Bruce joy at Proschwitz showing
Hull boss Steve Bruce is delighted striker Nick Proschwitz scored his first goals for the club in the weekend win over Ipswich.
Proschwitz, a £2.6million summer signing from German side SC Paderborn, has struggled to hold down a place in the side and has not started for the Tigers since a goalless draw at Charlton in August.
But the 25-year-old stepped off the substitutes' bench for the last 20 minutes with his side trailing 1-0 to Ipswich on Saturday and hauled them level before grabbing a winner seven minutes into injury time.
"I'm delighted for a centre forward, who has waited so long for a chance and taken it," Bruce told the club's official website. "I'm delighted for Nick. He's had to be patient because of the form of (Jay) Simpson and (Sone) Aluko, he's come to a new country, a different style of football, but on Saturday he got two goals, which will hopefully give him the lift that he needs.
"He's a good finisher, we've always known that, but unfortunately in pre-season he missed a couple of chances and I think that took the edge off him a little bit.
"Simpson and Aluko came in and did very well and so Nick had to wait patiently. He certainly did his job on Saturday and that will do him the world of good."
