Hull boss Bruce delighted for Jakupovic after Liverpool cleansheet

Hull City boss Steve Bruce was delighted for Eldin Jakupovic after his cleansheet at Liverpool.

Hull have been hit hard by injuries, not least in goal with Allan McGregor and Steve Harper out, providing the opportunity for the Swiss Jakupovic to come in.

Bruce said: "I would expect him to make those saves but, to be fair to the kid, he has waited a long time. It is not easy being the third-choice goalkeeper.

"The corners were raining in from Steven Gerrard and he stood up to the task of it. Maybe 18 months ago he found that a struggle.

"He will remember that, he has kept a clean sheet at Anfield."
