Freedman On Hull, Bruce Confirms Midfielder Start

Hull City are the visitors for the final game before the international break and both sides go into the fixture in solid, if unspectacular form.

Speaking to the official NFFC website this week, Freedman outlined the challenge that the visitors and their experienced manager Steve Bruce will pose.

The Scot paid particular attention to the quality of midfield players in the Tigers ranks and Bruce has confirmed in his pre-match press conference that Jake Livermore will make his first league start of the season.

The 25-year-old was suspended by both his club and the FA in May after testing positive for cocaine but he received no ban after the mitigating circumstances of the death of his young son were taken into account.
