No Fresh Injury Concerns Ahead of Lincoln

23 April 2021

Hull City have no fresh injury concerns ahead of tomorrow’s League One match at Lincoln City.

Asked about team news in his pre-match press conference, Grant McCann responded: “We are the same as we were for Tuesday. Everybody came through the game fine.

“The only three players we haven’t got available are long-term ones.

“Tommy Mayer has come out of his boot today and will start working on the grass over the next three, four weeks.

“Festus Arthur has been out on the grass – again, we’ll probably not see him until next season.

“Callum Jones, again, is taking his time with a little groin problem he’s got – we’ll probably not see him until next season.

“They’re the three long-term ones but everybody else is fine.”

Left-backs Brandon Fleming and Max Clark stepped up their recovery from public bone and hamstring injuries respectively by playing 90 minutes for the Under-23s on Tuesday night.

The Tigers emerged 3-1 winners against league leaders Bristol City and McCann spoke of the importance of having players ready to feature for the first team if called upon.

“It was really pleasing to see that Under-23s game and the performance of some of the players was excellent – not only the senior players but some of the younger ones as well,” he said.

“It was nice to see McCauley Snelgrove get a couple of goals, Ahmed Salam scored.

“The performances of Brandon, Max and Jordan Flores were pleasing to see.

“It’s important when we can to get those players the minutes they need because at any given time they could be called upon to play in our team.

“As we’ve seen this season, things can happen very quickly when you go from not being on the substitutes’ bench to starting a game. It’s important we stay on top of people’s fitness levels.”
