Hull City remain hopeful that defender Alex Bruce will be ready for action in game week 23 after failing to re-appear for the second half at the Boleyn Ground on Sunday.
Bruce adds to an ever-growing injury list after suffering from a thigh strain although the initial reports suggest that the pull is only minor with a projected absence of between 2-4 weeks. With nine players currently unavailable due to injury or illness Steve Bruce will welcome the opportunity for a much-needed rest this weekend and the chance to heal his walking wounded having fell at the first FA Cup hurdle losing 2-0 at the Emirates in the third round. Alex Bruce is one of four defenders hampered by injury with Liam Rosenior and James Chester currently out long-term while Andrew Robertson could be back in early February. Jan 20 - 4:43 PM

Alex Bruce deputized for the injured Michael Dawson to great effect in the Week 9 nil-nil draw with Liverpool.

The arrival of Michael Dawson has limited Alex Bruce's opportunities to start this season. With Dawson out of the starting line-up for a spell, Alex Bruce took the opportunity to contribute to a surprise clean sheet against a usually potent Liverpool attack. The manager's son blocked three shots, intercepted four passes and won a tackle for the cause. Dawson may still be out for a while longer but Bruce isn't likely to repeat this performance often given Hull City's recent defensive effort.
