Hull boss Steve Bruce has warned his side to beware a Manchester City backlash as the Tigers head into Saturday's KC Stadium showdown.
Hull City's vice-chairman, Ehab Allam has released an open letter to the club's fans.
Hull manager Steve Bruce believes the club are a "different animal" since the arrival of Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long.
Hull City supporters have been giving their reaction to yesterday's extraordinary events at the KC Stadium which saw the Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew sent to the stands for aiming a headbutt at the Tigers midfielder David Meyler.
The editor of Newcastle United's No9 fanzine, Peter Mann, says the club should move on now that it's fined Alan Pardew for the touchline melee.
Alan Pardew provoked fury yesterday when he headbutted Hull midfielder David Meyler.
The Newcastle boss was fined £100,000 by the club for the incident during his side's 4-1 victory at the KC Stadium.
He has been no stranger to controversy, having had touchline altercations with other managers already this season.
- March 2012 - In the Tyne-Wear derby, Pardew, now Newcastle boss, clashed with Martin O'Neill following his celebration to Shola Ameobi's late equaliser in a heated match. Both managers pledged afterwards to keep their emotions in check in future.
- August 2012 - Pardew came under severe criticism and then afterwards labelled his behaviour "ridiculous" when he shoved linesman Peter Kirkup in the Magpies' season opener against Tottenham. Pardew once again apologised but the FA hit him with a two-match touchline ban and a £20,000 fine.
- January 2014 - Pardew became involved in another touchline row, with Manchester City manager Pellegrini. Television cameras clearly showed the Newcastle boss launching an expletive-laden volley at the Chilean.
On that occasion, Pardew was spared punishment but said later: "It was a heat of the moment thing, words we always have as managers, to a degree. I've apologised and I'm fortunate that he's accepted that."
Newcastle United have issued a statement saying Alan Pardew's touchline actions yesterday were "unacceptable".
The Magpies' boss headbutted Hull City's David Meyler after the midfielder collided with him when trying to retrieve the ball for a throw-in.
The club also says it is "most disappointing" that Alan Pardew's actions will detract attention from their convincing away win against Hull.

Hull City lost 1- 4 to Newcastle United today. But all the headlines will be about an alleged incident involving the Newcastle manager Alan Pardew in which he appeared to aim a headbutt at Hull City midfielder David Mayler.
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has expressed his regret in the wake of the extraordinary flashpoint which overshadowed his team's 4-1 Barclays Premier League win at Hull.
The game's main talking point arrived in the 72nd minute when Hull midfielder David Meyler barged into Pardew as he looked to retrieve the ball for a throw-in.
The Newcastle manager, no stranger to touchline altercations, squared up to the former Sunderland midfielder before appearing to move his head in the direction of the Irishman.
Referee Kevin Friend certainly viewed it as a serious incident and sent Pardew to the stands, with the FA sure to take a close look at the altercation in the coming days.
Pardew told Sky Sports News afterwards: "It was a heat of the moment thing - I massively regret it."
"I didn't meant to do anything aggressive but I moved my head forward and that's enough."It's a shame because it took the gloss off a fantastic performance from us. That's really upsetting."
