Michael Dawson on Hull City's disappointments following positive Arsenal result

Hull City Fans

The former Tottenham defender could be on the sidelines for Saturday's trip to Liverpool after limping off injured in the 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium.

Hull City defender Michael Dawson has said injuries are the only real disappointment from the weekend for the side after they left the Emirates Stadium with a point following a 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

It could have been more the Tigers as they were leading 2-1 going into stoppage time but a Danny Welbeck strike gave the home side a share of the spoils. Though conceding the late equaliser had a disappointing element to it, the defender admitted they would have taken a point before kick-off.

Dawson, however, limped off during the game saying he needed treatment on his ankle after he was substituted. 

He told the Hull Daily Mail they will wait and see before assessing the extent of his ankle injury before the side's trip to Liverpool at the weekend as Steve Bruce's side try to negotiate a tricky period of fixtures.

The former Tottenham defender said: “We will have to see how it is in the week. I tried to play on. I got back on the pitch but the swelling was already coming up.

“I love playing, which is why the ankle injury is so frustrating. Hopefully, it won’t be too bad. I am loving my time and this is a great club with great lads and a great gaffer. You can’t ask for a lot more than that. We also have a good team striving to be successful.”

Hull are likely to be without former Everton forward Nikica Jelavic for their trip to Anfield, whilst there seems to be something of a goalkeeping crisis with Allan McGregor and Steve Harper likely to be ruled out through injury.

“I was in the dressing room with my foot in the ice bucket when the equaliser went in. I saw it on television and was obviously gutted for everyone.

“The lads had been fantastic all the way through and worked their socks off. When you go to a place like the Emirates, you have to defend well and we knew that."

They may be missing a couple of key players but Steve Bruce has a pretty good record against Liverpool as a manager and will be looking to get a positive result at Anfield this weekend - and hope that the Reds' Champions League tie with Real Madrid tomorrow night will take a lot out of them.
