Bruce is keen on securing some signings.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce is keen on strengthening his side after acquiring more injuries in their 1-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

The Tigers dropped down to the relegation zone after Saido Berahino's goal at The Hawthorns on Saturday, and with Nikica Jelavic and Abel Hernandez limping off with knee and groin injuries respectively, Hull played most of the game without a striker.

Robert Snodgrass, Mohamed Diame, Andy Robertson, Sone Aluko Liam Rosenior and Gaston Ramirez are on a lengthy injury spell and Steve Bruce hopes he is given the go ahead to secure some signings in the transfer window.

“To be fair to the board, since I've been there they've backed everything that I've tried to do," Bruce said.

“Even in the summer we lost Snodgrass and we knew he was going to be out for the season, they let me go and get Ramirez and Ben Arfa.

"So of course if we can get somebody that we can bring in to try and make us better than we will.

“But then half of the Premier League will be looking to do the same. It's going to be difficult and frustrating, but we will try our best.”
