Captain's Blog - Poppy pride

Our game at Hull City this weekend will see us wearing special shirts with poppies on as part of our support for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Both myself and the Hull City captain will be walking our teams out on to the pitch with a wreath from each side to show a mark of respect before Remembrance Sunday.

It is important we support such causes and initiatives like this. We should not only remember those who fought in wars gone by but also think of those men and women who are currently on active duty around the world.

It also helps raise money to enable the legion to do what they can for the families of these soldiers who put their lives on the line for all of us.

For myself and all the lads, we are very proud to be wearing poppies on our shirts and I am sure you, our fans, and those of Hull City, will also be wearing their poppies with pride.

Back to the pitch, we will be looking to get three points on Saturday after the frustration we had against Bristol City on Tuesday. It will be another hard fought match in which we will have to roll up our sleeves and get stuck in if we want to boss the game and get the right result.

We will be doing our best to achieve that. It goes without saying that the noise you make at away matches is fantastic and once again, we will need that support behind us as we look to build on the four points gained in the last two home matches.

Let's hope we can also follow up the great win we had at Brighton in our last match on the road.

Thanks for your support.
