Ex-boss Taylor tips Tigers to win

Taylor is confident the Tigers can reach the Premiership

Ex-Hull boss Peter Taylor is backing the club to win Saturday's Championship play-off final against Bristol City.

Taylor guided the Tigers from the Football League's bottom division to back-to-back promotions before leaving to join Crystal Palace in 2006.

He told BBC Look North: "I think with the players Hull City have got like Fraizer Campbell, Ian Ashbee and Nick Barmby, they'll go and win the match."

"I keep my fingers crossed that the club go and do just that."

Taylor, who managed England for one match, also urged the club to stay focused.

"I think sometimes you go to Wembley and think about the suits, the occasion, the live match and you've got to go and win the game."
