The Tigers were forced to train on the pitch of the KC Stadium ahead of this weekend’s clash with Newcastle United as Steve Bruce branded the situation, “ridiculous.”
Quoted in the Daily Mail he said, “We’ve spent a fortune on under-soil heating, new pitches and all the rest of it.”
He continued, “But we’ve got no fuel to it and the gas board has left a lot to be desired. We spent fortunes for this kind of situation and, if we hadn’t gone away (to Portugal), we’d have had nowhere to train.
“The training ground this morning (Friday) was unplayable, so we’ve had to come and use the stadium, which for a Premier League club is ridiculous.
“We did everything we could in the summer to eradicate that with the training ground. We spent a lot of money on it, but we’ve got no gas supply to it. It seems ludicrous.”
