Hull winger Brady out for a month

Hull winger Robbie Brady will be out of action for around four weeks after opting to have surgery to correct a long-standing hernia problem.

Brady will miss the Tigers' Premier League clash against Aston Villa on Saturday as well as the Republic of Ireland's World Cup qualifiers against Germany and Kazakhstan.

Brady, who has scored three league goals this season including a penalty winner against West Ham last Saturday, had hoped to put off his operation until the international break. But the club's head of medical services Rob Price said Brady had conceded it was worth having the operation as soon as possible.

Price told the Tigers' official website: "It's actually a condition that we've been managing for around six weeks now. Robbie has managed to play through that and been particularly successful despite being in a reasonable amount of pain.

"We had a sit-down between Robbie, the manager and myself to make a decision on when it would be best to have the surgery and Robbie decided that he couldn't really continue to play with the pain he was having.''
