Hull boss Bruce confirms Dudgeon Cup start

Hull City boss Steve Bruce will hand defender Joe Dudgeon a start against Capital One Cup opponents Leyton Orient.

The 22-year-old former Manchester United fullback has not played a competitive fixture since the 3-2 loss to Blackpool on October 2 of last season and endured an arduous rehabilitation to rectify a historic bone defect in his right knee.

"It's a big game for him but it's one he deserves," Bruce told the Hull Daily Mail.

"He's had a wonderful attitude throughout all of his injury problems. It must have been an awful time for him. He deserves to stay injury-free now."
