Steve Bruce is calling on football bosses to curb rising ticket prices in the Premier League.

The Hull City manager admits he feels sorry for supporters who have to fork out large sums of money to see their team play every week, especially fans of the so-called ‘bigger clubs’ in the division.

His side’s clash against Liverpool at the KC Stadium is the subject of a boycott by visiting fans’ group Spirit of Shankly. Supporters of the Merseyside club are unhappy with the £50 ticket price for the match.

Bruce backs the group’s right to boycott, echoing the sentiment of his Liverpool counterpart Brendan Rodgers.

The 54-year-old says it is important to give something back to the fans, describing them as the lifeblood of football. He wants Premier League officials to set rules that limit the maximum price clubs can charge for tickets.

Hull currently sit one point above the relegation zone, after a vital win on the road at Crystal Palace on Saturday. Bruce was pleased with the way his players rose to the occasion and hopes they can repeat the trick against Liverpool.
