Hull midfielder Huddlestone backing Spurs for top four

Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone is backing former club Tottenham to finish in the top four.

Huddlestone feels Mauricio Pochettino is the right manager of Spurs.

He told talkSPORT: "Yeah, I don't see any reason why not.

"The manager has his own style of play and the lads seem to be buying into that. I know he got a bit of criticism in the early part of the season but I think the perseverance with the system and the training methods is paying benefits.

"From what the Southampton and Tottenham lads have said, a lot of [his training] is double sessions in the early part of the season and it might take a little while to bed in but they're well and truly over that now. They're reaping the rewards of his training methods and his match-style as well."
