Hull City's Uruguayan striker Abel Hernandez is ready, willing and Abel to propel last season's relegated Tigers back into the Premier League.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Hull's star striker - who netted 20 times during his side's successful promotion bid two years ago - said he's eager to better his second-tier form this season and produce the same result for the North East club come the end of the campaign.

Hernandez arrived at Hull three years ago from Sicilian club Palermo as the team's record buy, costing £10m at the time, and he's certainly proved worth the money due to his lethal nature in front of goal.

He's already off to a good start in achieving his objective to top his previous goal record in the Championship, having bagged a hat-trick against Burton as Leonid Slulsky's men demolished the Brewers 4-1 on Saturday.

His treble against Nigel Clough's team took his tally to 23 in just 41 outings in England's second-tier, and it's only sated his appetite for more goals as he and the rest of the Tigers' squad chase an instant return to the Premier League.

Hernandez said:”I’m out to score more than I did last time we played in this division. That was a very good season for me - my best in English football so far - but I want to do even better this time.

“It would be great to beat that total, and that’s my aim. But my main focus is to improve here at Hull and help us achieve our targets this season.

“That is why I am working hard not only to achieve my own personal goals, but also for the team as well. We all want to enjoy a successful season.”
