Hull City's Odubajo protected from automatic one-game ban

23 November 2015, 15:20

London - Hull City manager, Steve Bruce, has revealed that Anglo-Nigerian defender Moses Odubajo had to be replaced seven minutes before the end of contest against Bristol City on Saturday because he was protecting him from being booked.

Assuming the England youth international was yellow-carded at the Ashton Gate Stadium, he would have been hit with an automatic one–game suspension, having previously received yellow cards in four previous matches.

Odubajo was cautioned for the first time this season against Wolves in August before accumulating bookings in games against Preston North End, Brighton & Hove and Milton Keynes Dons.

“But the suspensions are the reason I took Moses Odubajo off in the last 15 minutes because if he had picked up a yellow card, he would have been missing for the Derby game too,” Steve Bruce told Hull City's official website.

“I needed at least one of my full-backs (with Robertson already having been booked). We’ll have a look at things during the week.”

Odubajo has made 16 starts for Hull City since arriving at the KC Stadium on a L3.5 million deal from Brentford in August.

Meanwhile, on a positive note, Nigeria international Sone Aluko made his return from injury when he replaced Moses Odubajo in the 83rd minute.
