Steve Bruce has played down the spat that marred the aftermath of Hull’s 2-0 victory over Huddersfield Town in December at the KC stadium.

The Hull boss was furious at his son Alex’s dismissal after the final whistle following a clash with Irish Striker Alan Lee. Bruce junior was handed a red-card for a shove on Alan Lee, who was handed a retrospective red card for his involvement in the clash that the referee had missed, this provoked a melee between players from both sides.

Steve Bruce alleged after the match that Alan Lee had thrown an elbow at his son Alex, and had made a meal of the retaliation from the Tigers defender.

Bruce, no infamously, then went on a rant about how he used to play guitar with Alan Lee, but that wouldn’t be happening no more, and definitely no Guinness drinking would be taking place!

However ahead of his first managerial return to Town, since his sacking in October 2000, Bruce said “What happens in a football match is soon put in the past. It`s certainly been forgotten about by me and Alex will be fine.”

Bruce’s Tigers are hunting Automatic Promoton from this seasons Championship and currently occupy second place ahead of the Sky TV clash at the John Smiths Stadium, after results on Good Friday wen their way.

Both sides will have eyes on the 3 points for very differing reasons.
