Tigers sweating on Bruce fitness

Hull are assessing the severity of the groin injury that forced defender Alex Bruce off against Blackpool on Tuesday night.
The defender had to be substituted late in the first half of the 3-2 home defeat to the Tangerines and is a major doubt ahead of the clash with Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
With his son likely to miss the trip to Hillsborough, Tigers boss Steve Bruce will hope that Joe Dudgeon can recover from his knee injury in time to face the Owls.
