Bruce eyeing revenge on Saints

Defender Alex Bruce is desperate for Hull to get their own back on Southampton.

The Saints did the double over the Tigers last season, easing to a 4-1 victory on home turf having already taken a 1-0 win at the KC Stadium.

They were a bit of a bogey team for us last year.

They played very well here and at St Mary's. Hopefully we can put that right with a win.

We have to approach it in the right way because we owe them one as it stands.

They've hit the ground running this season but hopefully we can stop them in their tracks.

Ince heads to Forest

Nottingham Forest have completed the loan signing of Hull midfielder Tom Ince.

Reds boss Stuart Pearce has been in talks with the Barclays Premier League club for several days and on Thursday morning an agreement was reached for the 22-year-old winger to move to the City Ground on a deal until December 28.

Pearce is keen to breathe new life into his side's promotion push, following a seven-match winless run in the Sky Bet Championship, and Ince will go straight into the Forest squad for Saturday's trip to Huddersfield.

Hull will assess Mohamed Diame following a long journey back from international duty before their trip to Arsenal this weekend.

The Senegal midfielder played in Tunisia on Wednesday night and will meet up with his team-mates in London before a decision is made on his availability.

Sone Aluko also had a quick turnaround from Nigeria, but manager Steve Bruce has no new knocks to add to Robert Snodgrass (knee) and Allan McGregor (shoulder).

Provisional Hull squad: Harper, Jakupovic, Davies, Dawson, Rosenior, Robertson, Chester, McShane, Elmohamady, Meyler, Diame, Huddlestone, Livermore, Brady, Ramirez, Jelavic, Aluko, Quinn, Hernandez, Ben Arfa.
