Hull boss Steve Bruce has called for Barclays Premier League officials to act to curb rising ticket prices ahead of his side's KC Stadium clash with Liverpool on Tuesday.

Visiting fans' group Spirit of Shankly is organising a boycott of the game in protest at the £50 admission charge, and Bruce echoed his Liverpool counterpart Brendan Rodgers in backing its right to do so.

Bruce said: "I feel sorry for the supporters of big clubs who have to dig deep every week and I hope when the new TV money comes into play the Premier League can remember football does belong to supporters.

"I know how difficult it is for people here at our club to find the money to bring their two kids to a football match and we have to make sure with all the money washing around we give something back to the fans.

"We have to remember the average man in the street because they are the lifeblood of football and I think if the Premier League set certain rules we would all have to abide by them."

Hull midfielder David Meyler says he is totally convinced the Tigers will hang on to their Premier League status.

Steve Bruce's side are in 15th place, three points off the relegation zone, but have a tough run-in with five of their last eight matches against clubs in the top seven of the Premier League.

Speaking ahead of the weekend meeting with Swansea, Meyler said: "We are not going down. We just have to get into the mentality that it is not good enough to accept the 3-2 defeat to Chelsea, even if they are likely Premier League champions.

"We had some great chances and we need to win these games when you get into those positions."

He added: "We're down to the last eight games now and this is where we have to earn our money.

"This is the period when everything will be decided so we've got eight games to make sure we finish as well as we can and that is what we aim to do.

"We finished 17th last season and at the moment, we're 15th this season so we're a little bit ahead."
