STEVE BRUCE says Hull will use the in­ter­na­tional break to help Mo Di­ame end his in­jury night­mare.

The mid­fielder hasn’t fea­tured since De­cem­ber 3 be­cause of an on­go­ing knee prob­lem.

Bruce is hope­ful Di­ame

will be in the reckoning for the Tigers’ sur­vival push – start­ing with the trip to Swansea on April 4.

He said: “It’s a big two weeks for Mo. He’s been out for fo ur-and-ahalf months.

time so we’ll have to see how he trains.

“He’s got to train for the next eight days, then we’ll look at putting him into some sort of game.” Di­ame moved to Hull from West Ham for £3.5mil­lion in the sum­mer and he made a fly­ing start to his ca­reer at the KC Sta­dium.

The Sene­gal star scored four goals in 14 games be­fore in­jury struck. Bruce added: “We missed him just like we missed Ni­kica Jelavic and Michael Daw­son.

“When you’re with­out your big guns, it’s al­ways a strug­gle.”
