image for Hull City To Be Top On Saturday Night?
In hotel terms, City are in the Penthouse!

Premiership newboys Hull City are preparing themselves and their fans for the greatest triumph in the team's 104-year history on Saturday, when it's entirely possible the Tigers will be sitting atop the Premier League!

City have started off well, with a 2-1 defeat of Fulham on the opening day, and a gritty 1-1 draw at Blackburn on Saturday leaving them in the fourth Champions League spot on 4 points.

With Liverpool and Chelsea not playing until Sunday, a Hull win against pointless Wigan Athletic could see them leapfrog over Paul Ince's Blackburn to sit proudly on top of the league 100% of bookmakers said they would be relegated from.

Hull boss Phil Brown is not getting carried away with his side's early success though. He said:

"Aye, the's a long wayda go yet. We'll take it one game at a tyme. It's a marathon not a sprint. Game of two halves. And any other cliches you want to add!"

One concern for Hull is Brown's previously-unknown health condition. Asked about it by the BBC's Harry Gration, the cheerful Geordie laughed:

"Oh, aye. It's nuthin'. Just a bit of vertigo!"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
