Meyler hoping to kick-start career at Hull

IRELAND man David Meyler hopes that Steve Bruce can kick-start his career following his loan move to Hull City.

The Cork native moved from Sunderland to Hull last week on a two-month loan deal and made his debut as a sub in Saturday's Championship defeat to Cardiff City.

Meyler previously worked under Bruce at Sunderland and, after a frustrating time at the Stadium of Light this season, is eager to get going again.

"I've come here to play as many games as I can in two months and to win every single one of them if I can," said Meyler, who is in Dublin with the Irish squad for Wednesday's friendly against Greece.

"That's the plan, to get this team as far up the league as I can during my time here.

"Steve Bruce is very honest. He knows what he wants from players and he gets the best out of them.

"You look at what a player he was and what a career he had, and he's brought that into management.


"He's great to learn from and I played some of my best football under him at Sunderland until I got injured.

"We agreed that it was best for me to go out.

"It's a move I'm really looking forward to getting stuck into," added Meyler, who admitted his disappointment after that debut defeat with Hull on Saturday.

"We can't be feeling sorry for ourselves, we've got to move on and look forward to Birmingham away and getting three points," he said.

"To lose 2-1 is not really good enough for us, we want to be winning these games if we want to push up to the Premier League."
