Injury Forces Pugh To End Loan Spell Early

25 April 2019
Marc Pugh has returned to parent club AFC Bournemouth after being ruled out for the remainder of the season through injury.

The 32-year-old suffered a broken toe in the early stages of the Tigers’ 3-0 home defeat to Sheffield United on Easter Monday and will now miss the final two games of the Sky Bet Championship campaign against Swansea City and Bristol City.

Pugh – who scored three goals in 14 appearances during his three-month spell with the Tigers – has returned to the Cherries for further treatment.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of facing Swansea City, Head Coach Nigel Adkins said: “Marc broke his toe in the first few minutes of the Sheffield United game. That injury has unfortunately ruled him out for the rest of the season.

“As a result, he’s said his goodbyes to everyone at the training ground this morning and returned to his parent club Bournemouth.

“We thank Marc for all his efforts and all his hard work. He’s a great character and a great professional. I can’t speak highly enough of him. We wish him well in the future.”

Everyone at Hull City would like to thank Marc for his efforts whilst on loan at the KCOM Stadium and wish him all the best for the future.
