Bostock is gunning for Bluebirds.

JOHN Bostock, the teenager who gunned down Swansea City with a contender for goal of the season, turns his sights on the Bluebirds today.

Bostock's stunning blast from 30 yards helped Hull City to a 2-0 win against the Swans, but they haven't won in three games since.

He will again operate just behind a main striker, either Mark Cullen or Jay Simpson, for Hull and will look for chances to go for goal.

The 18-year-old playmaker has joined Hull on a season-long loan from Spurs and has been joined in midfield by Robert Koren "We've brought in a few new attacking players, including myself, Robbie Koren and Jay Simpson from Arsenal," said Bostock.

"That's basically our whole attack.

"It's going to take a little while for us to come together, but I know we'll get there.

"We're working very hard and I'm sure we'll succeed."

Simpson, in particular, has struggled to make an impact following his pounds 800,000 switch from Arsenal and he was among the substitutes when rookie Cullen was given the nod to lead Hull's attacking during their 3-1 defeat at Doncaster Rovers.

That is unlikely to change because Simpson has not been in full training this week after dashing back to London for the birth of his first child.
