Hull boss claims FA Cup break will help Tigers in Premier League relegation fight

first_img1 Hull City manager Steve Bruce Steve Bruce is sticking with his Hull City squad to keep the struggling club up this season.The Tigers boss has sent Tom Ince out on loan to Championship side Derby and Harry Maguire joined him by dropping down a division to help Wigan.But Bruce does not expect his side to come up short in the relegation battle as they have a number of players, including Mo Diame, who are returning from injury.Hull are 16th in the table after beating Aston Villa 2-0 in their last Premier League game on February 10 and return to action this weekend when they face fellow strugglers QPR on Saturday.And Bruce feels the break over the FA Cup weekend will only work in their favour.“It will allow those players that have come in and done a wonderful job in the last couple of games to recover,” Bruce said.“It will also help some of our injuries to recover. I had to leave two or three players out of the squad (against Villa) and I also let Harry Maguire out on loan because we’re getting a few people back fit.“Mo is hopefully just around the corner. He may have a chance for the QPR game. Let’s hope he can.”last_img
