Steve Bruce: 'Injuries could force changes'

Hull City boss Steve Bruce admits that several injuries sustained over the past week could force him into multiple changes for his side's clash with Liverpool.

Hull City boss Steve Bruce has admitted that he could be forced to make four or five changes to his side for their clash with Liverpool later today due to a spate of injuries.

Andrew Robertson and Tom Huddlestone have emerged as doubts for the match against the Reds, joining Nikica Jelavic, Michael Dawson and Steve Harper on the injury list for the Tigers.

"It's typical really because we had been riding along very nicely with no injuries, apart from the unfortunate one with Robert Snodgrass on the first day of the season," Bruce told the club's official website.

"Now all of a sudden we've got four or five out so there could be four or five changes to our side on Saturday. It's inevitable that you'll get injuries and suspensions along the way and we have to cope with this, it's as simple as that.

"It's always a blow to lose some of your big players, but we'll get on with it and hope that the squad is big enough and strong enough to cope with it."

Hull are 11th in the Premier League ahead of their clash with Liverpool.
