Gary Alexander: We're not giving up on promotion
Alexander said: "I never wanted to leave Hull City, and now Peter has come in hopefully I can catch his eye and be part of his plans for the rest of the season."

Meanwhile, the 23-year-old has backed the decision to bring in Taylor in place of Jan Molby, and thinks that the new boss can bring success to the club.

He said: "At the end of the day the fact Jan's gone has been down to results. We've not been performing and the chairman has realised it's time for a change.
"I've never worked with him [Taylor] before and it will be good to work with a man of his experience. He did brilliantly with the England Under-21s and at clubs like Gillingham and Leicester, and he can only improve us as a team.
"We are still not giving up on promotion. We are only 12 games in and there are more than 100 points to play for, and the type of coach he is should bring the best out of us."
