Bruce hopes Dame N’Doye can fire Hull to Premier League safety

first_imgSteve Bruce hopes deadline-day recruit Dame N’Doye can hit a trademark hot streak to guide Hull to safety after his match-winning brace at Crystal Palace.Senegal striker N’Doye wasted a number of chances before plundering a second-half double that cemented a vital 2-0 win at Selhurst Park on Saturday.The 30-year-old now boasts five goals in ten Hull appearances since his £2million January move from Lokomotiv Moscow, and boss Bruce hopes he can now fire Hull to top-flight safety.“He usually scores in batches, so he usually gets three or four goals in as many weeks, so let’s hope that happens again now,” said Bruce.“This will give him the confidence that every striker needs.“He’s done terrific since he’s walked through the door in January.“Jelavic has only played 50 per cent of the games through his knee injury.“You’re only as good as what you put up front.“Every team is well-drilled, well-organised, so you’ve got to take the chances when they come.”Hull still face Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United, with the clash against Burnley the only stand out fixture for the Tigers, in a daunting five-game run-in.last_img read more
