Bruce out to emulate Stoke

Steve Bruce wants Hull to use Stoke's blueprint for their own success in the Barclays Premier League.

The Tigers host the Potters on Sunday with manager Bruce hoping to build on last season's 16th placed finish.

Both sides were promoted to the Premier League in 2008 but the Potters have stayed in England's top tier ever since - reaching Europe after being beaten FA Cup finalists in 2011.

Hull's stay lasted only two seasons but they returned last term and Bruce - who has had two bids for Blackburn's Jordan Rhodes rejected this week - hopes to achieve similar success to that enjoyed at the Britannia Stadium.

"This club went up with Stoke in 2008, and they've been there ever since," he told the Tigers' official website.

"That shows how they've progressed and what they've done in those years. That has to be my aim, to copy something like Stoke.

"They have a nucleus of some very good players. Mark Hughes is changing the way they want to play and they are a good side."

The game comes three days after Hull lost the first leg of their Europa League qualifying play-off tie 1-0 against Lokeren in Belgium.

Bruce is confident the Tigers will shrug off that disappointment and avoid a Europa League hangover that has afflicted many English sides competing in the competition in past campaigns.

He added: "Stoke have had all week to prepare and that is an advantage. We haven't had the chance to do any preparation work. We recovered from Thursday on Friday and we'll do some preparation on Saturday.

"I made nine changes on Thursday night, so hopefully we'll be fresh enough to get the three points that we need."

Goalkeeper Allan McGregor, whose error led to Lokeren's winner on Thursday, is the Tigers' only fitness concern for Sunday's encounter after he picked up a shoulder injury.

"To get back-to-back wins in the Premier League would be great. I don't think we've done that for about a year so it shows how hard it is," said Bruce.

He is expected to make wholesale changes but is without the suspended Yannick Sagbo and Robert Snograss, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a dislocated knee.

They miss out as Marc Wilson insists Stoke must recover from their opening-day defeat to Aston Villa.

The defender admitted the disappointment from the 1-0 home reverse hit the side hard after Andreas Weimann's winner stole the points for the visitors.

Stoke are expected to do well in the top flight this season and Wilson knows they cannot afford a hangover.

"It was a set-back for us, and we are all still hurting from the result," Wilson told Stoke City Player.

"We just weren't able to hit the levels we hit last season (which finished with Stoke in ninth, the club's record-high Premier League final position), both as a team and on a personal level, and that was frustrating.

"We had come through a good pre-season, added a number of new players to the squad and we were really expecting to start the season better than we did.

"For us to have produced the kind of performance that we did was a real kick in the stomach to be honest.

"It's a disappointment we are determined to bounce straight back from however, and we have a real chance of doing that against Hull.

"We know that we need to be better, and we know that we have to learn from the mistakes we made last weekend. We are itching to get those three points on the board."

Stoke are without Stephen Ireland, who suffered a chest injury in training to rule him out for at least two weeks but United States defender Geoff Cameron and Nigeria striker Peter Odemwingie are available after their extended break following the World Cup.

Hughes is confident Robert Huth will be available, despite the defender feeling a slight twinge in his knee while over-stretching.

Victor Moses could make his debut after his season-long loan move from Chelsea with Hughes deciding whether the Nigeria forward will be fit enough after a lack of game time in pre-season.

Dionatan Teixeira, Andy Wilkinson, Ryan Shotton, Wilson Palacios and Brek Shea were also absent last week with Palacios linked with Villa and Derby interested in Shotton.

Stoke City salvage draw vs. Hull

Stoke salvaged a controversial late point against 10-man Hull after captain Ryan Shawcross bundled home from point-blank range seven minutes from time.

The Tigers had James Chester sent off after only 14 minutes but appeared on course to claim an unlikely win after Nikica Jelavic's instinctive finish gave them the lead shortly before half-time.

Indeed, for much of the 76 minutes they played with a man disadvantage they were the better side, outpassing, outchasing and outworking a Potters team that lacked direction.

But they rescued a result, and a first point of the season, when Phil Bardsley's angled shot ricocheted off the inside of the post, against goalkeeper Allan McGregor and was nudged over the line by the waiting Shawcross.

Hull were left to fume with the goal coming from a Stoke throw-in which should have gone the home side's way.

A point was arguably more than Mark Hughes' side deserved for such a listless showing but Hull must surely have feared worse when they were asked to play the majority of the game at a numerical disadvantage.

Hull were eager to assert themselves in the opening minutes, looking to get on the front foot and attempting to target Bardsley at right-back.

Andrew Robertson was the chosen outlet and he began to find his range with a couple of teasing crosses from the left.

Yet despite Hull's positive start, exemplified by the busy Stephen Quinn, Stoke were threatening on the break.

Their first warning came after only three minutes when Peter Odemwingie played in Mame Diouf.

He shook off Chester to leave himself clean through but was judged to have fouled the defender in the process.

Chester was not so lucky next time, when Livermore's underhit back pass invited Glenn Whelan to charge at goal.

All the momentum lay with the Irishman, who was left in a heap by an outstretched leg that had denied a clear scoring chance.

Referee Jonathan Moss did not hesitate to produce the red card, leaving the hosts with a mountain to climb.

The tactical reshuffle was relatively simple, Ahmed Elmohamady and Robertson swapping wing-back to full-back and Tom Ince dropping deeper into midfield.

It was a system Stoke struggled to pick holes in despite their advantage.

Their were half-chances -- an Odemwingie dribble into the area, Erik Pieters' wayward drive -- but the hosts were holding up well.

Hughes responded by sending on summer signing Bojan Krkic four minutes before half-time, with Whelan sacrificed, but he was unimpressive in Hull's opener just seconds later.

Lacking the bite that Whelan would have offered, he allowed Tom Huddlestone to breeze past him before unleashing a low shot that Asmir Begovic could only palm back out.

Jelavic anticipated well, beat Marc Wilson to the ball and hooked home from a tight angle.

It was the least Hull's battling response deserved and it was the hosts who ended the half pressing for a second as Stoke lost all semblance of calm.

Hughes' half-time words seemed to have some effect, with his side much improved after the break.

McGregor was called on twice in as many minutes, saving low from Shawcross following a free-kick routine then diving in front of Diouf to smother a cross.

The respective managers quickly re-drew the battle lines, Hughes sending Peter Crouch on as a second striker and Steve Bruce replacing Ince with another defender in Liam Rosenior.

Stoke had their best chance yet when Bojan's deft pass played in Crouch after 64 minutes but a clumsy touch allowed McShane to make a covering challenge.

The ball looped invitingly for Diouf but his cushioned header landed a yard wide.

Stoke's final substitute, Charlie Adam, was into the game immediately, firing a 25-yarder that McGregor flicked over the crossbar.

The game was gradually building towards Stoke's response but Hull did not seem liable to crack.

It took a wrongly-awarded throw-in and an unusal bounce of the ball to breach them, Bardsley hitting Bojan's cross into the ground and watching it rear up and bounce off the frame of the goal.

McGregor, briefly disorientated, allowed it to come back off him instead of gathering it and Shawcross did just enough -- his effort confirmed by goal-line technology.

There would no winner but Hull, ever game for the fight, ended the game bravely seeking one.
