Hull goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic has been given the all clear after suffering a facial injury in Saturday's 3-1 defeat by Sheffield Wednesday.

The 28-year-old was taken off on a stretcher wearing a neck brace and taken to hospital for tests.

"All results thankfully came out normal," said head of medical services Rob Price.

"At no time did he suffer a loss of consciousness, he was completely responsive throughout."

Bruce concerned for Jakupovic

The Swiss international collided with Owls defender Reda Johnson, just moments after he conceded an own goal to give Wednesday a 2-1 lead.

He received lengthy treatment on the pitch before he was carried off.

The defeat was confirmed in injury time when Michail Antonio beat stand-in keeper Mark Oxley and Jay Simpson missed a penalty for the home side.

Despite the defeat, Bruce's side remain second in the Championship table but eight points behind leaders Cardiff.
