BOYD INSPIRES HULL

The former Peterborough United striker George Boyd has been inspirational Hull City team in the last two matches, as he has managed to score two goals and help the team move into the top two positions of the Championship. His recent performance against Birmingham City got a lot of praise from the manager Steve Bruce.

The 27-year-old was one of the key reasons for Hull City managing a 5-2 win over Birmingham during the weekend. This helped the move just five points within the leaders Cardiff City in the table, while they look odds-on favourites to finish in the automatic promotion places by the end of the season.

Bruce has praised George Boyd by saying that he had not seen a better home debut by a player until now. Even though there are various factors within football like tactics, systems, and formations, all go out of the window due to a special talent such as Boyd. Bruce has also placed his ability to play alongside any player due to his cleverness. Hull City have suffered just one defeat in the last five matches. As a result, they have a two-point advantage over Watford, who are in the third position. Bruce took in charge of the club only this season, and he is aiming for a return to the top flight.

"If there has been a better home debut, I haven't seen one for a long time. He was terrific from first to the last. He's a good player. You can talk about tactics, formations and systems but this kid oozes ability. He can play with anybody. He's a clever footballer. He's made the difference today at an important time," said Steve Bruce. The next few matches will be extremely tough for his club, as they will be playing the likes of Crystal Palace and Watford in the space of a month.
