Hull City manager Nigel Pearson remains in hospital after being taken ill on Friday.

He was taken to hospital after complaining of feeling unwell following a training session.

In a statement, the club said Pearson underwent tests which had not revealed any problems. Pearson is expected to be discharged from hospital on Tuesday.

Assistant manager Craig Shakespeare took charge of the team for Saturday's game at Doncaster, which Hull lost 3-1.

Pearson joined the Tigers in June on a three-year contract following the club's relegation from the Premier League.
