BBC pundit Trevor Sinclair took to social networking site in order to give his backing to Mike Phelan after the caretaker boss led Hull City to another Premier League victory with a 2-0 win at Swansea City.

The Tigers were in turmoil this summer after Steve Bruce opted to leave the club amid a lack of transfers, and injuries to key players meant the club started the campaign with only 13 fit senior players.

However, a shock 2-1 home win over champions Leicester City on the opening day of the season provided a glimpse of optimism and Hull have gone on to make it two wins from two with victory over Swansea.

Shaun Maloney and Abel Hernandez struck late on for the visitors, leaving them third place in the Premier League table, and BBC pundit Sinclair gave his support to Mike Phelan via Twitter.

The former Manchester United number two has plenty of experience having worked with Sir Alex Ferguson, and it appears he is very much keen to take over the reigns at the KC Stadium.

Hull would be wise to appoint him considering he knows the squad well and is seemingly capable of getting the best out of his players, yet there is no doubt fresh faces must be added.

Up next for the East Yorkshire side is a home match against Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.
