Allam on what he feels has been Hull's main problem this season

Hull City owner Ehab Allam says injuries haven't helped his side this season.

Hull City owner Ehab Allam has told the Hull Daily Mail he feels the side’s problem this season has been injuries.

Hull currently find themselves under real pressure in the bottom three as they try to get points, which will help the side progress up the table and away from safety.

“Our problem has been the number of injuries - Every week, changes have been enforced. It's a different starting XI each week – it's been ridiculous,” he said.

According to physioroom Hull currently have four first team injuries, which is by no means the longest injury list in the Premier League.

Therefore, if that has been the main problem for the Tigers, performances should certainly start improving over the next few weeks.

There’s little doubt that something has to change after the 3-0 thumping the side were given at the hands of Newcastle United last weekend.

The impact of players coming back into the side after injury will give Steve Bruce the same effect as having a new signing coming into the line-up.

Two of the four players listed as injured on physioroom are defenders, which also suggests that resources are currently strained along the club’s backline.

Consistency in selection over the next few weeks will help the side to settle down and hopefully results can improve.
