the Premier League. Although they're not there at the moment, I am convinced Joe Kinnear will get it right, and they will end up in the top half of the league.

"But it's funny because the boot's on the other foot. Hull City are a big scalp now.

"We're a top six side at the moment and, for me, it's going to be an interesting tie, and it's certainly one I'm looking forward to.

"However, it will be interesting to see how Joe approaches it.

"I'll still be using the full squad, there's no doubt about it, but it's a one-off and I will be going into it expecting to win it."
