Hull City boss Phil Brown has hailed the commitment to the cause of new signing George Boateng.
Brown said: "This is a guy who almost went off in a neck brace and then collapsed needing oxygen in the changing room. That's testimony to the player and that typified the performance of the whole team. He's reported in with a thigh strain, but that's not the only little niggle he's got.
"He didn't train yesterday. He'll be with the physiotherapist for the next few days. We'll assess the situation on Thursday where George is concerned."
