Hull striker Fagan will not taunt Man City fullback Bridge

Hull City striker Craig Fagan will not be verballing Manchester City fullback Wayne Bridge if he plays today.

England left-back Bridge could return to action when Manchester City visit the KC Stadium following a spell out injured, during which allegations surfaced of an affair between his former partner and ex-Chelsea team-mate John Terry.

Should he play on Humberside, Bridge could well be up against Fagan providing the Tigers star keeps his place on the right wing.

Fagan, however, insists he would not dare use the recent off-field headlines to gain a psychological advantage over the defender.

"At the end of the day he's going to be in the spotlight but I'm sure his manager wouldn't put him in if he wasn't 100% right," said Fagan.

"Obviously I don't want to get involved in any of that.

"I wouldn't even dare mention it to the guy to be honest.

"I think that's crossing the line a bit. If he does play then fair play to him."
