With Hull City and the word ‘injury’ almost becoming Hull Injury this season with the players we’ve had, and continue to have out of action, manager Mike Phelan has admitted his relief that following November’s World Cup qualifiers and friendlies, he’s pleased to see players return without further injury problems.

Speaking to the Official Site in his weekly pre game press conference ahead of the match against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, Phelan confirmed that Abel Hernandez (groin), and Will Keane (knee) are obviously missing and we also have Adama Diomande out, as he serves the final game of his suspension, but other than that we are good to go with players known to be fit.

‘We`ve got enough players to take up to Sunderland and perform to the level that I expect them to perform. They`ve trained well and are buoyant because of the result they had last time out, and so they should be because they showed a lot of character and determination which is required at certain times – it`s not always about flair and skill, sometimes you have to hang in there.’

Victory over Southampton was obviously a huge lift for everybody, but whilst we haven’t gained any new injuries over the November break following the disappointing news about youngster Keane, the injury list remains a problem.

Andy Robertson (calf), Shaun Maloney (back), Moses Odubajo (knee), Alex Bruce (achilles) and Greg Luer (knee).

But at least, bit by bit, we are getting some of them back now.
