TONY Warner believes Hull City can get their first ever Premier League season off to the best possible start by beating Fulham on the opening day.

Having spent the past two seasons on the books at Craven Cottage, the goalkeeper is well placed to talk about their credentials.

The 34-year-old may only have made seven first-team appearances during his spell, but he’s trained at close quarters with the Cottagers’ squad on a daily basis.

Although he still has friends at the London club, there’s nothing Warner would like to do more than beat them on August 16.

“It’s a strange game how these things pop up now and again” he told the Mail.

“I’ll definitely be looking to turn Fulham over on the first day of the season and I’m aiming to be part of it.

“That’s going to be my main goal but I’m sure it’ll be the goal for everyone here.

“We all want to get off to a good start. I’ve got nothing against Fulham at all, it was a great club for me. All the lads there are great and I always enjoyed my time there.

“There’s no bad blood but it’s nice to get an early win in the season no matter who you are playing.”
