Hull City boss Phil Brown today delivered a defiant statement, refuting rumours that he is set to be sacked by the Premier League strugglers, insisting his players are a 'million per cent' behind him.

Brown also revealed that former chairman Paul Duffen decided to quit the KC Stadium due to business reasons and that his departure had no impact on his own position.

He said: 'I spoke for a long time with Paul Duffen and (owner) Russell Bartlett over the past couple of days and the replacement chairman will be announced after Saturday's game.
