Hull defender Alex Bruce ruled out for a month

Hull defender Alex Bruce will be out for up to a month after injuring his hamstring.

After a spell out of the side, Bruce returned for the Tigers in their 0-0 draw at Liverpool last month and was expected to keep his place for Saturday's home clash against Southampton.

But he went down at the end of the final pre-match training session and missed the match.

The 30-year-old will also be unavailable for Northern Ireland's Euro 2016 qualifier in Romania on November 14, though it is understood he was not in the provisional squad.

"Alex got injured in training on Friday, one of the last kicks of the session," manager Steve Bruce told Hull's official website.

"It's a hamstring but we don't think it's too serious. It's probably going to be two, three or four weeks."

Bruce eyeing revenge on Saints

Defender Alex Bruce is desperate for Hull to get their own back on Southampton.

The Saints did the double over the Tigers last season, easing to a 4-1 victory on home turf having already taken a 1-0 win at the KC Stadium.

They were a bit of a bogey team for us last year.

They played very well here and at St Mary's. Hopefully we can put that right with a win.

We have to approach it in the right way because we owe them one as it stands.

They've hit the ground running this season but hopefully we can stop them in their tracks.

Ince heads to Forest

Nottingham Forest have completed the loan signing of Hull midfielder Tom Ince.

Reds boss Stuart Pearce has been in talks with the Barclays Premier League club for several days and on Thursday morning an agreement was reached for the 22-year-old winger to move to the City Ground on a deal until December 28.

Pearce is keen to breathe new life into his side's promotion push, following a seven-match winless run in the Sky Bet Championship, and Ince will go straight into the Forest squad for Saturday's trip to Huddersfield.
