HULL AND IRELAND winger Robbie Brady could be set to miss the rest of the Premier League season following an unusual training ground accident.

The 23-year-old, who has been in good form of late, missed Hull’s clash with Stoke this weekend, owing to the freak accident.

“Unfortunately Brady has fallen down a hole in the training ground and it looks an awful injury, I have to say,” Bruce told reporters after the game.

“We won’t know the extent of it until he has had scans.

“After seeing him on Friday I doubt he will be available for weeks. It could be the rest of the season.”

Brady, who featured in Ireland’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Scotland last November, and also starred in their subsequent win over USA, now looks set to miss the side’s crucial upcoming match at home to Poland on 29 March.

Meanwhile, Bruce also responded to controversy relating to the bad injury Stephen Ireland picked up at the weekend, claiming that the midfielder should have been sent off beforehand.

“He committed the worst challenge on the pitch on David Meyler. He shouldn’t have been on the pitch if the referee had done his job.”

“I could show you a picture of Figueroa’s ankle, he had five stitches in it and carried on,” Bruce added.

“Nobody wants to see a cut or an injury as bad as Stephen Ireland had but unfortunately in football it happens.”
