Hull City boss shares early injury update on Ryan Giles and Lewie Coyle after Leeds United loss

Hull City boss Liam Rosenior has said they will ‘check’ on Ryan Giles and Lewie Coyle ahead of the weekend.

Hull City were beaten 3-1 away at Leeds United at Elland Road in the Championship last night.

Giles and Coyle both went off injured against the Whites and were replaced by Matty Jacob and Cyrus Christie respectively.

Rosenior has provided an early update on the pair, as per his interview with BBC Humberside Sport: “I don’t know yet, I’ve got to be honest. They are iced up, they are stiff, they are sore. The individual performances of the lads made me so proud, every single one.

“Coyley put in a magnificent performance. For me, we were without the best centre-half in the league (Jacob Greaves). Gilo’s (is a) groin, I think Coyley has done his back. We’ll have to check on those two.”

Who is this?

Giles joined Hull on loan from Luton Town during the January transfer window and Jacob will be ready to step in if he is to miss the trip to face his former club Cardiff City on Saturday.

The Tigers also have James Furlong as another potential option to pick from in that position. However, the summer recruit from Brighton and Hove Albion hasn’t played in the league yet this season.

Coyle stepped in at centre-back yesterday against Leeds and impressed before he had to go off injured.

The skipper will now be assessed along with Giles ahead of their trip to face the Bluebirds.

Jacob Greaves will be back from suspension for that one and is expected to slot back into the starting XI in the heart of defence alongside Alfie Jones, with Sean McLoughlin providing back-up from the bench again.

If Coyle is to be out of action, Rosenior has a few players to choose from at right-back such as Christie or Regan Slater again.

Hull are six points off the play-offs after losing to Daniel Farke’s men but still have a game in hand on Norwich City’s in 6th.

The Tigers are winless in their last six outings though and although they played well against Leeds, they are struggling to turn their possession and impressive ball keeping abilities into real chances at the top end of the pitch.
