McCann Provides Injury Update

3 December 2020

Grant McCann provided injury updates on a trio of first team players following the Tigers' 2-1 win over Doncaster Rovers on Wednesday night.

Jordy de Wijs suffered a fractured eye socket in Sunday's Emirates FA Cup fixture against Stevenage, but McCann is hopeful the Dutch defender won't be absent for a prolonged period.

"Jordy had a whack in the Stevenage game and you saw him coming off because he couldn’t see - he had blurred vision," said McCann. "It’s disappointing because Jordy was just getting himself back in a good place and this has happened.

"We’ll have to see whether we can get him through games if need be in terms of wearing a mask or whether he doesn’t need to wear one. I’m hoping it’s not going to set him back too long. I’m hoping we can get him back on the training ground non-contact maybe end of next week."

Elsewhere, midfielders Dan Batty and Callum Jones are set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering hamstring injuries.

Speaking on the duo, McCann said: "Dan Batty felt his hamstring after the game. I think he covered a lot of ground in the Stevenage game which was phenomenal. His is just fatigue in terms of his hamstring.

"Young Callum Jones has done his quite badly. He's probably going to be out for about four weeks."
