Our priority is the league: Tom Huddlestone
Tom Huddlestone accepts the romance of an FA Cup run may have to take a back seat to Hull's league ambitions.
The Tigers appear to be sitting pretty in the Barclays Premier League, lying 10th, but the congested nature of the table means they still sit just six points above the bottom three.
Having diagnosed a case of festive fixture fatigue after the 2-0 defeat at Liverpool, Bruce looks to preserve key players by shuffling the pack during today's FA Cup third round clash at Middlesbrough.
Huddlestone, who has been ever-present in the Tigers midfield this season said: "This season is about us staying in the league."
