Bruce hails Hull striking duo

Hull manager Steve Bruce believes the club are a "different animal" since the arrival of Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long.

I'd love to say it's all in the training but they're two very good players playing together.

There's a lot said about coaching but a good player is a good player and in management the more of them you've got the easier it becomes.

They came in at just the right time and all of a sudden we're a different animal up front.

That's no disrespect to what we had before but at the end of the day they're two £6m players and you'd expect that. We're delighted we've got them and I think they're a terrific partnership.

That's what you invest in, they give you that little something you'd didn't have before.
