Adkins warns against complacency

Hull City manager Nigel Adkins has demanded that his players do not get carried away by their excellent recent run.

The Tigers, who host Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, have won their last five Championship matches and have moved up to 13th in the table.

Hull are 11/10 to beat the Owls and 15/2 to win the match 2-1.

Adkins is expecting a tough Yorkshire derby against Wednesday who have appointed Steve Bruce as their next manager.

The South Yorkshire side are 16th in the table and 25/1 to be relegated this term.

"It will be a tough game and they have a squad of really good players with quite a strong attacking force," said Adkins.

"There has been a change of manager there and Steve Bruce will come in next month, but his coaching staff are already in there so the methods of how they want to go and perform are being put in place.

"They're on a good run of form themselves and they've brought a few players back into it, Keiren Westwood for example who had been left out in the cold a little bit.

"There's a spirit about them as well, so we know it's going to be challenging. We've been on a good run of form but we can't have any complacency kicking in."
