HULL CITY: Jakupovic given all-clear after injury scare
ELDIN Jakupovic has been cleared of serious injury following yesterday's 3-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday, Hull City have confirmed in a statement this morning.
The 28-year-old goalkeeper was stretchered off and taken to Hull Royal Infirmary after he collided with Owls defender Reda Johnson attempting to rectify a mistake that had handed the visitors a late 2-1 lead.
However, fears of a worrying head injury were allayed this morning with a club statement detailing all tests carried out on Jakupovic have come back clear.
Jakupovic could now retain his place in the side when City travel to Leyton Orient in the FA Cup third round replay on Tuesday if he is fit to train tomorrow.
