Brown given Tigers chance

06 Dec 2006 - 18:04:39

Hull City caretaker-manager Phil Brown has been challenged to prove he deserves the job on a full-time basis by Tigers chairman Adam Pearson.

Brown, the former Derby County boss and Bolton number two, was handed the reins of the Championship strugglers earlier in the week following the dismissal of Phil Parkinson.

"We will continue with the recruitment process after this appointment," Pearson told the Hull Daily Mail after confirming Brown as the club's interim boss.

"But if the caretaker is able to do very well in the upcoming games, of course, he will be in the driving seat to take the job on full-time.

"Everyone is talking about 53, 54, 55 points to stay in the division and we've got to focus all our energies on survival.

"Make no mistake, it is a survival battle and if the players have got that mentality and they take it onto the field of play, then hopefully the club will stay in this division."
