Steve Bruce is confident the reassurances he has received from Hull's owners will give him every chance of guiding the club back to the Barclays Premier League.

Bruce returned to management with the Tigers on Friday just over six months after being sacked by Sunderland. The former Manchester United captain was named as successor to Nicky Barmby, who was dismissed by his hometown club at the end of the season for questioning the owners' ambitions in the media.

Bruce insists there are no doubts about the intentions of Assem and Ehab Allam and he told Sky Sports News: "Let's be clear, the people here are determined to take the club forward. The more I spoke to them, the more assurances I was given and it became clear where they wanted to take the club."
