Bruce delighted with Hull’s draw

HULL CITY boss Steve Bruce failed to contain his glee after yesterday’s FA Cup semi-final draw paired his team with Sheffield United of League One.

Goals from Curtis Davies, David Meyler and Matty Fryatt, after Sone Aluko had missed a penalty, saw off Sunderland 3-0 to book a last-four spot for the first time since 1930.

Bruce, whose team have never reached an FA Cup final, said: “It’s a great draw, you want to avoid the big boys. The magic of the FA Cup will never disappear.”
