Dowie has Tigers up for crucial clash

Iain Dowie has told his Hull players to take the positives from last week's Portsmouth heartbreak into today's crunch clash against Fulham.

Dowie looked set for a dream start to life as Tigers boss when they led 2-1 going into the final couple of minutes at Fratton Park, only to lose 3-2.

They return to the KC Stadium tooking to end a run of five successive defeats but, at the end of his first week in charge, former Northern Ireland star Dowie insists it is far from all doom and gloom.

“The response has been good, there's a focus about them,” he said.

“Sometimes in your darkest moments, you find something within yourself. That's the time when inspiration comes to you.”
