Hull City manager Steve Bruce has been fined £10,000 for misconduct.

He was charged for criticising referee Martin Oliver for awarding a controversial penalty to visitors Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs won the game 1-0 after Roberto Soldado converted the penalty.

Bruce to face FA charges over "joke" penalty

Hull City boss, Steve Bruce, is facing a Football Association charge over comments he made about Tottenham's decisive penalty in their 1-0 defeat on Sunday.

After the game, Bruce called referee Michael Oliver's decision to award a penalty in the 80th minute "a joke".

Bruce felt the decision to give the handball against Ahmed Elmohamady was harsh, and made his feelings know post-match, despite knowing the comments could land him in hot water with the FA.

Hull returned to White Hart Lane in the Capital One Cup, where a 2-2 draw ended in another defeat for the TIgers, with penalties proving to be their nemesis again, missing out 8-7.

The Tigers host Bruce's former club Sunderland at the KC Stadium on Sunday.

Hull are again operating at reduced capacity for their Capital One Cup fourth-round clash meeting Tottenham, their second visit to White Hart Lane in four days.

Allan McGregor (thigh), Danny Graham (knee), James Chester (hamstring) and Sone Aluko (calf) remain out, Jake Livermore cannot play against his parent club and Robert Koren and Robbie Brady are unlikely to be risked from the start.

Curtis Davies and Tom Huddlestone, a former Spurs player, may also be confined to the bench as Steve Bruce looks to preserve them for league duty.

The 25-year-old Sunderland midfielder, who spent last season on loan at the KC Stadium, is high on Steve Bruce's wanted list after yesterday's capture of George Boyd.
