No fresh injury concerns ahead of Millwall

26 November 2021

Grant McCann has confirmed that he has no fresh injury concerns to contend with ahead of Hull City’s Championship fixture against Millwall.

The Tigers came away from the Cardiff City Stadium with a hard-fought three points in midweek, and McCann says his players have come through unscathed.

“Everyone who was with us at Cardiff will be available again on Saturday,” McCann said.

“We always look at the opposition and where we can hurt them. We’ll see where the team is in terms of freshness. There are a lot of things that go into it (team selection). We have to take everything into consideration whether that be the stats or wellbeing.”

One player who was a doubt after coming off with concussion against the Bluebirds was Callum Elder. The defender was forced off in first half stoppage time after a clash with Kieffer Moore. However, McCann says that was mainly a precautionary measure.

“He’s fine,” McCann added.

“He came off as a precaution. He defended a ball at the back post against Kieffer Moore and I think he just got a finger or elbow into his eye. His vision was a bit blurred for a bit. After the game, he was seeing things clear as crystal again.

“He’s had some tests and we expect him to be OK.”

The Tigers will welcome Di’Shon Bernard back into the fold as the defender returns from his one-match suspension, while Tom Huddlestone also made his return from injury against Cardiff. McCann was also quick to mention Jevon Mills, who made his first-team debut in black and amber.

“We’ve been so unfortunate with the injuries and illnesses that we’ve got in that position (defence).

“Di’Shon (Bernard) is coming back now having served his one-match suspension. Callum is OK and you’ve seen Tom Huddlestone come on and play in the middle of that three. You’ve also seen young Jevon Mills come on - a 17-year-old boy who’s got a big future.”
