Bruce said: “I am sure there are people caught between supporting the rugby team and supporting the football team.
“People will still come out and support us though, of course they will, but we are mindful that half the city will be going down to Wembley for the rugby and we wish them the best of luck.
“For the city itself, people here find it tough. It’s a real tough working class city and people find it hard to make a trip to Wembley or buy a ticket to a Premier League game so they deserve a bit of success.”
Hull head into the game with no fresh injury concerns with Stephen Quinn and Abdoulaye Faye still out with hamstring and calf injuries.
Bruce will assess his side ahead of the game with summer signings Tom Huddlestone, George Boyd and Jake Livermore all hoping for to start.
Norwich meanwhile will be without striker Gary Hooper and winger Elliott Bennett for the game. Former Celtic frontman Hooper needs a while longer to recover from a knock he picked up in City’s final pre-season match against Panathinaikos while Bennett injured ligaments in his knee in the draw with Everton and faces a length spell on the sidelines.
However Anthony Pilkington, Sebastien Bassong and Robert Snodgrass are all back in the squad following recent injuries while Johan Elemander could feature should international clearance arrive in time.
The former Bolton striker joined the club on a season long loan deal from Galatasaray and could make his debut. Another set for his debut is Leroy Fer with the combative midfielder available fol-lowing suspension.
This one gets underway at the KC Stadium Hull at 15:00 GMT.
